James Hollis: Myths That Live Us!

When people discuss the work of Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist who founded analytical psychology, terms like “ego,” “archetype” and “God” may mean entirely different things.

Paul talks definitions and all things Jungian with noted scholar, prolific author and Jungian analyst Dr. James Hollis in this very special Living 4D episode.

Learn more about Tracking The Gods: The Movement of Archetypal Powers in Our Time master class taught by Dr. Hollis that’s recommended by Paul at this link.
