(Note: In two small segments of this interview you will hear me yelling at my dog who was barking and creating lots of noise. I apologize for the yelling I have asked Jean to do another interview, but wanted to get this posted until she complets the re-do. I thought the mute was on but obviously not. The wonders of recording podcast without having a sound proof room. Enjoy the interview anyway, she is an amazing woman.)
I recently had the honor and pleasure of interviewing Jean Houston about her new book entitled “The Wizard of Us”.
Jean provides the reader with lessons that will transform and inspire. She utilizes the famous heros journey story from the Wizard of Oz as the training ground. ”The Wizard of Us” offers new understanding of the human condition, and the importance of myth and the critical nature of our role and how we can participate in the creation of a better world.
As Jean states we are living in the most unique time in human history. Other times in history thought they were it. They were wrong states Jean. This is it. Often our everyday, local experience is not sufficient for the enormity of the challenges that are laid upon us in this most remarkable of times.
Join author Jean Houston on a journey, one where you can write a new story about your life and live the life your soul wishes you to live. ”The Wizard of Us” will take you there through story and myth— find the courage and heart and venture with the Oz characters while you write your new story.
