Tapping Your Creative Unconsciousness to Create Programs that Can Make a Difference

In this fascinating seminar, Jean Houston, one of the world’s most renowned experts in the development of human potentials, will have you learning ways to enter into and orchestrate the creative treasury of your own mind. She will bring you to the threshold of your own possibilities as well as showing ways of crossing over into realms larger than your imagination and more complex than all your dreams. You will learn –
• The enhancement of inner senses so as to capture creative ideas.
• Time distortion and accelerated mental process to do in hours what would normally take you days or weeks of work.
• Develop some of the personalities of your inner crew in order to increase your intellectual and writing skills and resources.
• Discover a guiding archetype or quantum partner who can help you in your artistic endeavor, be it writing, performing, producing or directing.
• Discover the way in which you are the living connection between the great stories of all times and places and the expression of these in your creations.


Becoming A Mything Link — Did You Know You Were the Mything Link?

Well, you are. Especially as a professional in transformational entertainment.

You are the living connection between the great stories of all times and places and the playing out of these stories in everyday life. Beneath the soil of your everyday world lies the vast root system of the Once Was and the Could Be.

You will feel this if you have ever gone in quest of something–a new job, a place where you feel at home, a lost love, a new way of being. In every quest you have wandered with Percival in search of the Grail, followed the yellow brick road with Dorothy trying to get back to Kansas, labored with Psyche to be reunited with Eros, meditated with Buddha under the Bodhi tree determined to reach enlightenment. Story is the juice through which consciousness and culture moves.

We are living in a time in which The Story is Changing. We might call it Emergence through Emergency. In this wildly imaginative and informative talk, Jean Houston will lead you into ways of tapping into your mythic mind and coming up with stories that speak to both the challenges and drama of our time.

We will engage the new hero and heroine’s journey of transformation and find ways of presenting them in original and potent forms.

“I once asked an old Australian Aboriginal woman, ‘Maisie, how do we differ from the animals—from wallaby and kangaroo and koala bear?’ And she replied, in some astonishment at my naïveté, ‘Why, Jean, we are the ones who can tell the stories about all the others.’ And that’s what distinguishes our humanity. We are the ones who can tell the stories about all the others.”
