I’m coming to Alchemy because of my intention to be an active co-creator in global change. For many years I’ve had a mission of transforming bleakness into light through my work as a peace psychologist, musician and prison volunteer. But in the past year I woke up to a whole new knowing– that it’s time to play big, heal big, time to flow in the global ocean of humanity by opening myself up to participating in events that support this platform. Alchemy is a resounding yes! I look forward to dancing with all of the beautiful wise souls at this event and playing big together for the betterment of the planet.
