Publisher's Summary

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.

Truly profound.

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

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.
