On this episode of The Intelligent Divorce with Mark Banschick, M.D., Dr. James Hollis joins us and provides insight into our lives and relationships.
James Hollis, Ph.D., taught Humanities for 26 years in various colleges and universities before retraining as a Jungian analyst at the Jung Institute of Zurich, Switzerland. He is a licensed Jungian analyst in private practice, in Houston, Texas, where he is also Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston. Dr. Hollis has published eleven books with total sales well over 100,000 copies, the most recent being Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life (Gotham Books/Penguin).
What is your life's purpose, and does it have meaning? What happens when we get off purpose? Dr. Hollis helps us understand how we can be our worst enemy. Much of our current unrest can be attributed to our experiences as children and young adults. The paradox is that the adaptations that were necessary during childhood often stand as the imprisoning behaviors and values later in life.
Have you ever asked yourself the question, "If I'm doing all the right things, why doesn't it feel right inside?" How do we inherit our past, and how is it affecting our current life? These questions, as well as thoughts on marriage and relationships, are discussed in this episode.
