Alchemy is most often understood as a primitive scientific attempt to create elemental gold, yet alchemy also sought the ‘inner gold’. So too, modern psychotherapy has the capacity to transform prima materia, the unwanted material of everyday life, into something meaningful, thus helping us find the ‘gold’ in the shadow.

In these challenging, polarized times we draw from the ancient wisdoms of the alchemical process to deepen our understanding of personal and collective transformation.

This workshop will be delivered as a video recording. Internet access is required to view the recording.
