Lecture

James Hollis

Jung observed that “life is a short pause between two mysteries.”   That fact is not in debate; what does matter, then, is how we live that short pause. And E. M. Forster observed that both the corpse and the newborn might speak of those mysteries, but neither one is talking. Given that mortality frames our brief journey, how can we live more fully in its presence without being defined by morbidity, fear, and denial? What are the attitudes and practices which enable us to live more fully? And what psychological maturation brings us to experience this short pause as rich with meaning?


James Hollis, Ph. D., is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in practice in Washington, D. C. where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington.    He is also author of fourteen books translated into nineteen languages.

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.
