Jungian Book Discussion


As are many today, we in the Jung Book Club are "Zooming" along! We would love to have you join us. Please send your email address to charlesranderson@yahoo.com and I will contact you with information about our next meeting including a link to the next Zoom session. 

We are currently reading James Hollis' book, Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life. Our last session was Tuesday, July 21, 2020. Our discussion was of chapter 6. Please join us. Thank you for your interest and support.

Stay safe and stay well.

The Jung Society of North Texas sponsors a book discussion group that currently meets via Zoom. Meetings take place the first and third Tuesdays of each month, 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. All are welcome, and there is no charge. Charles Anderson facilitates. You may contact him at charlesranderson@yahoo.com.

During this time of great change all around us we are reading Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life, by Dr. James Hollis. He well describes midlife (ages 35 to 70, plus or minus a few years) and asks searching questions that help us along the path to knowing who we are and what a life of meaning is for each individual.

As we discuss the chapters, I continue to invite everyone to pick out passages or concepts which you think are most important or worthy of discussion.
