Betwixt & Between
Patterns of Masculine and Feminine Initiation

Edited by Louise Carus Mahdi, with Steven Foster and Meredith Little

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.

"A watershed book . . . an interdisciplinary array of essays highlights both the need for, and importance of, rites of passage to mark important transitions in our lives." —Thresholds
