Overview

This book is about the individual's journey to psychological wholeness, known in analytical psychology as the process of individuation. Edward Edinger traces the stages in this process and relates them to the search for meaning through encounters with symbolism in religion, myth, dreams, and art. For contemporary men and women, Edinger believes, the encounter with the self is equivalent to the discovery of God. The result of the dialogue between the ego and the archetypal image of God is an experience that dramatically changes the individual's worldview and makes possible a new and more meaningful way of life.

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.
