Instructor: James Hollis, PhD
NOTE: This is an enhanced online version of a class taught at The Jung Center by James Hollis in the summer of 2013. Continuing education credit is available for psychologists, social workers, and masters-level psychotherapists.
However troubled their personal lives, some poets intuitively embody profound insight into the nature and dynamics of the human psyche in their work. They are vehicles for the embodiment of the invisible world, which they render more accessible by making it visible through metaphor and image. This four week course will focus upon four who open apertures into the universal motions of the human psyche. They are: Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Mary Oliver.
