“We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide exempla for others. We are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being. As the gods intended, we are here to become more and more ourselves.” - Dr. James Hollis

As part of our semester-long theme “What Matters Most,” Chrysalis Institute proudly welcomes internationally renowned Jungian analyst and author James Hollis, PhD, as our featured keynote speaker this spring. Richmond is fortunate to be one of seventeen cities on Dr. Hollis’ international lecture tour this year.

Perhaps one of the most important lessons we can learn is how to discern what is important and what isn’t. Simple, yet paradoxically challenging. To begin to answer this question, we must be willing to explore our values, beliefs, and ideals. The longer we live, the more we realize who we are and what matters most to us. And that understanding can lead to a more meaningful and joyful life.

Are you living your own fearless, authentic life? What really matters most to you? 

James Hollis, PhD currently serves as Executive Director of the Jung Society in Washington, DC, and has served as Executive Director of the Jung Educational Center of Houston, professor of Jungian Studies at Saybrook University in San Francisco, and Senior Training Analyst for the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts. He was the first Director of the Philadelphia Jung Institute, and is president emeritus of the Philemon Foundation. Dr. Hollis has authored 15 books including Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life; What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life; The Middle Passage; and Hauntings: Dispelling the Ghosts Who Run Our Lives.
