Mystery School series in Chaska; Social Artistry in Oregon


Dr. Jean Houston, internationally-known philosopher, author, cultural historian, seminar leader and educator, is bringing her popular seminar series “The Mystery of Making a Difference: Mystery School” to Minnesota for the first time in 2006.

Now in its 23rd consecutive year, “The Mystery of Making A Difference: Mystery School” 2006 seminar series will take place on four weekends – March 3-5, May 5-7, September 15-17 and December 1-3 – at the Oakridge Conference Center in Chaska, Minn. The cost is $2,450 per person (includes tuition, room and board). To register for the Mystery School seminar series in Minnesota, go to, call Fonda Joyce at 352-621-6687 or e-mail [email protected].

“Making a difference has never been more critical in a world in which so much can go right or disastrously wrong,” Dr. Houston said. “We are the ones who have the most profound task in human history – the task of deciding whether we grow or die. We have an opportunity to play a role in the greatest transition drama the world has ever seen. To do this, we must be able to access the depths of body, mind and spirit to help us gain the courage, resources and passion for the possible.”

After many years of work as a behavioral scientist, Dr. Houston has developed and continues to develop revolutionary new ways of unlocking the latent human capacities that exist in each of us. The seminar series is grounded in group process and participation – providing an opportunity for attendees to fully participate in designing their own future and to make a difference in the world – it is both experiential and experimental, intellectually vigorous, psychologically challenging, spiritually demanding and exhilarating.

Dr. Houston also will present her 2006 Social Artistry in Leadership Program in Oregon this summer. It will be July 28 through August 4 at Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Ore. For more information, please contact Bridget at (541) 488-1200, e-mail [email protected] or visit

As a senior consultant to the United Nations Development Programme, Dr. Houston gives leadership training in Social Artistry, decentralization and Millennium Development Goals to leaders in developing countries throughout the world. She has worked and lectured in more than 75 countries and is the author or co-author of 19 books, including Jump Time, A Passion for the Possible, A Mythic Life and The Possible Human.
