She is also the founder and principal teacher of the Mystery School, a school of human development, 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. This school is in its 24th year and takes place on both the East and West Coasts. She leads an intensive program in Social Artistry with leaders coming from all over the world to study with Dr. Houston and her distinguished associates.

Format: Paperback
In this slim but powerful book, Jean captures one of the mightiest metaphors from North American history to help us figure out how to create a new vision for our nation and the world as we dash for the year 2000. If nothing else, it will assist you in reframing the existing whitewater world about us into one with hopeful patterns of peace and prosperity. Ned Hamson

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J. Ewing on August 29, 1998
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a primer on how to grow spiritually, physically and mentally based upon the teachings of a great Native American who was in touch with the Creator. It includes common themes held in all religions, for all who seek a spiritual path toward personal renewal and God-consciousness. It requires the reader to do the work, acting only as a guide. It has much in common with the 12-step programs of today.

I was surprised by the influence of Christianity. I do appreciate Christianity on its own merit. However, I was hoping for more authentic American Indian tradition prior to the influence of the Westerners. Unfortunately, I could not give it away to friends that too are truth seekers of the Native American sacred practices.
