9780062502827: A Mythic Life: Learning to Live Our Greater Story

Bob Woodward made Jean Houston national news in the summer of 1996 when he revealed her working friendship with Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton, Woodward reported, connected most enthusiastically with Dr. Houston and anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson when they met with the Clintons at a Camp David retreat that also included presentations by Marianne Williamson, Anthony Robbins, and Stephen Covey. Dr. Houston subsequently consultedregularly at the White House, especially helping Mrs. Clinton with herbestselling book It Takes a Village.The tabloid press had a field day, but the sensationalistic coverage onlyrevealed how out of touch the popular media are with the profound role that advanced psychology and spirituality play in people's lives today. Jean Houston is at the cutting edge of the work on realizing the fullness of our human potential, which is as mainstream and pervasive in our culture ascomputer technology.A Mythic Life presents Jean Houston's real story and her true teaching. Here draws on her personal history and vast cultural knowledge to show how we can experience in our own lives the greater human story that is revealed myths and discover our real potential.

Review:

This autobiography is at times mindboggling (how comes she did meet all the right people at the right time), at times hilarious (wait till you read how she speaks to her dog) and always interesting and intriguing. Jean Houston touches all the right spots when she describes her spiritual yearnings from childhood on, the trials and tribulations along the way, and the excitement of finding answers and of helping others to discover their own path. She is an excellent storyteller, and I found the book fast paced and entertaining. And packaged in this life story is so much interesting and useful information, and inspiration for further reading - I can only highly recommend the book. --Reader
