In all major cultures and traditions the personal experience of becoming whole is thought to be a spiritual one. Starting with this knowledge, Carl Jung - one of the world's most famous psychologists - sought to understand how this came to be part of the human experience and what causes it. Eventually he created his equation for the realization of God, which has often been forgotten about. The author of Becoming Whole, Leslie Stein, - a psychologist herself - wanted to more closely examine Jung's equation, and has in this audiobook. Performer Cris Dukehart narrates, and his pleasant voice is exactly suited for this academic work.

A thrilling exploration of how Carl Jung found the equation for realizing the divine through personal consciousness.
In 1951, Carl Jung published what he considered the highest synthesis and exposition of the transformation of Self and the discovery of the divine in one of his latest and most difficult works, Aion. The equation’s complexity and uncharacteristic elements of mysticism have caused it to fall by the wayside in traditional Jungian and psychological analysis. No major work has tackled this fascinating concept until now.
Leslie Stein, a disciple of noted Jungian analyst Rix Weaver, here explores this groundbreaking equation to its fullest capacity. Tracing the roots of Jung’s research back to his influences in the world of the Kabbalah and Sufi mysticism, and grounding the more esoteric philosophy toward the modern sense of identity, Stein has produced both a rigorous work of scholarship on a major figure and a guide that challenges listeners to reflect on our own truths.

Jung - Brilliant as Always, but Advanced

As a student of Jung's writing and approach, this book is indispensable, but its complexity requires a hard copy as well, as another reviewer pointed out. There are perhaps some Jungian scholars who could do with just this Audible version, but even they would want a hard copy as well I would think.

I am happy to have this Audible version as well as the Kindle version because the book contains so much that deep study is warranted.

The narrator is definitely an acquired taste. She sounds like a female Stephen Hawking after three or more generations of speech generation development. It's a remarkable, if slightly creepy voice for this book. The book's dry nature of important, Jungian depth psychology concepts could use more emotion. And the "young" pronunciation of Jung should never have happened. Don't the narrators have a director who would correct that?

Mispronunciation of names is terrible

What disappointed you about Becoming Whole?

The narrator.

What didn’t you like about Cris Dukehart’s performance?

The narrator's mispronunciation of both Jung's and Ibn 'Arabi's names drove me nuts. I quit listening and bought the printed book.

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth reading by those doing individuation and students of Jung and mystical traditions like Sufism.
