A New Home for Chrysalis Institute




This spring, Chrysalis Institute will move into a new space at 213 Roseneath Road in the heart of Richmond’s Museum District (behind Temple Beth-El at the intersection of Grove Avenue and Roseneath Road). A crowdfunding campaign raised more than $75,000 to renovate the building and improve the outdoor space.

      The new location will include an urban meditation garden on the front patio, a gallery showcasing art by Chrysalis members, staff offices and a 1,200-square-foot classroom and lecture space. It will be open, airy and welcoming, with abundant natural light.

      Chrysalis Executive Director Rachel Douglas says, “We wanted a place that would reflect the beautiful work going on inside of it. When we first saw our new space, which is an old school building, we saw the ample parking available on the interior of the block, the large brick patio and the huge bank of windows, and knew it had the potential to be gorgeous.”

      For more than 20 years, Chrysalis has fostered personal and spiritual growth through a wide variety of programs that enhance mindfulness, wisdom, creativity, compassion and well-being. It hosts an annual Mindful Parenting Conference, a six-month intensive Spiritual Paths program and a variety of classes, practice groups, retreats and lectures.
