Jung observed that “life is a short pause between two mysteries.” That fact is not in debate; what does matter, then, is how we live that short pause. Given that mortality frames our brief journey, our focus will be on the attitudes and practices which enable us to live more fully, particularly when dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, loss, and physical illness. We will examine the role of psychological maturation as a way of making meaning of our lives.
