James Hollis

Mythologems are archetypal ideas, motifs, energies.  We will explore how these organizing patterns such as “the child,” “the parent,” “the hero task” operate in our lives.   Additionally, we will discuss the psychopathology of everyday life, archetypal understandings of “the gods,” and the elements of the “personal myth.”

Reading: James Hollis, Mythologems: Incarnations of the Invisible World. Toronto: Inner City Books, 2004.

James Hollis, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington, a Jungian analyst in private practice, 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.
