The Chrysalis Group was founded in 1994 by Nancy Milner to provide the Richmond, Virginia, community with opportunities for personal and spiritual growth through classes, Ember Day retreats, and Labyrinth walks. Her vision was "to provide hospitable time and space for seekers on diverse paths who wish to explore ways in which we can live connected to our true selves, to each other, to creation, and to The Spirit."
In my first six months as Executive Director at Chrysalis Institute, I have met with almost 100 stakeholders ranging from those who have been with the organization for the full 20 years to those who are just now discovering the organization. Every single person I’ve met with either cares deeply for this organization or is eager to know us more intimately. They have shared with me the things that Chrysalis does well, how we fill a unique gap in our community, and how we can continue to improve as an organization. They have helped me paint both the picture of the last 20 years and a vision of the future. I love learning how Chrysalis has improved the quality of life for so many, and hearing how so many are committed to continuous personal growth in an infinite number of ways. The spiritualities and practices are as numerous as the conversations - and that is beautiful.
It is an honor to lead this groundbreaking organization into the future. I follow in the footsteps of a number of visionary volunteer leaders and dedicated supporters who have helped shape Chrysalis Institute into what it is today; the place that many call the “future of spirituality”.
If you are not a current member, please consider joining us. Chrysalis is a nonprofit - our members are an important part of our sustainability and help us build a beautiful spiritual community in Richmond. Together we will substantially raise individual and community levels of spirituality, consciousness, creativity, wisdom, and compassion.
I am looking forward to meeting even more of you! Please reach out to me if you’d like to chat. firstname.lastname@example.org
