Is the purpose of life to achieve happiness Who does not long to arrive some distant day at that sunlit meadow where we may abide in pure contentment In reality we know life is not like that our road is often dreary, the way unclear Much of the time we are lost in the dismal states of guilt, grief, betrayal, doubt, depression, anger, terror and the like Is this all weIs the purpose of life to achieve happiness Who does not long to arrive some distant day at that sunlit meadow where we may abide in pure contentment In reality we know life is not like that our road is often dreary, the way unclear Much of the time we are lost in the dismal states of guilt, grief, betrayal, doubt, depression, anger, terror and the like Is this all we can hope for Perhaps not, says this author The Jungian perspective, by encompassing both the meadow and the bog, asserts that the goal of life is not happiness but meaning And meaning, though it may not be all sunlight and blossoms, is real Swamplands of the Soul explores the quicksands where we have all floundered It lights a beacon by showing what they mean in terms of our individual journey and the engendering of soul For it is precisely where we encounter the gravitas of life that we also uncover its purpose, its dignity and its deepest meaning.

    This was first book I read on Jungian psychology. I found it challenging and compelling - so much so that I have since added several other of Hollis' books to my shelves and just recently attended both a talk and a workshop he presented. Hollis is a thoughtful guide into the shadowy depths of meaning in life, particularly in midlife.

    A must read for anyone who enjoys Hollis' work. His way of discussing a common emotion in ways you've never even considered it is incredible. He artful opens those pathways for reframing our lives and the lives of our clients.

    This is a book all about the man "swamplands of the soul" that occur in life. These are guilt, grief, loss, betrayal, doubt, loneliness, depression, despair, obsessions, addictions, anger, fear, angst and anxiety.

    Another superb Hollis book - I learn so much about myself and human vulnerabilities. We need and grow through our visitations to the swamplands - those dismal, uncertain feelings which are longing to be felt, so they can move through us and then move on. The end result: joy, contentment and then another visit to the swamplands; but I'm beginning to believe that some of those difficult feelings lead to a closer relationship to the transcendent.

    Life changing. Or, rather, life affirming. Focused on the meaning we can find in our dark times and emotions from a Jungian perspective this book came into my life at exactly the right time. Further cementing my love for Hollis.


  • Zarina Silverman

    This book was extremely helpful to me during a very dark time in my life. I recommend it to anyone who finds themselves struggling with painful emotions. Hollis is an excellent writer and speaker, although he has a tendency to repeat himself.


  • Ho
