Chrysalis Institute, a non-profit organization, is a vibrant resource and learning center for exploring insights and practices drawn from the world’s spiritual traditions, philosophies and contemporary science. We offer a bounty of innovative programs, from lectures to workshops to practice groups. Quarterly silent retreats at The Clearing acknowledge the change of seasons and provide opportunities to reflect in a natural setting, while our labyrinth welcomes all seekers to connect to self and spirit through this ancient practice. Nationally recognized spiritual leaders, visionaries, and scientists share their expertise in keynote presentations. Programs are organized on the basis of semi-annual themes such as “Living Fully, Dying Mindfully” and “What Matters Most.”

Starting in 2016, our Institute faculty of experts launched a 6-month deep dive program called Spiritual Paths for 20-25 spiritual seekers to develop individual spiritual practices and understandings. This program has been described with rave reviews by its first two cohorts. The faculty is developing an online Learning Space, a topically themed library of articles, links and learning experiences. We also offer opportunities for meditation, mindfulness and other spiritual practices. Our monthly member publication, Words for the Journey, offers the words of a different guest writer as a tool for spiritual practice. We also publish a semi-annual newsletter and a twice monthly eNewsletter.

Chrysalis offers leading-edge resources to open diverse paths for spiritual growth.
