We are approaching the “end of history as we know it,” says Jean Houston–history as polarization. “Now the deep story can begin.” She draws on the riches of ancient myths–and profound insights into the present world situation–to look into the possibilities and necessities of the world of the future. Houston is always a joy to listen to, from her considerations of virtual reality to her vision of “Godschool 101,” from stories of her girlhood friendship with Teilhard de Chardin to her current work as a cultural facilitator throughout the world. She sees a new kind of global mythology emerging from the meeting of minds and lives, and describes how “these stories are converging in fascinating ways.” She is a philosopher, psychologist and author of many books including The Hero and the Goddess: The Odyssey as Mystery and Initiation (Ballantine 1992).
