Begin an Adventure.
Things have more capacity to transform than we often realize. This is the genius of alchemy—understanding how one thing can become something very different in the right conditions. Limitation can become advantage; an antagonist can become the perfect ally. Something ordinary may hold within it that which is surprising.
Who is it for?
The Alembic is for people who seek that which is unusual and provocative, yearn for places that inspire, embrace conversations that turn ordinary wisdom upside down, and feel the pull of hidden worlds. Those who make the journey view it as one of the most meaningful and exciting times of their life.
How is it structured?
Approximately 20 people explore the 13 elements of alchemical transformation on a nine-month journey that includes meeting three times in person. Some come from organizations in the Alembic Coterie that sponsor one leader each year. Others come on their own. Between onsites participants can access tools, conversations, and coaching as much or as little as they like—the Alembic is designed to accommodate really busy people.
What are the three onsite experiences like?
Our days together integrate potent experiences, organizational tools, treks on the land, scientific demonstrations, and intriguing conversation. During these times you interact with people as diverse as a Yaqui nagual, corporate intuitive, visionary artist, physicist, futurists and CEO innovators—all guided by a family doing transformative work in healthcare.
