9780722537237: A Passion for the Possible

Expanding on and enriching the inspirational message of her PBS special by the same name, "A Passion for the Possible" declares that our untapped human potential is far greater than we know. Through compelling examples and exercises, Houston shows readers how to explore their potential through courageously committing themselves to living a deeper, larger life as revealed in the great myths and religious traditions of the world.

Review:

Over the past 30 years Jean Houston has dedicated her life to helping people unleash their creative and spiritual potential. As a result she has worked with some of the greatest cultural and spiritual visionaries of our time, such as Margaret Meade and Joseph Campbell. In A Passion for the Possible, written as a complement to the PBS series by the same name, Houston explains what helps people become creative geniuses. The trick is to fully commit to the four levels of self (sensory, psychological, mythic, and spiritual). Acting as a guide to the interior world, Houston once again inspires readers to embody their true potential.

From the Back Cover:

Heralded and championed by Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson, Jean Houston has served as an advisor to President Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton, and she worked closely with Mary Catherine Bateson in helping Hillary Clinton write It Takes a Village. Now comes her most accessible book yet, the companion to her PBS special.

"Jean Houston eloquently reveals the Essential Self--the guide within us all that can lead us to our higher destiny, expose our purpose for being, and manifest all that we can be--if we have the courage to listen." (James Redfield, author of The Celestine Prophecy)

"With elegant simplicity, Jean Houston shows you how to unleash the genius that lies in the depths of your being." (Deepak Chopra, author of The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success)

"Jean Houston teaches the teachers" (Marianne Williamson)

"Jean Houston, like an archaeologist of the human spirit probing the great myths and mysteries, continues to remind us why we are here on this earth now and why we must not take one moment of our lives for granted." (Armand Assante, actor and star of The Odyssey)

"A Passion for the Possible is a guide to expressing our fullest potential as human beings by one of the greatest teachers of this time, or indeed of any time. Jean Houston's work is a blessing in the true sense of the word; it encourages hidden potential to germinate and come to fullest flower." (Joan Borysenko, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind)

"Jean Houston brings down fire from heaven to empower and inspire individual lives." (Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Healing Words and Be Careful What You Pray For, You Just Might Get It)
