Banyen's Description: 

It is time to ask the great questions... The world is hungry for vision...There is an insistence in the mud, contractions shiver through the Earth womb, patterns of possibility strain to emerge from the rough clay of changing social structures.

A pioneer of the human potential movement and “evocateuse of the new human,” Jean Houston (author of books such as A Mythic Life and The Possible Human) has kindled the creative sparkle for thousands of people. In Jump Time, she explains how a series of concrete, identifiable elements have been building over the previous generation and how they point to a quantum leap forward for each of us—how humanity is on the brink of this leap and how every individual can participate.

The new millennium is a time in which what we have scarcely dared to dream is beginning to reveal its shape. The spectacular and dangerous changes that come with this millennial beginning require that we use every capacity we have in order to make this transition. What must we do to prepare ourselves for this rich and challenging time?

For a new world to be born, we must bring a new mind to bear. Nothing less will do in Jump Time.

Among the areas she explores are:

ª  The shift in human nature that is moving people to discover and use dormant or little-known capacities

ª  How the breakthroughs in technological connection and the new ways of being in community in global society are re-patterning human consciousness

ª  How a dramatic new awareness of our shared and intermingled ecology, culture, economy, and ethnicity are creating a different kind of human being for the 21st century.

Given the scientific, technological, cross-cultural, and social tools at hand, and given, too, that humanity is searching as never before to cooperate in so many areas, it seems feasible to me that we may be ready to integrate inner and outer dimensions of life in ways that infuse new depth into psychological and spiritual growth and new purpose and respons-ibility into social transformation.

A brilliant take on the revolution in human awareness and abilities, Jump Time is a handbook for life in the 21st century.

Publisher’s Description: 

Dr.Houston provides practical and potent ideas on ways to create a truly new future for ourselves, our community, and our planet.One of the founders of the human-potential movement shows how the millennial passage portends a new birth of humanity - a jump-time in both global and individual consciousness. Houston explains how a series of concrete, identifiable elements have been building over the previous generation and how they point to a quantum leap forward for each of us. Her newest book is the ultimate statement of the revolution in human potential. It is the fruitful culmination of Houston’s work as a psychologist and cultural anthropologist. Now in paper!
