CCLA congratulates Lorie Eve Dechar and Benjamin Fox; We’re thrilled to announce that their book, ALCHEMICAL HEALING: A Medicine For the Soul of Our Time, will be published by Red Wheel/Weiser in Spring 2020.
The book is a hands-on guide for practitioners and patients as well as a journey of discovery, and a meditation on what it means to heal and live a truly health-filled life. It helps readers understand and apply the principles, tools, and practices of alchemy and to discover how doing so can help turn things around in our inner and outer worlds. The book includes information drawn from traditional Chinese medicine and Taoist alchemy, medieval European alchemy, Kabbalah, Vedic Tantric traditions, and modern depth psychology. But it’s also a personal story, rooted in insights from Lorie’s own life challenges and study of alchemy during thirty years of practice as an acupuncturist, therapist, and healer.
