Just how free are we anyhow?  Despite the growing evidence of genetic tendencies, neurological programs, and social influences, all religious, political, ethical systems hold us accountable for how we live our lives and the consequences that flow therefrom. This course will explore a range of topics from the many influences that work on our lives to the attitudes and practices that we may adopt for a life of accountability, dignity, and perhaps even freedom.

Reading: James Hollis, Creating a Life: Finding Your Individual Path (available on Amazon, or on order from your local bookseller).

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 fifteen other 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.
