Person-centred Inquiry into the Spiritual and the Subtle
This book breaks new ground in transpersonal pscyhology. It argues for a people-based, person-centred religion which hold that spiritual authority is wihtin each individual, and that spiritual initiation is a path of lived inquiry, for which all traditional systems are a secondary resource. Sacred Science will be of interest to all those who believe in the emergence of the self-determining human spirit within the field of religious belief and practice. It is written for the general reader, yet specialists in transpersonal studies will find that it addresses critical issues at a sophisticated level.

What Reviewers Are Saying
I think that anyone who is interested in the spiritual dimension would find that John Heron explores so much of relevance, from the more orthodox and authoritarian religions, to the exploration of issues involved in 'do-it-yourself' subtle psychical research. He evidences the possibility of generating joyful, spiritual culture which affirms each individual's spiritual presence and authority, without projecting onto teachers and traditions. Betty Gould, Self and Society, Vol. 27, No. 5, November 1999. Heron invites us to navigate our own idiosyncratic way through his book. I read the inquiry reports in order to fill out the theory and interrupt the density of the first section. This book is not an easy read, both in terms of style and content. Much of what Heron says resonated strongly with me and to a large extent describes how I go about my own spiritual life. However, I also experienced a particular form of brain ache that tells me that my received and unquestioned assumptions are being profoundly challenged.
