Classes and Seminars

The New Orleans Counseling Center will be offering “The Third Half of Life,” a special five-week course which focuses on transcending the opposing internal forces that continually threaten to fragment our lives. Emphasis will be placed on retrieving parts of our Selves that have been lost and bringing them back to life.

The course begins with an in-depth review of typology, recalling the various functions by which we operate and experience life’s events. It goes on to discuss the importance of learning ways to utilize any or all of the functions. Then comes a session on the Shadow. These areas coalesce into a means of gaining new knowledge of one’s psyche. Gods and goddesses, myths and poetry, make this course a treasure hunt of discovery. We will also explore the necessity of creatively working with the Shadow in order to raise the unconscious closer to consciousness.

Each meeting begins with a reading from “The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in the Middle” by James Hollis.

This course is limited to 10 people and participants are encouraged to purchase “The Third Half of Life” workbook as soon as their registration is confirmed due to shipping times. The text can be found here: The price for the course is $150.
