Join renowned Jungian analyst James Hollis, PhD, for a deep conversation on the qualities that bring meaning to our human journey, and his new book A Life of Meaning.
What is it that brings meaning to your life? Our culture tells us to seek wealth, power, prestige, or even enrollment in someone else’s idea of a worthy cause―yet where do we turn when these paths fail to fulfill our need for purpose? “When the old stories and beliefs that once defined us have played out and grown exhausted,” teaches Dr. James Hollis, “our task is to access our inner compass, the promptings of the psyche that help us find our way through the complex thickets of choice.” A Life of Meaning is a profound exploration of the nature of meaning and how we can orient toward it or away from it with the choices we make. Hollis offers an examination of myth, literature, historical figures, and the wisdom of depth psychology that provides penetrating insight into the search for purpose.
“Hollis speaks to and teaches from the heart. A combination of genuine vision and genuine humanity is a rare and valuable gift.”
