Description

Have you ever looked at your career, your relationships, or your role in life and wondered, “Is this why I’m really here?” If so, then you are ready for your “midlife crisis”—the pivotal time when you have the opportunity to become the person your soul seeks to be.

“When the illusions of our youth begin to crumble,” explains James Hollis, “we reach a turning point that the poet Dante called the ‘dark wood.’” With Through the Dark Wood, this author and Jungian analyst reveals the steps we all must take on our road to true maturity, meaning, and fulfillment.

When the Second Half of Life Begins

How do you know when you’ve reached the “second half ”of life? According to Hollis, the first sign comes when you feel dissatisfied by where you are today—and hear a call from within to live a more purposeful life. This marks the collision between your “False Self,” created from the expectations of others, and your instinctive “True Self.”

Drawing upon his experiences with hundreds of clients, Hollis provides an essential map for traversing the universal challenges of midlife, such as building genuine relationships, cultivating a mature spirituality, and letting go of old beliefs that no longer serve you.

An Invaluable Guide through the Challenges of Midlife

“The second half of life isn’t about looking for easy answers,” James Hollis says. “It’s about honestly exploring the questions that bring richness and value to your life.” With Through the Dark Wood, this penetrating thinker shares a lifetime of insights about how to navigate your life’s most turbulent passages—and emerge from the darkness wiser, stronger, and in greater harmony with your soul’s purpose.

Really enjoy his interpretation of Jungian concepts. His voice is calming and engaging. The content is stimulating and Hollis comes across as wise yet humble. Would recommend to a friend.

I enjoyed this program very much. The presenter, Ian Hollis, spoke from his considerable professional expertise but also from his experience as a human being who has experienced both the joys and tragedies of life and has managed to weave them into a profound philosophy with which to meet the second half of life.

In-depth overview; sounds like oxymoron but isn't.
Hollis uses Jungian archetypal material, myth and symbol to create understandable explanation of the major life shift from outer reality to inner reality.
High on my list of support material in search of living a more fully conscious life.
