Wandering between two worlds, one dead, 

         The other powerless to be born …                       

                                        –Matthew Arnold, 1885

 

As individuals, we often find ourselves in in-between times, between a world we knew, and a world that has not yet emerged. These times are hours of crisis, disorientation, loss, and enormous anxiety. Similarly cultures, eras, civilizations go through in-between times. Ours is such a moment in history. How can we recover our bearings, sustain dignity and integrity when things fall apart? What abides amid such discontinuity? Together we will reflect on what we may do to recover a sense of personal autonomy when our roadmap whirls from our grasp and leaves us confounded.

James Hollis’s mythopoetic depth psychology approach offers an intriguing entry into the personal, clinical and social patterns of experience which surround the therapeutic encounter and offers theoretical perspectives that can extend, invigorate and enrich our professional and personal understanding of therapeutic  functioning.

    This half-day workshop will explore how depth psychology differs from other modalities and consider how its premises and methods are of use to all of us, whether psycho-dynamically oriented or not. This seminar will explore the mythopoetic or “myth-creating” aspect of the psyche, through the lenses of the following three interpretive principles:

“It’s not about what it’s about.”

“What you see is a compensation for what you don’t see.”

It’s all metaphor.”

James Hollis is a licensed psychologist and Jungian analyst who maintains a private practice in Washington, D.C.; he is currently the director of the Jung Society of Washington.

He is a retired Senior Training Analyst for the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts, and he continues to teach as a Professor of Jungian Studies for the graduate program of Saybrook University. Dr. Hollis is the author of fifteen books that have been translated into sixteen languages. His latest book is entitled Living the Examined LifeWisdom for the Second Half of the Journey(Sounds True; 2018)
