In this book, the written version of the innovative and ground-breaking workshops and programs of lecturer, scholar, philosopher, and pioneer of human development Dr. Jean Houston, readers learn how to gain access to hidden images, ideas, and sensory-based memories, and are introduced to a comprehensive theory and program for conscious creativity.
 
Dr. Houston explains the theories that helped form the foundation of the human potential movement while she teaches readers to draw on their inner resources and employ strategies that have been used successfully by writers and artists, teachers and therapists, actors and athletes, scientists and business executives. This original and essential guide is a passport to the wondrous, and tragic, dimensions of the human psyche. Contains a new foreword by the author.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

What would you be like if you started today to attend the rest of your life, if you turned a corner and awoke? Suddenly, you are right there, an intense observer and participant in all the inner wit and wisdom, in knowings, growings, havings, being more present and alive in several moments than you had been in the previous drowse of years. Many of the so-called larger-than-life people differ from the rest of us chiefly in this one respect: not that they are actually larger or greater or more brilliant, but rather that they are profoundly present to the continuum of their lives. Of course there is more to them. The ages one to ten are present and accounted for, as are ages twenty to thirty, thirty to forty, and so on. There occurs an exponential gain and growth in the creative living use of all one's experience. Thus some die at seventy with an experiential age of seventeen while others are closer to a hundred and seventy, so intimate are they with the happenings of their lives.

At the height of laughter the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities. High comedy, and the laughter that ensues, is an evolutionary event. Together they evoke a biological response that drives the organism to higher levels of organization and integration. Laughter is the loaded latency given us by nature as part of our native equipment to break up the stalemates of our lives and urge us on to deeper and more complex forms of knowing.
