A study of the journey to psychological wholeness--a process that Jung described as a conscious encounter between the ego and the archetypal symbols of the collective unconscious. For contemporary people, Edinger asserts, this encounter is equivalent to the discovery of God--and a critically important experience for everyone. 68 halftones.
The etymolgy of the word 're-ligion' is 're' meaning 'again' and 'ligament' meaning 'attachment' (just as ligament adheres to bone). Jungian scholar Marion Woodman says that life is a series of births, and in the same light, Edinger shares that we earn our own individuation and our own autonomy. For example, when we disagree with a commonly held point of view and posit our own, we take a step closer to our unique energy within. Just as we were first attached to our mother's womb, now, by tolerating the discomfort associated with becoming our truest selves, we re-attach to the spiritual flesh of our own best selves. I felt very encouraged while reading this book.

I first read Edinger's work on individuation in the late 70s it's a classic I return to regularly for insight along the lifelong path to wholeness.
