This is the perspective and discipline that brings the human spirit into contact with the realms of the divine through the use of myth, experiential exercises and rituals.
Sacred psychology assumes that the deepest yearning in every human soul is to return to its spiritual source. Jean Houston is a modern-day leader in this ancient field. She points out that sacred psychology has taken the form of Socrates instructing the youth of Athens, Buddha and the Sangha, and 12th-century knights pursuing the Holy Grail. In The Search for the Beloved, Houston provides a modern-day structure for this traditional spiritual quest, incorporating personal mythology, "rites of pathos," and archetypal imagery. The Search for the Beloved remains a trustworthy tool for those who are excavating the deepest mystery of all--the discovery of creative source and destiny.About the Author :
