Required Text: What Matters Most by James Hollis
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.
– C. G. Jung
Please join us for Jungian focused discussions about books, mythology, and fairy tales. Together we can explore the stories that, throughout time, give us important clues on how to live our lives more fully.
We will begin by reading What Matters Most by James Hollis. Taking a fresh look at the concept of happiness, Hollis uses a warm, accessible tone to encourage readers to learn to tolerate ambiguity, embrace growth rather than security, respect the power of Eros, engage spiritual crises, and acknowledge the shadow of mortality.
James Hollis, Ph.D., is a Jungian analyst in private practice and executive director of the Jung Society of Washington. Educated at Manchester College, Drew University, and the Jung Institute in Zurich, he was a humanities professor for more than twenty years and is the author of fifteen books, including the best selling The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning at Midlife and The Eden Project: In Search of the Magical Other. Based in Washington, D.C., he lectures frequently throughout the country and worldwide, and has spoken at the Maine Jung Center numerous times.
Jennifer Morris’s Jungian experience started with seven years of personal work with a remarkable Colorado analyst, Katherine Kuisle, Ph.D. This experience profoundly changed Jennifer’s life, opening her heart to the guiding symbology around us and within us. She grew up in Yarmouth and lived in Maine for 40 years before moving to Colorado where she lived—when not working as a physician assistant in Alaska or adventuring on a sailboat in the Bahamas—for 23 years. Now retired, she and the cat are quite settled in South Portland, surrounded by her gardens.
