Foundations of Creative Alchemy

The roadmap to manifesting your creative vision.

CREATIVE ALCHEMY COACH

Discover your authentic voice and find the courage to share it with the world.

As a composer and professional musician, I have experienced both the joy and hardship facing those who choose a creative path. 

At every level of success, creators encounter unforeseen adversity and struggle with blocks, self-doubt, and uncertainty. The key is learning to navigate these dark waters without losing ourselves in the process.

In 2016, after a series of significant personal losses—I reached a point of no return—my dark night of the soul. 

In confronting the depths of my own ruin, I began to see the totality of my experience and the gold that had been gifted to me. 

By recognizing the creative potential hidden within the perceived chaos of my circumstances, I was led toward a path of alchemical healing and spiritually immersive creativity.

Over the past few years, I have dedicated myself to helping other creators to transmute their struggles into strengths and unlock their creative potential through inner-work, meditation, and alchemy.

"The very things we wish to avoid, 
neglect and flee from, turn out to be the 
'prima materia' from which all real growth comes."

That which is below is like that which is above, and what is above is like that which is below to accomplish the wonders of one thing.

- Hermes Trismegistus

The Art of Creative Transformation

To many, alchemy is considered to be the pseudoscientific precursor to modern chemistry—famous for the legendary pursuit of turning lead into gold. While the attainment of riches may have been the goal for some, it was not the ultimate aim of the adept alchemists.

At its core, alchemy was the art of inner and outer transformation. As the alchemists refined, transmuted, and purified the physical substances in their experiments (the below), they were also refining, transmuting, and purifying the archetypal elements of their own consciousness (the above).

Any time we consciously create, we’re performing these same alchemical operations. 

Through creating, refining, and completing our work, we are also simultaneously catalyzing a process of transformation and completion within ourselves.

“The generation of all natural things
is twofold: one which takes place by
Nature without Art, the other
which is brought about by Art.”

Paracelsus, alchemist (1493-1542)

Become a Conduit for Creative Flow

Solve et Coagula | refine and recombine

Creative Alchemy is the process of conscious manifestation—from impulse (the above) to completion (the below). When you dial into your highest intentions and bring them into manifestation through your actions, you are practicing alchemy.

Creative Alchemy is a transformative approach to creating that moves you out of automatic self-destructive patterns and into conscious, creative awareness—transmuting the lead of your perceived limitations into the gold of your fully-expressed self.

By refining and recombining the essential elements of your inner and outer world, you become a clear conduit for the imminent flow of creation as it passes through you and out into the world.

You are a channel between the
world of ideas and the world of form.

Adapted from The Book of Tokens by Paul Foster Case

  • You possess a gift that longs to be released into the world but feel paralyzed by fear of failure or of what others might think.

Work With Me

Creative Alchemy Coaching is uniquely designed to cultivate self-awareness, transmute creative blocks, and support you in turning your intentions into actions.

In each session, I use an integrative approach of both Solar and Lunar alchemical practices—creating inner balance and the space needed for authentic self-expression to emerge.

My 7-stage mentorship program “Magnum Opus” (The Great Work), is a complete process based on the seven traditional operations of Hermetic alchemy. Step-by-step, this mentorship program will guide you from creative impulse to completion (and release).
