Betwixt & Between: Patterns of Masculine and Feminine Initiation

Front Cover
Louise Carus Mahdi, Steven Foster, Meredith Little
Open Court Publishing, 1987 - 498 pages
Betwixt and Between offers new insights into the basic elements of initiations and rites of passage. The absence of these traditional supports creates problems in the lives of those who are caught in the void and lack definite expectations at various times of their lives. The chapters on masculine and feminine initiation provide new and creative concepts and practical possibilities for each of us. Initiation has been a missing component in the modern world and needs to be re-introduced with new understanding and consciousness.
