In the war letters Dion Fortune makes three statements:
1. “It is the aim of both psychotherapy and initiation to bring about harmonisation between consciousness and sub-consciousness. Both methods of dealing with the human mind depend for their results on the same factor- the resources made available to the personality when this unification takes place. Initiation differs from psychoanalysis in that it carries the process a stage further and unites subconsciousness with cosmic consciousness; save for this, the two methods have more in common than either of them realises.”
2. “The powers of the macrocosm can only function in the world of men through the medium of men’s souls…through them the cosmic powers work.”
3. It is necessary to have a working knowledge of both psychology and the mysteries.
