"On This Journey We Call Our Life - Living the Questions (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts) is one of the 4 books by Hollis I own which include a superb audio book on CD he cogently narrates titled "The Middle Passage - From Misery to Meaning in Midlife". On This Journey... was published in 2003 and is his third latest book - his most recent being "Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life - How to Finally, Really Grow Up".

The Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts is a wonderful series published by Inner City Books with Daryl Sharp as founder and chief editor (himself an accomplished Jungian Analyst and writer). Marie-Louise von Franz is their Honorary Patron with 9 of her classic titles in the offerings. The publisher's charter was "...founded in 1980 to promote the understanding and practical application of the work of C.G. Jung." Since then they've published over 110 titles in this series with other prolific Jungian writers & analysts such as Barbara Hannah, Edward Edinger, and Marion Woodman to name a few. Hollis is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst practicing out of Texas where he is also the Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston. He's contributed 8 titles to the Studies in Jungian Psychology series himself. We recently shared some correspondence and I found him warm and thoughtfully responsive.

After a nice Publisher's Forward by Daryl Sharp, Hollis tells us early in his introduction "One way of looking at this journey is to observe that psyche presents us with two large questions..." one for each of the two halves of our lives. The question of the first half is '"What is the world asking of me?" and that of the second is "What, now, does the soul; ask of me?

James Hollis accomplished MASTERFULLY what he set out to do. He simplifies and illustrates clearly how...in Jungian terms...we repeat our patterns of behavior, endlessly, until we examine, recognize and work at changing them.

I especially appreciated the questions and tools he presented to aid the reader in the process of making new choices. He presumes some knowledge of Jung and his language can be a bit pretentious at times, but overall, I found this to be a deeply valuable and useful book.

Wow, this guy is an amazing writer and thinker and translator of Jungian concepts. I read THE MIDDLE PASSAGE and then started reading ALL of his books. His words give meaning to the journey, that's for sure. Highly recommended!

This book was brought to my attention by a good friend who happens to be a Jungian analyst. As part of a group I studied both it and another work of Hollis' titled Under Saturn's Shadow. Undoubtedly this book is well worth a serious read, since it does contain much wisdom and food for thought. I especially enjoyed the chapter "What Fiction Shall Be My Truth?" since it dealt with specific issues that concerned me at the time. Hollis goes were other authors sometimes fear to tread (his examination of death for instance) and in that regard he is very stimulating. I must agree however with another reviewer's comments about Hollis' occasional verbosity and pedantic tone. While he states that no one should allow Jung to direct their life he often seems to elevate Jung to the level of a high priest of sorts and attributes as fact some of Jung's assertions, when in truth they are merely speculation (albeit of a high order). His references to the "Divine" are a bit over wrought and seem to insist that the reader accept his concepts in this regard without question. I found this peculiar tendency to be a bit much since Hollis' tone in these passages would seem to intentionally denigrate the reader who might hold opinions that differ from his own. And, after all, any discussion of this subject matter is only opinion. Certainly Hollis is no vessel of universal truth; even if he occasionally gives the impression that he might imagine himself as such. But, these criticisms aside, Hollis' main message is one that I believe needs to gain traction in our society: examine your life and take responsibility for what you find. Grow. Seek truth. Expand your horizons. Be a better person and think about your effect on others and your role in the larger scheme (assuming there is one).Read more ›

Dr. Ira Progoff, creator of the Intensive Journal and author of Jung's Society and Its Social Meaning (his dissertation), Death and Rebirth of Psychology, Depth Psychology and Modern Man and The Symbolic and the Real wrote in one of his books that in the end all of the great four (Jung, Freud, Adler and Rank) came to recognize that there was an untapped spiritual dimension to their work, which had, after all, taken over the healing role of clergy and the church. That exchange has left a lot to be desired, especially in the consciously focused schools of Cognitive and Behavioral Psychotherapy.
James Hollis in this work reunites the two (replacing religion with its broader cousin philosophy) by asking the most important questions we can pursue in life. He does not provide answers but his wonderful exploration of the questions acts a guide for our own individual search of the one and only life we will ever have.
When I read Hollis, I have my journal open to explore what he puts in front of me. Life seems a bit more understandable and complete with his prompting. He, after all, must deal whith the same tough questions.
This is not a self help book, nor one you read in a single sitting. It is more respectful on your intelligence and journey.

John Laughlin, author of Reading Thomas Merton
