Alchemy & Medicine of the Soul 
A Journey Through the Alchemical Stages & the Sacred Union
A Workshop with Cathy Skipper & Florian Birkmayer MD


In this workshop we will:

      • 1. Distill California Native Plant flora in the Santa Monica Mountain using a Cooper Alembic. Distillation is an excellent example of the alchemical process.
      • 2. Explore the seven alchemical stages and their relationship to distinct phases within the cycle of growth and healing.
      • 3. Identify the different emotional/energetic states that arise within each alchemical stage and the essential oils that can help to transform them.
      • 4. Conduct exercises and experiential work to deepen our understanding of each alchemical stage and the psycho-therapeutic actions of specific essential oils.
      • 5. Perceive ways this work can be used in your life and work.
