James Hollis

Four important life topics- with James Hollis

Jung Platform and South African Association of Jungian Analysts present:

A course on four important life topics

with Jungian Analysts James Hollis.

 

Each class is 60 minutes + 30 minutes bonus discussion between Hollis and the Cape Town participants.

COURSE OUTLINE:

Class 1: On the Psychology of Men.

Women have courageously examined their roles and the limitations placed upon their souls.  Men similarly need to examine the presuppositions and limitations which govern their lives.   This program will explore the range of male definitions, the often unconscious relationship to mother and father, and the role which fear plays in mens lives.   Only a frank discussion of these secrets breaks the conspiracy of silence which estranges them not only from women but even more from themselves. (This program is as much for women as it is for men).

Class 2: On The Psychology of the Second Half of Life.

Finding meaning in the second half of life requires asking larger questions of ourselves, and challenging our values.  To ask these questions three things are requisite:  that we recover a sense of personal authority, that we strike a better balance between obligation to others and obligation to self, and that we construct a more mature spirituality. How do we recover our lives, grow as persons, and become increasingly at home with the person we are becoming?

Class 3: On the Psychodynamics of Relationships.

No theme seems more to preoccupy us than the desire for relationship, yet everywhere we see broken relationships. Why?   Is it that relationships are too important, but how could that be? The relationship between self and Other carries always the imprint of first relationships.  In any present relationship we are inevitably enmeshed in the psychological mechanisms of projection and transference of our earliest images of self and Other. This lecture will explore our projection/transference dynamics, the desire to merge with the other which our hidden agenda embodies, and the search for the Magical Other.

Class 4: The Personal Myth in Turbulent Times.

Just over a century ago, Jung asked himself, “What is my myth?” He concluded he could not answer that question, and thus launched a sustained effort to address the matter. Can we answer it? In order to begin, we first have to understand what is meant by myth. Then, we need to consider what the question itself means. Why we even have to ask this question is yet another question. What is the cultural context in which we raise these questions? How do our personal journeys intersect with the climate of our time?  How does one go about the construction of, or the identification of the “personal myth,” and how does that very personal work affect our relationship to others?

James Hollis – The Psychospiritual Dilemma of Our Time

Topic: What are the sources of guidance for a thoughtful person in our country amid political fractionation, animosity, divisive ideologies, and numbing distractions – a time in which the individual has an enormous summons to social, psychological, and spiritual integrity? This presentation will challenge the audience to assume responsibility for a thoughtful, discerned, and experientially verified authority, one which bases itself on respect for others, but also embodies a willingness to show up, to be different, to stand
for something real. Please bring a notebook and pen for your own personal reflection.

Hauntings – with James Hollis

This 4 class course is about dealing with hauntings of invisible (metaphorical) ghosts that (may) direct our daily lives. Hauntings can be seen as obstacles in the way of finding one’s path in life, but hauntings can also be approached from a depth psychological perspective and be seen as a call for individuation.

James Hollis sees hauntings as an invitation to rise above the ghost that is haunting you and as an opportunity to get unstuck and move forward to a life closer to your soul and (re)connect with the meaning of your life.

We all live to a certain extent in service to the past and to values of our family of origin. Also can we be seized by the effect of untold stories, by emotions like shame or guilt, by disappointments and the sense of betrayal when our expectations are not met, and/or by complexes or experiences in previous relationships. Those conscious and unconscious dynamics can haunt us, until we are forced to face our pain and fear, and the path of healing becomes clear.

In this Jung Platform course James Hollis will help participants to become more authentic and connected to their souls by driving out the invisible energies that hold us back in our development. One needs to engage with life’s mysteries, because from such engagements a more considered life may come.
