Dr. Jean Houston 'is a scholar and researcher in human capacities, and for the past 30 years has co-directed, with her husband Dr. Robert Masters, the Foundation for Mind Research. Their work has focused on the understanding of latent human abilities. She is the founder of the Mystery School--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 our human potential.' Seeing her when she visited Auckland was a real highlight.

Myth and
A good often-updated selection of articles 'on mythology and archetypal psychology, both within the contemporary culture and within the individual psyche.' Maggie Macary, the site owner, is currently working toward her PHD Degree in Mythological Studies from Pacifica Graduate Institute and is currently a personal myth coach, conducting personal myth and transformation workshops. A good links page.

The friend of Maggie Macary (see above), Stephanie Pope's site has a cool elegance to it that I find attractive.

This website seems to be to be founded on similar principles to the Taromandala Teachings. Wonderful stuff. As the site says: "The First Picture Guide to the 16 Personality Types. See the 16 Personality Types illustrated with universal images and icons. The 16 Personality Types have never been mapped in this way before; however, these three maps will make sense to you upon first glance because they are created with the universal compass that is innate to every human being." (That 'universal compass' I call the Taromandala).
