ARCHETYPAL PRESENCES: The Forms Rolling Beneath the Surfaces of Our Lives, a lecture with James Hollis

  • Friday, December 11, 2020
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Zoom, Eastern Time
  • 31



Jung approached the reality of the psyche with reverence because he believed that we do not create our thoughts and forms of expression any more than if we created animals in the forest. They create us. The role of the ego, then, is to observe, respect, and dialogue with those intra-psychic “others” while holding fast to the maintenance of conscious life. This presentation will explore the forms which roll beneath the surface of our lives, and why our dialogue with them lifts us out of the mere surface features of our brief journey.

James Hollis, Ph.D. is a Jungian Analyst in practice in Washington, DC and author of sixteen books, the latest being Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times.

Program registration closes on Thursday, December 10th, at noon Eastern Time.
