Dr. James Hollis via Skype, on Living An Examined Life
"The unexamined life is not worth living." Socrates
Lecture and Discussion. A consequence of the necessary adaptations we make to the demands of family, the world around us, and the imbedded messages we carry, causes each of us to get separated from our own truth, our personal authority. Initially accountable to the world around us, we adapt, repress, leave behind some of our best parts. The second half of life is an on-going summons to an accountability to the soul. This presentation will identify some of the issues, and the tasks they raise for us, in living an examined life.
James Hollis, Ph.D. is a Jungian Analyst in Washington, DC, and author of sixteen books, the latest being: Living an Examined Life: Wisdom for the Second Half of the Journey and the forthcoming Living Between Worlds. (2020)
