In Search of the Magical Other (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysis, 79)
A timely and thought-provoking corrective to the generalized fantasies about relationships that permeate Western culture. This is not a practical guide on how to fix a relationship, but rather a challenge to greater personal responsibility, a call for individual growth as opposed to the fantasy of rescue through others.

The Self in Relationships : Essays (The Paja Papers)
In these essays, five eminent Jungian analysts explore the implications of this individuation process from different perspectives, drawing on their intensive knowledge of Jung's thought and the experiences of their clients in analysis. Also included, as an illustration of the individuation process, is the entire Indian folk tale "The King and the Corpse" as told by Heinrich Zimmer as well as an interpretation of the popular musical "Phantom of the Opera".
|Swamplands of the Soul|
New Life in Dismal Places (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts)
Life is a constant and cascading series of struggles large and small with the vicissitudes and setbacks of life. States of happiness and contentment are ephemeral and under constant erosion by states of guilt, grief, betrayal, doubt, depression, deprivation, anger, terror, and change. Swamplands Of The Soul: New Life In Dismal Places presents the Jungian perspective: By encompassing both the meadow and the bog, the goal of life is not happiness but meaning. And meaning, though it may not be all sunlight and blossoms, is nonetheless real. Swamplands Of The Soul explores the quicksands where we have all been entrapped from time to time. Swamplands Of The Soul lights a beacon by showing what these "quicksands" mean in terms of our individual journey through life and the engendering of soul. For as James Hollis maintains, it is precisely where we encounter the "gravitas" of life that we also uncover its purpose, its dignity and its deepest meaning. Thoughtful and reflective reading.

|The Middle Passage|
From Misery to Meaning in Midlife (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts, No 59)
Why do so many go through so much disruption in their middle years? Why then? Why do we consider it to be a crisis? What does this pattern mean and how can we survive it? The Middle Passage shows how we may pass through midlife consciously, rendering our lives more meaningful and the second half of life immeasurably richer.
|Tracking the Gods|
The Place of Myth in Modern Life (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts, No 68)
Myth takes us deep into the psychic reservoirs of humanity. Whatever our cultural and religious background or personal psychology, a greater intimacy with myth provides a vital link with meaning, the absence of which is so often behind the private and collective neuroses of our time. Just as today's anthropologists seek to reconstruct the sensibility of previous cultures, so future generations will seek to understand the kind of world we have made for ourselves. They will ask the same questions of us that we ask of the past, and we can ill afford to be less conscious of our values than those who one day will sift through our bones. Tracking the Gods explains why a connection with our mythic roots is crucial for us as individuals and as responsible citizens of our age. James Hollis is the acclaimed author of The Middle Passage and Under Saturn's Shadow.
|Under Saturn's Shadow|
The Wounding and Healing of Men (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts, No. 63)
Saturn was the infamous Roman god who ate his children in an attempt to stop them from usurping his power. Men throughout history have been psychologically and spiritually burdened by this legacy, wounding themselves and others. Here the author of The Middle Passage offers a rich perspective on the secrets men carry in their hearts.
