Dr. Jean Houston, scholar, philosopher and researcher in human capacities, is one of the foremost visionary thinkers and doers of our time, one of the principal founders of the Human Potential Movement. A powerful and dynamic speaker, she holds conferences and seminars with social leaders, educational institutions and business organizations worldwide. Jean Houston has worked intensively in 40 cultures and 100 countries helping to enhance and deepen their own uniqueness while they become part of the global community.

Her ability to inspire and invigorate people enables her to readily convey her vision — the finest possible achievement of the individual potential. In 1965, along with her husband Dr. Robert Masters, Dr. Houston founded The Foundation for Mind Research. She is also the founder and principal faculty (since 1982) of the Mystery School — a school of human development — a program of cross-cultural, mythic and spiritual studies, dedicated to teaching history, philosophy, the New Physics, psychology, anthropology, myth and the many dimensions of human potential. A former advisor for UNICEF, she has worked with the United Nations Development Program since 2003, training leaders in human and cultural development and in Social Artistry, a community-leadership program she developed. Jean has consulted for international leaders, including the Dalai Lama, Bill and Hillary Clinton and lectures worldwide. 

She is a prolific writer and author of 28 books, including A Passion for the Possible, Search for the Beloved, Life Force, The Possible Human, Public Like a Frog, A Mythic Life: Learning to Live Our Greater Story and Manual of the Peacemaker.
