Our paths crossed in 1996 when we journeyed separately to the hills of Pennsylvania to attend a workshop called The Body Sacred.
Though we had never previously met, we “recognized” one another instantly. By the close of that weekend we had decided to explore our relationship further, recognizing that life had brought us together for a reason.
In 2006, we began offering our Alchemical Healing Mentorship to alternative healthcare practitioners. Today, our community has grown to include doctors, nurses, psychotherapists, artists and other cultural change makers as well as laypeople who are interested in discovering how caring for the soul can transform not only our personal lives but the world as well.
The goal of our work is to help people develop a conscious relationship to their inner life – leading to a more meaningful, purposeful, and creative life in the outer world.
We practice and teach modern-day alchemy, the art of transforming metaphorical “lead” – suffering, illness, hardship – into “gold” – the bright spirit of possibility that defines a meaningful human life. We focus on working with the more subtle levels of what it means to be human and on how our capacity for insight, understanding, and action at that level changes the outer expression of who we become.
We founded A New Possibility in 2012 in order to expand a community of people who believe that healing begins when we recognize the opportunities waiting to be discovered through our active engagement with the challenges of illness, impasse, and resistance in our lives. We’ve discovered that when individuals come together to shine their unique light in the world in service to others and with the intention of designing solutions, we can’t help but make the world a healthier place. We’d love to hear from you as we continue to build a network of people and organizations committed to this vision.
To new possibilities,
Lorie and Benjamin
