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