Reflections From the Chrysalis is a collection of 44 of the best essays from Jungian Analyst Dr. Bud Harris' newsletter and blog.

These essays spring from Dr. Harris' personal reflections on his own journey to wholeness, including introspection and observations of the world. "In the chrysalis my old self is dissolved... and a new form emerges whose pattern was there all of the time without me being aware of it."

Spanning years 2007 to 2022, the book is organized into chapters by theme: Sacred Aging; Archetypes of the Feminine; Bravery, Strength, and Forgiveness; The Tools of Transformation: Dreamwork and Journaling; Aspects of Individuation; and Authentic Citizenship.
