    What’s Alchemy Got to Do with it?

    Alchemy is a pretty loaded word. For many it brings up images of the dark ages; wizened old men trying to turn lead into gold, but this is just one part of a multi-faceted spiritual truth that has become murky and irrelevant, yet alchemy is just as important a tool to modern life as it was centuries ago, and it holds the secret of our own liberation from suffering – what’s not to love?
