James Hollis

From the age of revolution onward, a current of protest against stultifying powers, ideas and institutions, a hunger for intensity of feeling and subjective experience over received authority and rational systems, and a desperate effort to hold fast to nature before the age of mechanization prevailed, characterizes a movement called “romanticism.”   While this “movement” begat many forms in many nations, we will focus on only four of its progenitors in England—Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, Keats--at the beginning of that world so recognizably becoming our own.

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.
