“My sincere hope is that everyone will read this treasure trove of essential inner knowledge. This book is a magnificent accomplishment."
-- Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit

Alchemy is the science of transformation—how to change one thing into something else. In The Alchemy of Inner Work, Dechar and Fox examine how illness, suffering, and dis-ease—the “lead” of our lives—can become the “gold” of our authentic selves, and the key to good health and well-being.

Drawing on traditional Chinese medicine, Eastern and Western alchemical traditions, Kabbalah, and Jungian psychology—plus case studies from working with patients—the authors provide hands-on insights for bringing “the soul of medicine” back into our lives.

The book includes:

  • A simple introduction to the ancient practices and principles alchemy
  • How the alchemical model offers a profoundly new path to true health and well-being
  • An array of practices for removing the barriers that block our own healing energy
  • An invitation to alchemical “dream work” as a support on the path of healing

Lorie Eve Dechar holds a Master's Degree in Acupuncture from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute in Columbia, MD, 1985. Lorie has trained in Jungian and Gestalt psychotherapy, is a certified Focusing-oriented psychotherapist, and has become recognized as a modern interpreter of classical Taoist practice
