Summary

A masterful author and Jungian analyst examines the qualities that bring meaning to our human journey What is it that brings meaning to your life? Our culture tells us to seek wealth, power, prestige, or even enrollment in someone else’s idea of a worthy cause - yet where do we turn when these myths fail to fulfill our need for purpose? “When the old stories and beliefs that once defined us have played out and grown exhausted”, teaches Dr. James Hollis, “our task is to access our inner compass, the promptings of the psyche that help us find our way through the complex thickets of choice”.  Investigate the mystery of your existence through the portal of depth psychology A Life of Meaning is a profound audio exploration of the nature of meaning and how we can orient toward it or away from it with the choices we make. Through examination of myth, literature, historical figures, and the wisdom of depth psychology, Hollis provides penetrating insight into the search for purpose. Here you’ll explore:   How our story-seeking mind forms our sense of meaning from early experience  Why these early stories inevitably fail as we are called to our own path  Skillfully accessing the inner oracle of your dreams  Shadow work - where we fear to tread, yet where our greatest treasures may be found  Missing the mark - examining the archetype of the Seven Deadly Sins through a psychological lens  Dispelling the “ghosts” that haunt our memories and possess our psyche  Finding personal resilience in times of internal and external change  Living more fully in the presence of our mortality  Guidance for coming into alignment with your soul’s abiding quest for meaning at any stage of your life  Nobody else can provide you with a sense of meaning. Anyone who tries is attempting to enroll you in their own version. In A Life of Meaning, James Hollis offers no easy answers or feel-good certainties - instead, he shares his most valuable questions and reflections to help you find the courage, persistence, and inspiration to navigate your own odyssey. “It’s humbling work, this process of getting our lives back”, he teaches. “Yet I submit to you that's worth the price of the ticket, for in the journey our lives become ever more luminous”.

Summary

For five weeks, the world waited for news about Danny Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan. And then came the broadcast of his shocking murder. The complete account of his abduction, the intense effort to rescue him, and the aftermath are told here in astonishing detail, and with courage and insight by his surviving wife, Mariane. A Mighty Heart is the unforgettable story of two journalists who fell in love with their work and with each other. Together, Mariane and Danny Pearl traveled across the globe, with a dedication to journalism that would increase understanding of international politics and of ethnic and religious conflict. In the end, Danny was caught in the dangerous fissure where warring cultures, politics, and ideologies collide. A Mighty Heart is both a portrait of a partnership built on the ideals of love, truth, and justice and a critical look at the methods and structure of the Al Qaeda network.
