Part One of the Becoming an Alchemical Healer Series

Alchemical Healing requires that a practitioner cultivate a level of presence in the treatment room that enables the client to undergo deep and vulnerable transformation. Leta Herman and Jaye McElroy bring you this Advanced Five Element class from the perspective of Alchemical Healing.

Many practitioners struggle with assessing the Five Elements. We are often coming from an intellectual analysis point of view. Really understanding the Five Elements requires more presence and less mind. This class provides all the assessment information you need to more quickly and more accurately assess the Elemental Energetics of your clients (or another person). Become an expert in assessing the Five Elements in all the beings that surround you. 

Discover a deeper approach to Five Element assessment…

  • What is the Five Element Stack-Up approach vs. the Constitutional Factor (CF) approach (from the Worsley tradition)
  • Learn a new set of diagnostics that we call – “LOVE ACT” (Listen, Observe, Video, Eliminate, Ask, Confirm, Talk)
  • Learn one of the most powerful tools for energetic assessment that is not taught in most programs – the Five Element Walks
  • Discover how to feel the Elements in your body
  • Learn new approaches to assessing the color of a person’s countenance
  • Identify new procedures for assessing the sound of the voice
  • Discover new methods for assessing a person’s odor

Alchemical Healing

Alchemy is a fundamental aspect of early Chinese Medicine. Ancient master healers like Ge Hong and Sun Si Miao developed Alchemical healing protocols, like the Thirteen Ghost Points and the Nine Stages of Alchemy, that focus on realizing each being’s full potential rather than simply healing illness.

Alchemical Healing is a unique approach to healing that focuses on both the client and the practitioner’s transformational process. The Master Alchemy Program will help you embark on your personal journey towards your own radical transformation – a path of self-cultivation, self-exploration, facing and letting go of past traumas, and so much more… It taps into your innate potential to  go deeper into the Mystery of Life both personally and then with clients. 

In order to provide this level of work, we must become skilled in assessing the true nature of our patients and then connecting to them in a way that they feel truly understood. This level of understanding is verbal and energetic. It’s about connecting the circle of your Five Element energetics within yourself, understanding the correlation of the Nine Palaces to ascertain a person’s destiny path, and then calling upon these theories to create deeper levels of professional rapport and intimacy with patients. This method can provide an incredible backdrop to helping a person embrace Alchemical transformation.

The Becoming an Alchemical Healer three-part series contains all the fundamental building blocks for becoming an Alchemical Healer. This series of classes is part of the Master Alchemy Program and the Master Alchemy Apprenticeship Program at the Alchemy Learning Center.
