"This is the most interesting time in human history. This is it--these are the times, we are the people." These are the words of Jean Houston, internationally renowned author, philosopher and teacher, who says this age of "social artistry," requires us to become "artists of the possible." She believes we can create something beautiful out of the chaos we are facing, and establish a new social order, by tapping into the deepest recesses of our minds, and "accessing codes to our creative unconscious." This is exactly what some of the greatest minds of our century have done--people Houston has been privileged to call her friends--people like Mother Teresa, Joseph Campbell, Buckminster Fuller and Margaret Mead. She talks about the American Myth of the Wizard of Oz, the American Mythic tale and what it means on a mythic tale. Houston will fire up your imagination and give you ways to ignite the passion bubbling beneath your quiet exterior.


Jean Houston is a visionary thinker, teacher, and philosopher who pioneered the Human Potential Movement and established the Social Artistry leadership model that she used in her work with the United Nations Development Programme.

She is the author of nearly thirty books, including:
