Introducing Dr Jean Housten

“In our time we have come to the stage where the real work of humanity begins.

It is the time where we partner Creation in the creation of ourselves, in the restoration of the biosphere, the regenesis of society and in the assuming of a new type of culture; the culture of Kindness.

Herein, we live daily life reconnected and recharged by the Source, so as to become liberated and engaged in the world and in our tasks.”

--Jean Houston

One of the best protective factors and motivational tools that I have engaged with in the rehearsal room is The Entelechy Exercise, taught to me by my mentor, Dr. Jean Houston. When I did this exercise with the actors, they seem to become bigger, stronger, more daring. One of my co-creators did the exercise with us and commented “Wow, why don’t I become that guy!”) and I totally agreed. We so often operate in the zone of the ordinary. We forget that we are capable of the most extraordinary things, if only we dare. If only we bring risk a little bit closer. Jean Houston’s entelechy exercise encourages the participant to step into their future self, fully developed, fully formed, fully alive, fully functioning: the exquisite creator of an exquisite world. The best of the best. This wise one can answer questions, can journey along side you, can become you, is you.
