Location: Ceremon House
This is a two day retreat at the Ceremon House in Portland, OR.
Spiritual alchemy, defined as the transformation of a certain state of being into a higher state of being, will be the focus of this workshop. We will discuss spiritual alchemy’s origins, symbolism, and its practical applications. Participants will be invited to explore the topic inwardly through visualization exercises and meditative practices.
