Episode 13 - Alchemy & Hatha Yoga: The Yogi's True Gold

Listen Now

Alchemy is the ancient practice of supposedly turning lead into gold. But what if I told you alchemy was just a form of yoga? We hear the term alchemy a lot these days, but what is it really? The alchemical traditions go back for hundreds of years, but they all represent one true aim, which is to reach the pinnacle of human consciousness known as the opus. To you and I, it’s known as enlightenment. Turning lead into gold for the alchemist is the metaphor for transforming our darkened consciousness into the blissful state of yoga. Yogis have been doing this for millennia. As it turns out, alchemy is simply a western form of yoga, one that holds deep mystery and true promise for the modern day spiritual leader like you and me.

The basic principles of alchemy do ask that we turn darkness to light, this metaphorical lead into gold.

In this podcast, I’m going to talk to you about the fundamental principles of alchemy. I’ll cover its vast history and provide you with ways of incorporating its practice into your teachings now.

I’ll talk about the history of alchemy, the 3 steps of alchemy and how they apply to yoga, and how to achieve real transformation.
