9780874778717: The Search for the Beloved: Journeys in Mythology and Sacred Psychology

The Search for the Beloved, one of the most important books written on the creative and inventive mind, explains the theories that helped form the foundation of the human potential movement. In what has been called “an intellectual and spiritual feast,” Jean Houston explores the nature of spiritual yearning and teaches readers how to facilitate a personal quest by focusing on the four aspects of Sacred Psychology—the Great Wound, the Mythic Journey of Transformation, the Discovery of the Larger Story, and the Union with the Beloved of the Soul.

W. B. Yeats wrote, “There is but one history and that is the soul’s.” It is this great known and unknowable homeland of the human spirit that The Search for the Beloved tours.  In an itinerary that leads readers to the sacred sites of the soul, Dr. Houston’s classic book is a passport for those who yearn to attune their spirits with psychological depths and spiritual heights. Probing our tragic dimensions for their deeper, more mythic meanings, so that our wounds can become the sources of spiritual grace, this book will guide readers to a larger and more sacred dimension of life. Includes a new foreword by the author.

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.

About the Author:

Jean Houston, PhD, a pioneer in human development, internationally renowned lecturer, scholar, and philosopher, and past president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, has conducted seminars and worked in human development in more than 35 countries. She is the director of the Foundation for Mind Research in New York and the author of more than 16 books, including an autobiography, A Mythic Life.
