Publisher's Summary

The Broken Mirror: Refracted Visions of Ourselves explores the need to know ourselves more deeply, and the many obstacles that stand in our way. The various sections illustrate internal obstacles such as intimidation by the magnitude of the project, the readiness to avoid the hard work, and gnawing self-doubt, but also provide tools to strengthen consciousness to take these obstacles on. Additional essays address living in haunted houses, the necessity of failure, and the gift and limits of therapy.

Most of all, Hollis addresses the resources we all have within, or can obtain for ourselves, to lead a more abundant life and to step into larger possibilities for our unfolding journeys.

James Hollis, Ph.D. is a Zürich-trained Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, DC where he lives with his wife Jill, whose art has provided four Chiron covers. The Broken Mirror, his 18th book, includes “notes toward a memoir” that illustrates the benefits a review of one’s life may bring the listener.

perhaps Hollis' best book

Hollis is a prominent Jungian scholar and his work is recommended as generally good.
One caveat, however:
1. he was a humanities professor. His prose is turgid and professorial with many fifty-dollar words. I like it, but some may differ.
This book does NOT present the awful, cloying progressive/Leftist interludes of past works.
