From the Blog:
August 6, 2014
For the past two thousand years or more, alchemists have been investigating the spiritual nature of carbon-based life or what could also be described as “the soul’s journey on planet Earth.” Alchemists got good at understanding organic processes – how things gestate, sprout, blossom, fruit and seed; in other words, how living beings transform over time.
Throughout my thirty years of practice as an acupuncturist and alchemical healer, my interest has also focused on the soul – my own and my patients’ as well as the soul of the world – the animals, plants as well as the elements of water, wood, fire, earth and metal. Learning to understand and relate to the subtle energies that move and move through living beings has been the goal of my exploration.
That is why when my husband, Benjamin, suggested that we consider building a website and bringing our alchemical work to the internet, my first response was, “No way! Can’t be done!” Alchemy developed in organic, carbon-based reality where myth, magic and spiritual mystery rather than technology reigned supreme. Alchemy takes time. Its laboratory is the body and the natural world. It comes to life in relationship, in inter-active energetic fields of connection. And beyond all that, alchemy has traditionally been a secret teaching that was transmitted through symbols and riddles not well suited to the mini-bites of web communication.Read More
