Fields of Dreams: Travels in the Wildflower Meadows of North America
In A Mythic Life, Jean Houston shows how we can discover the mythic elements in our lives and explains how our mythology fits into the emerging global consciousness. Drawing from her own life experiences, as well as from the astounding wealth of cultural knowledge she has acquired while working with indigenous peoples all over the world, Houston shows how the mythic patterns that underlie each of our lives are repeated again and again - across cultures and across time - like the patterns that emerge from the seeming chaos in fractal images. Houston uses the story of her life to explain how our recent history is a story of convergence. Thanks to the communications revolution, everything the human race has ever done or thought is suddenly becoming available to each of us. And out of this wealth of cultural knowledge, a new mythology is being born - a mythology that will change the world as it embraces the mythic elements in each of our lives.
