The passion of Isis and Osiris : a union of two souls by Jean Houston( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
In The Passion of Isis and Osiris, Jean Houston, internationally renowned philosopher, psychologist, and explorer of world myth, takes us deep into the mysteries of Egypt, land of the ancient soul within us all. It is a culture in which every moment is filled with the interplay of human and divine. At the very center of Egyptian life, and its most eternal legacy to the world, is hieroglyphic thinking. The Egyptians created a language and perception of reality in which many meanings dance together - mind and emotion, spirit and material, thought, word, and image all coalesce in a single vibrant synergy. Divine humans interact with living gods and guides who link the worlds of nature, humanity, and cosmic spirit. Jean Houston brings this world to wonderful life, showing how the myth of Isis and Osiris gives modern readers a design for the marriage of body and soul, life and death, the tangible and the hidden. She shows how - in detailed exercises and dramatic enactments that can be done in groups or alone - we can identify the Isis and Osiris that are seeking reunion in each of us. The Passion of Isis and Osiris re-creates nothing less than a moment of Egyptian magic that allows us to enter a consciousness that is the gateway to transcendent love. This story of two spiritual soulmates still has resonance for us today, whether we are seeking to join the disparate parts of self of searching for a mate to bond with, soul to soul

Psychology of Purpose ( visu )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
So many books and seminars have emerged over the last decade with discovering one's "purpose" as their theme. What are the cultural and historic reasons for this, given the unique shifts and challenges of our time? How to engender the passion for the possible in our human development while discovering what that "possible" is? Is it even possible to become an artist of destiny, capable of decoding the patterns, clues, and relationships that point you to a mystery that cannot be known directly? Ultimately when it comes down to our fascination with purpose, are we fooling ourselves or are we present at the birth of an opportunity that exceeds our imagination
The hero and the goddess : the Odyssey as pathway to personal transformation by Jean Houston( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
All great stories can change our lives, and practically none is more transformational than Homer's The Odyssey, which had a power so great that it launched Greek civilization and has influenced the West ever since. In this fresh approach to self-realization, human potentials leader Jean Houston provides empowering experiential exercises at every key stage of Homer's epic to make The Odyssey our own journey. As we set sail with Odysseus, together we endure loss and suffering, the search for the divine Beloved, and the joy of finally arriving home. "Tapping the power of these archetypes," says Houston, "helps us effect healing in areas that have kept us immobilized and anguished. By raising our own tragic dimension to a mythic level, we awaken to a larger, nobler life."
