2nd Degree Black Belt: Art of Alchemy

2nd Degree Black Belt: Art of Alchemy

The focus of Second-Degree Black Belt alchemy is alchemy. Alchemy is the process of increasing and improving what already exists. The intent is to develop the refinement and transformation of your body and life by taking what you know, and what is considered ordinary and normal and giving greater attention to your soul and spirit to turn movement and living into a deeper and more meaningful and purposeful experience.

As a result of the steps you have thus far taken, the foundation upon which you stand is where you will take your first steps to experience the matter, mystery and motion of your body and life germinating and growing new substance. While I’m not interested in teaching you about metallurgy, or how to turn things into gold, I am interested in helping you enter into the inner realm of spiritual alchemy, transforming what is and arriving to new insights, wisdom, and discoveries. Moving beyond the limitations of the rational mind, linear time, and material phenomenon, I invite you to step beyond the surface world, into the world of the Sacred Alchemist.

Whether you believe you have amazing transformational abilities or not, I do! How do I know this? You, your body, mind, emotions, and spirit give you amazing wisdom and skills. Add to this Nia, and you have everything you need.

You and your life is a great and precious miracle. Both are the result of a long and fertilized process and journey. From the seed of your life, you will grow and transform. From the Art of Alchemy, you will explore the matter, mystery and motion of your life. Through the seed of alchemy - change, we will dive deeper into the fundamental process of growth and transformation through inner development. There, you will find gold!

Welcome to the second-degree black belt—Art of Alchemy.
