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.

Taking Your Life Back: Steps to the Recovery of a Personal Journey

Tiny, dependent, and at the mercy of the world around us, we all have to adapt, adjust, bury, deny, split-off and repress, and thereby lose contact with our own sovereignty and natural source of guidance.   The core project of the second half of life is the recovery of that source.   This program/workshop will focus on twenty-one steps we may take toward the recovery of our personal journey.  More details.
