Alchemy: The Medicine of the Soul

Learn to turn any life challenge into a stepping stone on your soul’s journey of growth & evolution.

You are a healer, coach, seeker, artist or creative and feel you need to shift something in your work, but you’re not sure which direction to go & where to get the guidance or training to do this. Your inner journey is calling for more attention and you are tired and frustrated with looking in all the wrong places and wasting money and energy on endless classes and books. You need a process that is really going to work and that you can make your own.

You don’t understand why you keep repeating the same old patterns. You know something inside you is holding you back from the long-lasting change you have been searching for and preventing you from more fully and authentically living your life but you cannot put your finger on it. You are looking for a way to re-ignite your soul’s spark and transform your life once and for all so you can be there for yourself and your clients.

You want to learn new tools and models for healing that aren’t just repeats of the same old thing. Something that goes deep, is inspiring and really works when you are confronted with life’s challenges, losses and traumas. Everyone seems to be searching for the same thing but you are fed up trying to sift through everything out there to find the modality that really works. 

You have been trained in or are interested in aroma, yet you know there is a deeper, more subtle & powerful way to work with essential oils than most of what is offered in mainstream aromatherapy classes.

In Alchemy: The Medicine of the Soul Online Journey you will:

Experience & learn how to use a new powerful vocabulary for understanding your Soul’s journey through life as it processes and transforms experiences. This vocabulary of deep, inner knowing will enable you to share this work with your clients in a way that they will easily understand.

Understand what it means to be a Wounded Healer and how healing ourselves is foundational for healing others. Learn a process and transformational tools that help you connect with your soul and find its purpose in this lifetime, which can be adapted to any modality with ease and coherence.

Learn how to use aroma and other transformational tools to help you navigate the unconscious realms including dreams, the Shadow, intuitive hunches and inner knowing. Transform life’s emotional, mental and spiritual challenges into stepping stones on your soul’s journey of evolution.

Learn that we don’t grow by being taught other people’s processes but by becoming our own process.


  • Mastering a process that empowers you to grow through life’s challenges instead of being knocked down by them—no matter how difficult.
  • Feeling so confident in your own inner journey that this ripples out naturally to your clients and the world.
  • Finding a trusted powerful framework that you can use throughout life with any situation or modality. Not having to keep on searching for new techniques to evolve on your soul’s path.
  • Discovering the power of aromas as plant spirit guides that are at home in the unconscious realms, discover unknown aspects of ourselves and facilitate the journey of self-evolution.

These are some of the results people get after journeying through Alchemy: the Medicine of the Soul. Change the way you approach your inner and outer lives and give yourself a solid ground from which to carry on growing and evolving.
