Join renowned Jungian Analyst, James Hollis, Ph.D., for a conversation on the themes of his new book Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times. There will be opportunities for Q&A.

Living Between Worlds:

What guides us when our world is changing? Discover the path to deeper meaning and purpose through depth psychology.

What makes the challenges of our time so unique and daunting in human history?
Technology? Resource depletion? In Living Between Worlds, Dr. James Hollis challenges us to look within for the real cause. "Few of our ancestors, if any, became enemies of themselves as we do; few split themselves off from their internal forms of guidance," he explains. "We can serve the drives for power, wealth, status, whatever, but we cannot create meaning. Meaning is a by-product of being in right relationship to our soul."

Dr. Hollis's readers know him as a penetrating thinker who brings profound insight and sophistication to the inner journey. In Living Between Worlds, he broadens his lens to encompass the relationship between our inner struggles and the rapidly shifting realities of modern human existence. This is not a journey that will yield easy answers or pat reassurances. Yet by invoking the guidance of depth psychology, classical literature, philosophy, and myth, you will gain access to resources of purpose, courage, and hope that transcend time and circumstance. "We will always live in in-between times," Hollis teaches. "Perhaps we may drop our plumb line into those same guiding currents which ran through the souls of the ancients . . . and run through ours as well."
