Basing his study on Jung’s archetypal theory–especially that of initiation–Thresholds of Initiation represents thirty years of testing the theory in analytical practice. Joseph Henderson considers archetypes to be predictable patterns of inner conditioning that lead to certain essential changes and shows the parallels between individual psychological self-development and the rites that marked initiation in the past.

Dr. Henderson’s topics include the uninitiated; return of the mother; remaking a man; trial by strength; the rite of vision; thresholds of initiation; initiation and the principle of ego-development in adolescence; and initiation in the process of individuation.

This is essential reading for an understanding of the universal nature of initiation, especially as it relates traditional initiatory practices to Jung’s theory of archetypes.

About the Author:

Joseph L. Henderson, M.D., began his analysis with C.G. Jung in 1929 and continued to work with Jung until 1938, when he completed his medical training at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London. In 1941, he moved to San Francisco and began his psychiatric and analytic practice. Dr. Henderson was one of the founders of the Society of Jungian Analysts of Northern California (1950), and for the past 53 years he has been an important teacher and training analyst to several generations of analysts.

Review:

“In Dr. Henderson’s view, ‘initiation’ is a term properly applied to the process by which a youth graduates from childhood to manhood, but it also means the transition from socially acceptable manhood to the maturity of “individuation.”... Following Jung’s lead, he has discerned in the lore of Greek myth and the practices of tribal societies a general scheme of successive initiations.” ―Manas

“Henderson’s careful, scholarly approach is displayed to good effect in this wide-ranging volume, which bears the stamp of his authority and contains the support of long experience. He develops the provocative theory that there is an archetype of initiation and has assembled comparative material brought into relation with dreams from patients to expound its implications.” ―Journal of Analytical Psychology
