What can support us through the unique and daunting challenges of our times?

Full Description

What guides us when our world is changing? Discover the path to deeper meaning and purpose through depth psychology and classical thought. 

How did we get to this crossroads in history? And will we make it through—individually and as a species?

"We all assumed that learning, rationality, and good intentions would prove enough to bring us to the promised land,"says James Hollis. "But they haven't and won't. Yet what we also do not recognize sufficiently is that this human animal is equipped for survival.

Dr. Hollis's readers know him as a penetrating thinker who brings profound insight and sophistication to the inner journey. In Living Between Worlds, he broadens his lens to encompass the relationship between our inner struggles and the rapidly shifting realities of modern human existence. You will learn to invoke the tools of depth psychology, classical literature, philosophy, dream work, and myth to gain access to the resources that supported our ancestors through their darkest hours. Through these paths of inner exploration, you will access your "locus of knowing—a wellspring of deep resilience beyond the ego, always available to guide you back to the imperatives of your soul.

Though many of the challenges of our times are unique, the path through for us, personally and collectively, will always rely on our measureless capacity for creativity, wisdom, and connection to a reality larger than ourselves. Here you will find no easy answers or pat reassurances. Yet within the pages of Living Between Worlds, you will encounter causes for hope. "We can find what supports us when nothing supports us, "Hollis teaches. "By bearing the unbearable, we go through the desert to arrive at a nurturing oasis we did not know was there.
