Living More Fully in the Shadow of Mortality
Jung observed that “Life is a short pause between two great mysteries.” That fact is not in dispute; what matters then, is how we live that pause. E. M. Forster observed that the two who could most illumine us, the corpse and the baby, are not talking. Given that mortality frames our journey, how might we live it more fully, not defined by fear, morbidity, and denial? What attitudes and practices allow us to live more fully? And what psychological maturation bring us to experience this short pause as rich with meaning?

Living the Examined Life: The Unfinished Business of the Second Half of the Journey
9:00 am to 1:00 pm
Tiny, dependent, and at the mercy of the world around us, we all have to adapt, adjust, bury, deny, split-off and repress, and thereby lose contact with our own sovereignty and natural source of guidance. The core project of the second half of life is the recovery of that source. This program/workshop will focus on twenty-one steps we may take toward the recovery of our personal journey.
James Hollis, Ph.D., is a Zurich trained Jungian Analyst with a practice in Washington, D.C. where he also is Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington and author of fifteen books translated into nineteen languages, the latest titled Living an Examined Life.
