It’s difficult to adequately convey the depth and breadth of Jeremy Sherr’s Neon. Second in his Noble Gas Series of books, Neon was actually the first noble gas proving, and he begins the book recounting his initial doubts about whether it could be proven at all. Of course, his doubts were dispelled on many levels–including the mysterious dumping of neon lights into a prover’s front yard–and eventually led to the writing of this book.
Sherr provides a glimpse into how the writing unfolds in his first chapter “The Potencies of Perception.” He describes a progression from lower potencies, including material source and mother tincture, to higher potencies including MM, as reflective of multi-dimensional perceptions of source substance energies. Each of the ensuing chapters in Neon move sequentially into ever-deeper levels of being, from gross physical realms to the most subtle sources of existence.
There’s a great deal of theoretical information in the book that provides context for the profound nature of the proving. Although Sherr suggests to readers they can breeze over material they don’t find helpful, his informed ideas about Neon complement the invaluable and grounded information found in Chapter 12’s sixteen cured cases.
In this reviewer’s opinion, if this book was simply comprised of Chapter 12, it would still be worth the entire price. But general and specific proving experiences are woven throughout, stretching our understanding and perception of Neon’s energies, and Sherr uses information from the Helium proving to further articulate Neon’s indications in homeopathic practice.
By the end of the book there’s a sense of awe at what Jeremy Sherr has been able to convey. Neon helps us recognize how this elemental remedy–and by extension all remedies–provides a doorway into an endless universe. The noble gases may be the most paradoxical of all remedies, but Sherr manages to reconcile the opposites in this beautiful exposition of the being-ness of Neon.
