Sintesi dell'editore

How do you define “growing up?” Does it mean you achieve certain cultural benchmarks - a steady income, paying taxes, marriage, and children? Or does it mean leaving behind the expectations of others and growing into the person you were meant to be? With the unabridged audio of Living an Examined Life, James Hollis offers an essential guidebook for anyone at a crossroads in life. Here this acclaimed author guides you through 21 areas for self-inquiry and growth - such as how to exorcise the ghosts of your past, when to choose meaning over happiness, how to construct a mature spirituality, and how to seize permission to be who you really are.

Extraordinary compilation of Dr. Hollis' works

Grateful for yet another of James Hollis' volumes distilling for consumption Jungian conceptions into understandable explanations and practical application. I believe I have read his entire shelf, yet never is there a trace of redundancy. Again, grateful for work of Dr. Hollis.

Creating a path for the soul

Hollis asks the questions and offers insight in service of enlarging the soul and diminishing the constricting forces of ego. I am indebted to James Hollis for facilitating the opening in me to endeavor to live consciously, encounter my shadows, and seek always to align myself with living meaningfully. Living the Examined Life reads like Hollis's collected wisdom--wisdom that finds resonance in living the big questions--and is best read slowly and pondered deeply.

Must-listen if you find yourself in midlife crisis

Listening to this book is like therapy with a seasoned and intuitive therapist, only better.

I am about halfway through the book, and I have been listening to each chapter several times (at least thrice) before I move to the next one. This is because the thoughts, ideas and insights are so jam packed into the text that is narrated, that I am unable to unpack it all during the first, or even the second time I listen to it. I feel like I am chipping away at it, taking away something each time I listen to it. Each time I have finished a chapter I feel a certain peace inside, one that comes from getting a better insight into my own psyche. Long after I am done with this book, I am certain that I will be coming back to it, possibly several times in my life.

I feel lucky to have stumbled onto James Hollis work as I try to decipher this confusing juncture I find myself at, and I find myself relying more and more on his books, interviews and podcasts to help me get some clarity

Hollis does not write how-to books. His books will not offer you ready solutions that you can apply and move on, but they will do one better. They will give you insights and perspectives that will help you chart your own way forward

great listen, but I now need the paper copy

Top shelf book for getting the right questions asked in your life and getting your own voice to be the dominant influence in your life. An amazing book on so many levels and I now must study the paperback.

Philosophy and psychology in a perfect mix

This deep and rich book is a wealth of wisdom that guide one on life’s journey. It answered lots of my questions that have followed me through life. This book is a good jumping off point for what’s next.

I couldn’t follow the writer’s style

Try as hard as I have, I just can’t follow this writer’s style - in audio. I think it’s his sentence structure. Way too many clauses and qualifiers bury the core of every sentence. I love Jung’s work but I just can’t follow this author.

Narrator was awful

James Hollis is one of my favorites. I’m very dissatisfied with the narrator. I tried several times to listen and couldn’t. It was just WAY too fast. I tried sliding down to 75x but it was distorted. Waste of money

Interesting read

I had to work to get past his tendency to throw around a lot of big words just for the sake of using big words, which was too bad since he has some really good thoughts and ideas. Overall, I took away several new ideas.

A nice summary of Hollis works.

If you like Hollis' works, this serves as a reminder of many of his ideas as a Jungian analyst. If you're a beginning reader of his books, this may not be a good start as you need a little more than this thin volume, then read his "Finding meaning in the second part of life" as a nice start of his works. Personally, as someone who has read and reread many of his books, l find this one more practical, it gives advices that, if practiced often, could change your life.

So so good.

This is such a wonderful and thoughtful analysis of Jungian psychology as it relates to one’s soul’s journey. Highly recommend.

Another great James Hollis achievement

Would you listen to Living an Examined Life again? Why?

In his usual style James Hollis writes books that should be read and re-read over time as our understanding expands, there's more and more to take from his writing.
The only downside is not having James Hollis read it as in his other publications.

Truly profound.

A truly essential book. Read or listen to one short chapter per day. Each deserves thought and attention and (eventually) revisiting.
