Instructor: James Hollis, PhD

Jung observed that “Life is a short pause between two great mysteries.”

That fact is not in dispute; what matters then, is how we live that pause.

E.M. Forster observed that the two who could most illumine us, the corpse and the baby, are not talking. Given that mortality frames our journey, how might we live it more fully, not defined by fear, morbidity, and denial? What attitudes and practices allow us to live more fully? And what psychological maturation brings us to experience this short pause as rich with meaning?
