Dr. James Hollis Lecture: Living More Fully in the Shadow of Mortality

Carl Jung observed that, “Life is a short pause between two great mysteries.” That fact is not in dispute; what matters, then, is how we live that pause. E. M. Forster observed that the two who could most illumine us, the corpse and the baby, are not talking. Given that mortality frames our journey, how might we live it more fully, not defined by fear, morbidity and denial? What attitudes and practices allow 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 with a practice in Washington, D. C., where he also is Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington. Dr. Hollis is the author of 14 books including: The Eden Project: In Search of the Magical Other, Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life, Why Good People Do Bad Things, What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life, and Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives. He also has a new book forthcoming in 2018 titled The Examined Life.

The C.G. Jung Society of Sarasota is a nonprofit organization established in 1994 to encourage personal growth and raise the consciousness of individuals of all ages. The Society’s lectures, workshops and small group meetings are inspired by the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961), whose theories on archetypes, synchronicity and the collective unconscious have profoundly influenced how society understands and relates to the arts and cultural disciplines, as well as providing a widely accepted framework for individual exploration of the human psyche.
