Alchemy Retreat Upgraded

A rite of passage from self-awareness to self-mastery.
Whatever you have come to this earth to do, you find it in your being, here, at Alchemy.
Whatever healing that's required in order for you to shift from knowing, into embodiment, this is the space to do it.

This is.. Alchemy
Expansion, reclamation,
connection and
deep healing.

Next Retreat: 2nd - 5th of December 2021, Aquilla Retreat, Sunshine Coast, QLD, Australia.

Alchemy is four days and three nights of uncommonly deep healing and facilitates a reconnection to the purest layers of your being.

It opens you to the infinite of your own essence and grounds you to walk with presence, honesty and reverence for yourself and this life.

You will be taken through a dynamic mix of experiences, workshops, circles, ceremonies, bodywork, emotional opening, group and personal processing conducted with the intention of becoming more intimate with all that you are — above and below, dark and light, superficial and deep.

There’ll be plenty of rawness, revelation, deep opening and breakthrough. The land we choose to hold our retreats on and our team provide an impeccable container of safety for whatever work and processing that presents itself.

Yes, I know this isn’t entirely tangible, but the thing about Alchemy is, if you know, you know.

Alchemy is its own rite of passage for any individual who chooses it. It's a multi-modality and multi-dimensional experience. Combining ancient practices and principles of healing and activation to merge with modern holistic modalities of awareness and integration.

You will learn how to lead your life by not just knowing yourself, but by experiencing the deepest layers of your being.

Through the four days, you will practice staying grounded in the heart and meeting yourself so deeply that the path you walk in life is your own and each step is with intention, power and fulfillment.

We take you through experiences that ask you to witness yourself and others with openness, reverence, honesty and love, again and again in different ways. Showing you aspects of yourself you've disowned, detached, distracted, disassociated, forgotten, or never claimed. Inviting you to return back in, back home into that space of wholeness.

“ Exhilaration.. strength .. and release . .. Nothing will ever be the same after you experience this level of personal strength .. join those who have been before you.. trust the journey! "

- Jocelyn Spicer -

We honour the human you, and the spirit alive in us all. There are no guru's, dress-ups or performances at Alchemy.

Your teachers are the kind who walk amongst and beside you in this world. People you'd meet on the street and feel at home with. Leading you while sitting with you. Holding you while showing you how to hold. Teaching you how to teach. Guiding you to sovereignty while dedicated to their own path. 

It's a journey of waking up the roots of who you are and treading with power, heart and clear vision so that you know without a shadow of a doubt, how to carve a path that echoes and manifests from the highest version of yourself with fulfillment and service to the world.

Definitely part of the R-evolution family, Bebe dreams of a world with less intellect and more heart… Less rules and more freedom! A world where we remember our connection to the Earth Mother, to our raw, real, authentic essence. Bebe was born out of an act of rebellion & R-evolution, where 2 souls from complete opposite social classes fell in love back in the 70s & chose to breakthrough their own conditioning & the disapproval of the lineage for their union & dance. In essence her birth was already starting to dissolve & restructure the old hierarchal ways & the illusions of separation… Bringing 2 “other-worlds’ into union, with her as a bridge.

It has been over a decade now that she has helped many return to their own sacred union with all of their colours through her alchemy work which encompasses a array of tools: Shamanic Journey Path Creatress, Sound Medicine Therapist, Embodied Life Guide, Energy Medicine Mentor, Somatic Breath Facilitator, Womb Wisdom Medicine Holder, Munay Ki Priestess…

She is a Wild & Revolutionary Woman who brings in the clarity we require to see through the masks we wear, the conditioning we carry, the shadows we project & the unjust systems we create. Her authenticity, truth & wisdom are her gifts, she anchors a good dose of rebellion & certainly awakens the inner R-evolution Frequency our soul requires to free ourselves from the rigid rules & conditioning we have created in all dimensions: physical, emotional, mental & spiritual. Clarity is assured to be rippling through your temple with Bebe as an anchor.
