Menla Retreat in Phoenicia, NY
What does it mean to be truly healthy?
How do we care for our selves and each to inspire the emergence of vital new possibilities in the midst of environmental crisis and cultural breakdown?
For the past twenty years, we have been engaged in an exploration of these questions through the learning community of our Alchemical Healing Mentorship.
This weekend retreat is a doorway into our work – the art and practice of healing as transformation.
We delve into the alchemical principles at the heart of Chinese medicine, Western astrology, and depth psychology, observing an attitude toward impasse and symptom that recognizes the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit as the foundation of true health. We also discover how healing can move beyond protocol and pain relief to become a creative experience that enlivens and transforms the soul. The inner work of alchemy opens a doorway to a new consciousness that ultimately extends beyond the personal to the healing of our communities and our planet.
Together, we create a safe and vibrant crucible where we support each other in learning skills, using tools, and strengthening our authenticity as practitioners and as fully engaged human beings.
Though this weekend is geared to practitioners, anyone with a keen interest in healing and growth is welcome.
