In 'A Mythic Life', Jean Houston- celebrated author, renowned psychologist, and pioneer of the Human Potential movement- uses the story of her life to show each of us how we can discover mythic qualities present in our own lives. Building upon the work of Joseph Cambell, Houston shows how these mythic patterns that underlie all of our lives are repeated again and again- across cultures and across time.

"Jean Houston is my hero: a brilliant storyteller. A witty and provocative writer. A soulful woman. A tantalising common-sense intellectual. I love her and I love this delicious book".
DR. WAYNE W. DYER, author of 'Your Erroneous Zones and Your Sacred Self'
