Review:

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.
