THE ALCHEMY OF INNER WORK

A Guide for Turning Illness and Suffering into True Health and Well-Being

by Dechar, LorieFox, Benjamin

A hands-on guide for practitioners and patients as well as a journey of discovery, a meditation on what it means to heal and live a truly health-filled life, rooted in insights from Lorie's own life challenges and study of alchemy during thirty years of practice as an acupuncturist, therapist, and healer.

Alchemy is the science of transformation - how to change one thing into something else. In The Alchemy of Inner Work, Dechar and Fox examine how illness, suffering, and dis-ease - the "lead" of our lives - can become the "gold" of our authentic selves, and the key to good health and well-being.

Drawing on traditional Chinese medicine, Eastern and Western alchemical traditions, Kabbalah, and Jungian psychologyplus case studies from working with patientsthe authors provide hands-on insights for bringing "the soul of medicine" back into our lives.

The book includes:
- A simple introduction to the ancient practices and principles alchemy
- How the alchemical model offers a profoundly new path to true health and well-being
- An array of practices for removing the barriers that block our own healing energy
- An invitation to alchemical "dream work" as a support on the path of healing

Lorie Eve Dechar holds a master's degree in acupuncture from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute and training in Archetypal Psychology, Gestalt and Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy. She was a member of the faculty of the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City and leads workshops and trainings nationwide. With her husband, Benjamin Fox, she co-founded A New Possibility, a global healing and learning community.

The Alchemy of Inner Work shows the reader, through the author's transparency and lucid presentation, how notions of soul and subtle body are necessary for the only healing that matters, a return to wholeness. The book vibrates with years of experience, and many lifetimes of engaging the alchemical mystery of the creation of a Self that has a body. I highly recommend it to both the general reader and therapist alike.

What a masterpiece! More pertinent today than ever, Lorie Dechar skillfully weaves the timeless wisdom of the Tao into a life changing journey, touched with the intimacy of clinical experience. Combining myth, medicine, and magic, The Alchemy of Inner Work comforted and challenged me, as it worked its way into my cells to transform me, as only true alchemy can. The ancient wisdom classics allude to immortality; Lorie flat out shows us the way. The Tao that can't be told has just been.

Everyone should read this treasure trove of essential inner knowledge. This book is a magnificent accomplishment.

Quote: Caroline Myss, author of Anatomy of the Spirit and The Power of Prayer

True health is more than the elimination of symptoms; it is a reconnection of our bodies with our souls and spirits. This understanding is urgently needed in our world. The Alchemy of Inner Work is a magnificent book, a gift for all who seek to transform suffering and disease into well-being and wholeness, for themselves and for others. It is the right book at the right time.
