unfolding into JOY


Soul Alchemy — Get in touch with your inner magic


"A surprisingly playful yet extremely well orchestrated method to connect to one's intuition/inner voice which magically helped me formulate a new vision and path. I surprised myself during the last session by writing an amazing one-and-a-half-page summary of past, present, future containing positive, achievable, encouraging action steps i am taking now."
— Hk, Oakland

"SoulAlchemy is like spiritual or metaphysical yoga: the process involves a figurative stretching of the mind -- sometimes into challenging positions -- resulting in increased oxygen (i.e., spaciousness, clarity, and freedom) for the soul and a heart open to new possibilities."
— Tara McCulloch,

Bringing together inner and outer, the conscious and the unconscious, the apparent and the invisible, to further your blossoming.

In alchemy, the goal is to transform the base metal lead into gold. In Soul Alchemy, the "gold" we work toward is for you to live joyfully and gracefully, fully being yourself. That's when life unfolds with ease, when you experience joy, and have the sense of being in the right place at the right time—in short: you blossom. You blossom when you are attuned to yourself and aligned with the world around you.

SoulAlchemy for Women —
Connecting with your Soul,
(Re)claiming your true nature,
Stepping into more ease + joy

This alchemical group program sets you on the path of transformation and clarity. You will discover yourself again (or perhpas for the first time) as you examine your life through the lens of alchemical dimensions. Over the course of 2 months you will explore shadows and light, reality and possibility, and begin to befriend your authentic self. You will begin to align yourself with yourself more as you connect with your inner truth, and feel a new sense of possibility and empowerment as you (re)claim your sense of purpose and self-worth. This alchemical method will lead you to more clarity and, over time and with practice, to more joy, and more ease in your life.

What do we do in SoulAlchemy?
The key to becoming fully attuned to yourself lies in building a bridge between your conscious mind and the unconscious. SoulAlchemy offers you this key for deep transformation in a playful package. We access the unconscious and connect it to consciousness using images, various other prompts, archetypal images, divination, art-making, reflection, and powerful visualizations.

The unconscious is a storehouse of wisdom and intuition far beyond what the mind can see. Making friends with your unconscious by exploring it and accessing its hidden wisdom is a powerful way to acquire self-knowledge and immensely helpful in making good life decisions. It is the path to more clarity and alignment with your inner world, your soul. Once you align yourself with your soul, the outer world around you follows and falls into place—or, in C.G. Jung's terms, seemingly random occurrences become favorable coincidences known as synchronicity.

We will work a lot with images, reflection, and visualizations to bridge between the realms of the conscious mind and the unconscious. In summary the modalities of this alchemical journey are:

·      reflection
·      exploring alchemical symbolism
·      writing
·      working with images
·      drawing/collage (your choice)
·      visualization
·      sharing
·      community


You will learn to

·      look at your life from a new perspective
·      appreciate your strengths and achievements
·      reframe and forgive yourself for your failures
·      gain a new understanding of how positive and negative co-exist
·      appreciate yourself for who you are
·      connect with your deeper sense of self
·      learn to focus on what really matters
·      become empowered to accept and embrace the many facets of life.

A new in-person group will start on May 8 in Berkeley.

The group meets on 7 evenings over the course of two months. Please let Eva know that you're interested and she will email you the dates for the next group.
