The Middle Passage shows how we may pass through midlife consciously, rendering our lives more meaningful and the second half of life immeasurably richer.

Ask yourself, 'When do I feel most real?' What comes up on the screen? All of us have had moments in our lives when we felt whole or wholly present, or experienced a sense of well-being, an intuition of a higher order of reality. Such moments are transitory, alas, and cannot be summoned up by will or mind or right conduct, just as the person who seeks humility finds more and more that pride and one-sidedness push the goal further and further away. - excerpt from Creating A Life

Character structures underlie everyone’s personality. When rigidly defended, they limit us; yet as they become more flexible, they can reveal sources of animation, renewal and authenticity. The Matrix and Meaning of Character guides the reader into an awareness of the archetypal depths that underlie character structures, presenting an original developmental model in which current analytic theories are synthesised. The authors examine nine character structures, animating them with fairy tales, mythic images and case material, creating a bridge between the traditional language of psychopathology and the universal realm of image and symbol. This book will appeal to all analytical psychologists, psychoanalysts and psychotherapists who want to strengthen their clinical expertise. It will help clinicians to extend their clinical insights beyond a strictly behavioural, medical or cognitive approach, revealing the potential of the human spirit.

Tales told by shadowy elders around ancient campfires offered both explanation and comfort. Life hasn't changed that much: our dependence on explanation and comfort still lies just under our busy ambition and constant yearning. James Hollis shows us a way to bring such stories to consciousness - what questions to ask, and when. This is not a quick-fix book, but it may be the only way to discover that sense of meaning and personal authenticity that no amount of outer success can provide.

In this work, Alexander Lynar recalls his privileged childhood in pre-war and wartime Germany on the family's two vast estates. He describes a way of life lost for ever and a childhood spent under the increasing dominance of the Nazis. As the war drew to a close, the Russians were poised to overrun the family estate at Gorlsdorf. On 20 April 1945, Hitler's birthday, 16-year-old Alexander, at home on sick leave before joining the navy, took charge of burying what valuables he could. With the help of their coachman, gamekeeper and an estate worker, 15 cases were buried and a map made recording the precise location of the treasure. Thanks to the loyalty of those who remained the secret was never disclosed.
