Summary

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 Dr. 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. In time, as we have seen of life’s other insolubles, we grow large enough to contain what threatened to destroy us.”

Hollis’ students 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, dreamwork, 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” - an inner 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 as you listen to 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.”

Classic Hollis

A deeply inspiring, troubling, and wonderful book. I missed James Hollis’s voice though, but all the details, wit, and wisdom are there in the words.

Most insightful!

An absolutely gem of a book. I believe James Holis is one of the best if not The best Jungian authors of our time.

Very helpful

I have found this book has helped inspire me to take a more proactive role in mediating the situations and routines of my life, especially during these troubling times, where complacency can easily take hold and run amok with our lives and, thus, the world with it.

Hollis utterly decimated by horrendous narration

I'm a huge fan of James Hollis. I've voraciously read and listened to all of his marvellous books but this one was just utterly appallingly narrated it became virtually impenetrable. The automated, near robotic voice of the narrator has no natural cadence, making it difficult to actually hear complete sentences when words are discombobulated into syllables strung together. Probably wiser to buy the book this time than have it ruined by the narrator.

Basically... brilliant. Where has this been all my life!

The vocab choice is a bit difficult to follow at times so admittedly some of the author’s meanings were not entirely understood by me, and that’s a shame. I am on my second listen and am making a note of the words to look them up. But essentially, the core messages were sufficiently conveyed and resonated to such an extent that I feel reassured that this book does successfully unearth the meaning of life, and where/how it is, that our ‘human condition’ causes our suffering, and how to heal/‘fix’ the pain.
Thank you very much !

Interesting book but bad narration

Interesting book but bad narration. Narration is bearable at x1.2. It would been great with better narration.

beautiful advice and perspective for life

I loved this. it is very broad: addictions, love, spirituality, grief, getting through difficult times. perspectives on psychoanalysis, relating better to our inner voice. it is often very dense and I had to replay sections to really take it in. definitely going to stay with me for a long time
