Alchemy is the ancient science and art of creating positive change – meaningful transformation. The term was traditionally used to refer to the spiritual practices of the first chemists from ancient cultures around the world. Early alchemists sought enlightenment by trying to unify mortal existences and the purity of the heavens. Our modern alchemy promotes our innate ability to live in a positive and healthy way, changing the chemistry in the mind and body, enabling us to thrive in our everyday lives. Practical Alchemy became known as Chemistry and included seeking to turn base metals (such as lead) into gold. This was a metaphor for cleansing the soul, promoting spiritual perfection. Spiritual Alchemy is a form of mysticism and self-improvement, focusing on chemical analogies. It is said that the key to alchemy lies within! Hundreds of years ago, there was no separation between spiritual and physical practices. Over the last century-or-so, Western medicine drew a duality between the two.
