Chrysalis Spring Book Club: What Matters Most

  • Chrysalis Institute 3527 Ellwood Avenue Richmond, VA, 23221 United States (map)

Book: What Matters Most by James Hollis, Ph.D.

Why are we here? What is the meaning of existence? What truly matters the most in life? To even begin to answer these questions we must start by exploring our own internal ideals, values, and beliefs. Presenting the unique perspective of respected analyst and author James Hollis, Ph.D., What Matters Most helps readers learn to appreciate (even be amazed by) events unfolding within, even as the external world creates constant struggles.
