Jean Houston At CSUS Feb. 18-20


Jean Houston, an influential thinker in human potential, will present a three-day workshop at California State University, Sacramento Feb. 18-20.

The workshop will explore ways of creating new futures for individuals, communities and the world, with topics such as "The Spiritual Impulse Behind Technology," "How to Harvest and Utilize the Genius of Cultures," and "Balancing the Internet with the Inner Net."

Houston has written 15 books, spoken in more than 40 countries and worked personally with leaders throughout the world. She often led seminars with the late Joseph Campbell on the relationship between ancient myths and modern society. For the last 30 years she has co-directed the Foundation for Mind Research and she founded the Mystery School.

For all her achievements, however, Houston may be best known for helping First Lady Hillary Clinton write It Takes a Village. Their imagined exercise on what Eleanor Roosevelt might have said about improving society for children was leaked to the press in 1996 and portrayed as new-age mysticism.

The upcoming workshop is 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. Registration is $224 and $100 for CSUS students, and space may be reserved by calling Regional and Continuing Education at (916) 278-4433 ext. 0.
