Présentation de l'éditeur

"James Hollis is the most lucid thinker I know about the complexities and complexes that interfere with living a full life. . . . He is one of our great teachers and healers.—Stephen Dunn, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet

What does life ask of us, and how are we to answer that summons?
Are we here just to propagate the species anew?
Do any of us really believe that we are here to make money and then die?
Does life matter, in the end, and if so, how, and in what fashion?
What guiding intelligence weaves the threads of our individual biographies?
What hauntings of the invisible world invigorate, animate, and direct the multiple narratives of daily life?

In Hauntings, James Hollis considers how we are all governed by the presence of invisible forms—spirits, ghosts, ancestral and parental influences, inner voices, dreams, impulses, untold stories, complexes, synchronicities, and mysteries—which move through us, and through history. He offers a way to understand them psychologically, examining the persistence of the past in influencing our present, conscious lives and noting that engagement with mystery is what life asks of each of us. From such engagements, a deeper, more thoughtful, more considered life may come.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hollis at the top of his game 3 août 2013
Par Jack H - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In a powerful assimilation and enhancement of his previous work, Dr. Hollis creates a concise masterpiece of depth psychology and wisdom for the soul.

'Haunting: Dispelling the Ghosts who Run Our Lives', didn't want to be born. After 13-previous books on soul development and Jungian psychology, James Hollis thought he was done writing. His highly regarded oeuvre, teaching and popularity as a Jungian lecturer have secured him a permanent place as a pioneer and guide to depth psychology and Jungian thought.

But Hollis has always tried to help people. While some see him as a "therapist's therapist" or professor, he is first and foremost a healer, encouraging those around him to improve their lives to pursue their individual growth and development. In the tradition of a true Jungian, Hollis teaches, shares and writes about what he has experienced himself. Whether it is the grief of surviving his son's death, experiencing a breakdown at midlife or simply coping with the stresses of modern life, Hollis heals most effectively because of his own experiences.

'Haunting' gathers many of his most powerful threads and collects them in an effort to identify and exorcise the archaic ghosts that haunt our lives. For example, I am 50-years-old and 75 pounds overweight. In most areas my life is "together." I love my son, friends and other family, I consciously want to live, yet I commit suicide on the installment plan one plate of nachos with extra sour cream at a time.

Whether the "ghost" that haunts me is a belief that "I'm not good enough," "I can't risk failure," "I don't deserve to be sexually attractive," there is something deep in my being that neither self-will, Jenny Craig or Nutrisystem have successfully cast out. I consciously want to change, I am tired of the same boring physical failure, but over and over I repeat the same bad choices.

'Haunting' gave me hope that I can eventually identify the "ghost" or "complex" that permits the destruction of my body and imagine a way of ending my servitude to its narrow, useless, destructive purpose. After reading Haunting, I believe that through trial, error, perseverance and courage I will find liberation. Thank you, Dr. Hollis!

Beyond the well-written prose, erudite vocabulary, clinical examples, inspiring quotes, brilliant insights and the pleasure of enjoying a master of Jungian psychology at the top of his game, what matters most is the possibility for personal healing and growth that 'Haunting' offers the committed reader. That gift is worth a hundred times the cost of this book.

Hopefully Haunting is his penultimate work, and not the capstone of James Hollis's literary legacy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hauntings: An Invitation To Consciousness 30 juillet 2013
Par Mary Jane Hurley Brant - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In his latest book, Hauntings: Dispelling The Ghosts Who Run Our Lives, Dr. James Hollis reminds us that our past is not truly past us. Our familial influences, life-altering traumas, and individual wounds follow us to the grave.

There are powerful stories shared in Hauntings. Many important psychological subjects such as guilt and shame, complexes and projections are also discussed.

In Hauntings Dr. Hollis writes about how our familial histories - whether good or bad or a mix - make for permanent complex charges within us. If we remain unconscious or oblivious to the power these both known or unspoken histories hold over us, we are more likely to make bad choices in our lives. Worse, we will live a life of desperation, despair or meaninglessness.

Dr. Hollis' books are consistently an invitation to explore our nature and our unconscious motivations. In Hauntings he shares some deeply touching and personal stories from his own history. He also explores the darker parts of our ego self which - if we do not claim its shadows - will torture us even somatically until we learn to acknowledge and surrender our neurotic, inflated or narcissistic persona. He offers when we examine these behaviors consciously we will be more likely to take responsibility for and manage the behaviors accordingly so we don't damage ourselves or others. He writes that these hurts can take on a generational theme of enormous agony. Dr. Hollis reiterates that while it's lovely to be "nice" it is far better to be "real." But, for our wounds to be healed they must first be acknowledged.

This authentically written book encourages psychological bravery and inspires us not to remain a prisoner or a victim of what "happened to us." This beautifully written book acknowledges that none of us can avoid betrayals, hurts, pain and loss and the grieving these circumstances warrant. But, how we handle these experiences is key to our recovery from life's pain and becoming conscious. That is a hopeful message for any of us who were subjected to trauma, negligence, bullying, poverty, addictions or loss.

Dr. Hollis writes that we are stronger than we think. He believes we can have sovereignty over our life by the choices we make consciously and thoughtfully. He wants us to live a more considered life and ask ourselves the bigger questions: Who am I? Why am I here? Who are my people? How am I different from others? Deeply spiritual questions from a profoundly sagacious teacher.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best of the best 10 août 2013
Par Lexis B - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have read several other books by Hollis, and this is the best of the best. I admit to only being half way through, but I am so stunned with the insights revealed by this text, and how they have deepened the thoughts of an already deep thinker, that I literally had to drop everything and recommend that if you are sitting on the fence: Buy this book! I have read Jung, James Hillman, Edward Edinger, Marie Louis Van Franz, Emma Jung, and many others. All of these authors are great, and of course, necessary to read. But this book somehow encapsulates thought that can lead directly to life-changing action. Especially as it was written as Hollis himself is an older man, it gives us hope, despite our youth-obsessed culture that no matter what our age, we are constantly evolving and our best works might yet be to come.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exorcising the past 26 juillet 2013
Par Shaku Selvakumar - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have read many of Dr Hollis' books and was delighted to learn that he had written his 14th book. I ordered the hard copy and also downloaded a kindle version.
There are some books that you want as a constant reminder to yourself and Hauntings is one of them. The book deals with all the ghosts and influences we carry like a monkey on our back. These dramas, complexes, neuroses are repetitive and hold us back. Serendipity and the hold of the past over our present and future is the backbone of this lucid, poetry filled and psyche-saving narrative. There are ghosts to be dealt with in Hauntings, though not of the horror movie kind. These are much more scarier, and you can't call an external exorcist. This tedious but soul-freeing job belongs solely to you.
"The past is not dead. It is not even past." William Faulkner's quote is prophetic in myriad ways and what we resist will persist, says Dr Hollis.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not his best work 22 août 2013
Par silly sally - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
When I saw that James Hollis had a new book, and read the reviews, I bought a Kindle edition of it. Now, admittedly my reaction might be my own resistance to his material.
I found the book more superficial than helpful. I kept waiting for the book to go deeper into connecting with our ghosts and learning how to deal with them. Unfortunately, it didn't. Most of the book talked about how our pasts haunt us, but did not really seem to express how deep you have to really go to get through to those old tapes that still run our lives and any advise on how to do that.
I did find that his book titled "Swamplands of the Soul: New Life in Dismal Places" called to me in a deeper manner than "Hauntings".

There were also grammatical errors, such as words that should have been plural and weren't, and words that were plural and should not have been. In addition, the most of the vocabulary is fairly easy to comprehend and then "psychological intellectualism" seems to throw in really big words that probably most Jungians don't even know...
I also found the book repetitious. It felt like a very uplifting sermon that could make you feel good for thinking about dealing with your past, without actually giving you any tools to actually do it, and really pretending that the trip is easy while saying it isn't.

I have found that the books of Robert A Johnson, another Jungian are much simpler to read and yet convey the depth of the issue in a very real way that "Hauntings" does not do for me.

Facing one's inner darkness is not an easy thing to do. It is literally a death and a rebirth process, a very real death to the fears of the ego, and a radical shift from trying to find the answers outside of ourselves to walking into a dark unknown and trusting that we will find what we need within ourselves. There is no map giving us the most direct route or the scenic route. You might want to check out the work of Neil Douglas-Klotz on the Aramaic words of Jesus. One translation of the line we know as "give us this day our daily bread has a deeper meaning of "show us the next step" not the end and not where the rest stops are, but just the next step. Sometimes that is the hardest thing to do. To trust that the next step is enough and that once you take the first step, the second will become visible...

If you are really serious about exploring your own darkness, you have to connect with someone who has already gone there and come out on the other. They cannot lead you, they can only walk along side you and be there to remind you that this will be worthwhile on the days when you wonder why you ever started the process in the first place.

I think this book could be helpful for people who are not familiar with Jungian thought. It will give a place to start to think about these things.

I deeply believe that humanity as a whole needs to work on the individuation process until we can all see that when we interact with other people, most of the time we are only seeing the other through the prejudices and assumptions that we are not even aware of. There is rarely an authentic meaningful interaction, because most of us are still caught in the fear of the ego.

Like I said, this is only my opinion, and I would encourage you to come to your own conclusions. It may be that this book can open up a new world for you. It did not do that for me.
