Today as never before psychology and spirituality are coming together to offer people new ways to discover how to lead meaningful, interesting, and joyful lives. One of the nation’s most distinguished voices in this emerging field is James Hollis, a Jungian analyst who has steeped himself in the works of the renowned psychological pioneer C. G. Jung, the world’s most enduring literature, and deep reflections on his own life, to offer this e-course, Creating Your Life.
A graduate of the esteemed C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, Hollis teaches at the Jung Center of Houston and is a Saybrook University faculty member and founder of the Jungian Studies program there. His many books include the bestselling What Matters Most and Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life.
With more than 30 years of practice as a Jungian psychoanalyst in which he has dealt with nearly every human predicament under the sun, Hollis has found that the one thing that people lack most — and need most — is a life with meaning. A life with meaning is a life that makes sense to you, that gives you genuine feelings of satisfaction, depth, and worth.
In this exclusive e-course, Hollis will help you move toward a sense of purpose. Each email includes a combination of timeless wisdom and contemporary insights to help you cope with — and learn from — upsetting changes, job loss or dissatisfaction, challenges in your relationships, feeling weighed down by too many responsibilities, midlife and aging, and emotional difficulties that are making you feel like you don’t know where to turn next — but you know you need to turn somewhere.
According to the tenets of the Jungian approach to health and wholeness, when you directly face life’s most difficult challenges, you reap life’s greatest rewards: A life with meaning, a life that you can genuinely call your own. "We are not here to imitate those who have gone before, for that was their life, someone else’s journey," Hollis notes. "We are here to figure out and serve what life asks of us."
This retreat consists of:
• 12 emails with reflections by James Hollis on the many ways we can create a life with meaning.
• Suggested practices to help you bring a new level of awareness and creativity into your daily life.
• Audio clips for each lesson in which James shares wisdom based on some of his own experiences.
