James Hollis

Toward the end of his life, Jung was pressured to write his autobiography, which he declined to do; however, he did agree to speak aloud his recollections, which were in turn recorded and edited by his secretary Aniela Jaffe. In this memoir, Jung speaks of his formative experiences in childhood, his encounters with Freud, his mid-life turbulence, his travels, and his late thoughts on time, death, and immortality. Because it is more an unfolding of his inner life and its development than a recitation of outer events, at the millennium, TIME Magazine identified MDR as one of the great works of the spirit for the entire twentieth century.

            This course will offer a chance to get an overview of Jung’s life and contributions as well as provide a forum for an interactive exchange between instructor and class.

Required reading: C.G. Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections

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.
