Mens Alchemy

Mens Alchemy

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: 22nd-25th July 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.

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.

Application and Investment

The application process is for you as much as it is for me. I have been running this retreat for five years and each time the people and the processes level up. To ensure the integrity of the work, I check in with each application and check that this is a fit. I want you to have a deep, life-changing experience and fun along the way. Applying isn't about you not being 'good enough'. It's about making sure that this will change your life, forever. Don't doubt it if you feel it. The price etc is in the application form.

Meet Amber.

Your coach, therapist and mentor.

I’m a classic fiery ginger. I come from country Australia and my not so kinder-surprise childhood gave me a skill or two in life that comes in handy for grounded guidance.

I’ve worked with humans for more than a decade and have a love of the subtle art of healing, playing in luminal spaces, integrating and accessing all of oneself to be here right now. I’m as deep as they come on the topic of being a gift to this world and enjoying it every step of the way. I am also not afraid of a sci-fi metaphor or a brilliant pun.

I am not teaching you anything you don’t already know deep down. I can only shine a torch on the forgotten parts of your power and show you how to activate and integrate them into your life.

The more formal parts of my qualifications include:

A Bachelor of Medical Science, A Diploma of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner, Breathwork Performance Practitioner, Yoga and Pranayam Teacher, Deep State Re-Patterning Therapist, Functional Breathwork Instructor and a Practitioner of The Melchizedek Method.
