James Hollis: Entering the Second Half of Life
We tend to fear the idea of a midlife crisis as the time when we have to give up the vigor of youth. However, Dr. James Hollis teaches that what we give up when we enter the second half of life is actually our false identity. When recording the audio course Through the Dark Wood, Sounds True producer Randy Roark was struck by Dr. Hollis’ revelation that this shift can happen at any point in our lives when we reject the identity imposed on us by our families, peers, and culture. In this audio excerpt, Dr. Hollis talks about the fundamental questions that emerge when the cracks begin to appear in our old identity—and we begin to question who we are, what we want, and the deeper meaning of the journey of our life.
