Alchemy is the art & science of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. The alchemist is YOU and you are being called upon to tap into the alchemical power that is already part of you to create deep intimacy with the essence of your life. Our commitment with this training is to help you unleash the full potency of your hearts that hold the magic of curiosity, creativity and authentic communication in service of compassion and love for all beings.
We are all alchemists here.
Collaborating with the divine one,
with every breath,
whispers of the beloveds presence,
all around us
majestic reminders that we are one
with a great blessed force
pulsing into ever-ripening, rapturous bliss.
~Denise DeLuca (Anguilla, March 2015)
