Women have courageously examined their roles and the limitations placed upon their souls. Men similarly need to examine the presuppositions and limitations that govern their lives and make them a dangerous, and endangered, species. This program will explore the range of male definitions, the often unconscious relationship to mother and father, and the role that fear plays in men's lives. Only a frank discussion of these secrets breaks the conspiracy of silence that estranges them not only from women but even more from themselves. (This program is as much for women as it is for men). CEs will be offered.

James Hollis, Ph.D., is a Jungian Analyst in private practice in Washington, D.C., executive director of the Jung Society of Washington, and author of fourteen books.


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
Images of mandalas throughout this site were created by Carl Jung's patients between the years 1926 and 1945.
