Nostalgia and Longing for Home

by James Hollis, Ph.D.


Deepen your idea of home

We all carry deep within our bones a kind of longing for home, which raises the question of what is home? In this mini-course, you will get an opportunity to explore your concept of home as well as listen to James Hollis's take on the topic.

James Hollis, Ph.D.

James Hollis, Ph. D. is a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, D.C. He has been teaching for half a century and is the author of seventeen books translated into 20 languages. The latest books are:  Living Between Worlds: Finding Personal Resilience in Changing Times and Prisms: Reflections on this Journey We Call Life.


For people who feel separated from home

>> For people who search for their inner home

>> For global nomads, who want to feel at home in the world

>> For those who move for their own or their partner's job (or other circumstances that seem to be not their first choice)

>> For those who lost their sense of belonging

What you will learn:

How we get separated from home and what is nostalgia.
Where is your home and what Carl Jung said about it.
What happens when you move away from home.

What you will get:

>> Video recording of each segment so you'll have the information easily accessible

>> Audio recording of each segment to download on your digital devices and listen at your convenience

>> Handouts with recommended reading and activities to deepen your exploration

>> Discussion Board where you can leave your comments and share your ideas

>> Transcripts of all segments. We’ve designed your transcripts with clear formatting, space for you to take notes, and helpful highlighted quotes so you’ll have the information easily accessible


The transcript makes it easier to integrate new concepts

You can also go back and double-check citations and names that are mentioned

Having the transcripts allows you to jot your notes on how you’re going to use the ideas rather than transcribing the class

Some people simply learn better by reading than by listening or watching

My experience with Dr. Hollis, his professional expertise and knowledge of Jung psychology, has been a beacon of light in my personal day-to-day journey through life.
