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. 


This program is partially underwritten by the generosity of Dr. Erminia Scarcella. Our thanks to her!

OUR MISSION

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.
