Event description



a day with



Date - Saturday 22nd October 2016

Location – 24 Greencoat Place, SW1P 1RD

(There is disability access at this venue)

In his first British lecture, the celebrated Jungian analyst and author James Hollis will hold a one-day workshop on What Matters Most.

James Hollis follows in the footsteps of James Hillman, Marie-Louise von Franz, Robert Johnson, Robert Bly and of course, Carl Gustav Jung. Hollis brings Jung’s complex theories to life, makes his sometimes obtuse insights accessible and challenges his followers with searing questions which dare us to live a more authentic life.

Hollis is a graduate of the Jung Institute of Zurich.  He is the author of fourteen books including The Middle Passage, The Eden Project, Swamplands of the Soul, Creating a Life, Under Saturn’s Shadow, Why Good People Do Bad Things, Hauntings and What Matters Most. He lives with his wife Jill in Washington DC.

“James Hollis is the most lucid thinker I know about the complexities and complexes that interfere with living a full life. He is one of our great teachers and healers.”

Stephen Dunn, Pullitzer Prize-Winning Poet

Hollis speaks to and teaches from the heart. A combination of genuine vision and genuine humanity is a rare and valuable gift.”

Clarissa Pinkola Estes, author, ‘Women who run with the wolves’.

Hollis writes, “In the end, having a more interesting life, a life that disturbs complacency, a life that pulls us out of the comfortable and thereby demands a larger spiritual engagement than we planned or that feels comfortable, is what matters most…..to have kept one’s appointment with destiny, to have taken one’s journey through this dark, bitter, luminous, wondrous universe, to have risked being who we really are, is, finally, what matters most.”

The day will focus on themes based on four chapters from the book ‘What Matters Most’ and will include break out discussions and question and answer sessions. Participants are strongly encouraged to read the book prior to attending the workshop.
