Dr. Jean Houston, scholar, philosopher and researcher in Human Capacities, is one of the foremost visionary thinkers and doers of our time. She is long regarded as one of the principal founders of the Human Potential Movement.
In 1965, along with her husband Dr. Robert Masters, Dr. Houston founded The Foundation for Mind Research. She is also the founder and principal teacher of the Mystery School, a program of cross-cultural, mythic and spiritual studies, dedicated to teaching history, philosophy, the New Physics, psychology, anthropology, myth and the many dimensions of human potential. The Mystery School began in 1983 and takes place on both the East and West Coasts annually.
Dr. Houston is a prolific writer and author of 26 published books, including A Passion for the Possible, The Possible Human, Public Like a Frog, A Mythic Life: Learning to Live Our Greater Story, and The Passion of Isis and Osiris. Her book Jump Time explores a new Global Paradigm and speaks boldly of a re-genesis of human society. The questions raised in this book and the exciting suggestion of possibilities are producing new pioneers – Social Artists – working on the frontiers of this new global society. As well as the Mystery School, Dr. Houston offers seminars in Social Artistry.
A powerful and dynamic speaker, she holds conferences and seminars with social leaders, educational institutions and business organizations worldwide. Dr. Houston has worked intensively in 40 cultures helping to enhance and deepen their own uniqueness while they become part of the global community. She has worked in over 100 countries and is the recipient of many awards. She works at all levels of leadership and is currently broadening her work with the United Nations as a Senior Advisor to the UNDP – training leaders in developing countries this new field of Social Artistry (human development in the light of social complexity).
In 2007, Dr. Houston received a mandate from Dr. Monica Sharma, the Director of Leadership and Capacity Development for the United Nations to train 10,000 trainers, who in turn will be training some 100 million people worldwide by 2017.
