The Best of James Hollis, Interview with the Editor

The Best of James Hollis: Wisdom for the Inner Journey is a collection of excerpts from the writings of James Hollis, PhD, Jungian psychotherapist and author. These selections, compiled by editor Logan Jones, span across his body of work from The Middle Passage (1993) to Prisms (2021) organized into different topics ranging from the psychological concepts of Carl Jung to the everyday tasks of our living and callings.

Hollis’s wisdom will challenge readers to find their own path, to be who they are called to be, to take the risks to trust their soul, and thus live a life worthy of their unique gifts. Hollis’s writings ask us to live a deeper and more authentic life

“The sense of journey—our life as a journey—
is intricately woven throughout Hollis’s body of work. It is
one of the major themes that I found so engaging and
provocative. The unfolding of our lives is not so much
arriving at a place as it is awakening to the journey we all
are summoned to travel. Our journey is our never-ending
search for meaning. It unfolds as we wrestle with the
questions posed to us by life so we can become our unique
selves. In essence, the journey is found in the courage to
become who we are meant to become. This living the
journey, then, represents the considered life, the examined
life.”  ~From the Foreword to Wisdom for the Inner Journey
