Overview

Journey into Depth is about the experience of initiation as it plays itself out in two domains-the monastic and the training to become a Jungian psychoanalyst. The very disparateness of these fields, from an external point of view, highlights the deeper level of similarity in their initiatory experiences.

Sister Mary Wolff-Salin is a Jungian psychoanalyst who has published two previous books on connections between Jungian thought and spirituality or community life.
