Synopses & Reviews
All great stories can change our lives, and practically none is more transformational than Homers The Odyssey, which had a power so great that it launched Greek civilization and has influenced the West ever since. In this fresh approach to self-realization, human potentials leader Jean Houston provides empowering experiential exercises at every key stage of Homers epic to make The Odyssey our own journey. As we set sail with Odysseus, together we endure loss and suffering, the search for the divine Beloved, and the joy of finally arriving home. "Tapping the power of these archetypes," says Houston, "helps us effect healing in areas that have kept us immobilized and anguished. By raising our own tragic dimension to a mythic level, we awaken to a larger, nobler life."

In Praise of Jean Houston
I think that Houston has broken through to a new understanding of the sense and uses of the disciplines of inward turned contemplation.
Jean is a great producer, a creator of significant events. . . as she orchestrates the myriad new voices expressing alternatives of consciousness.
Jean Houston reminds us that we need a new mythology for our age. Without myths, a society becomes sterile and is bereft of meaning and soul. I recommend her highly to those who want to restore the magical and the miraculous in their lives.
