Who would benefit from this course?

If you’ve heard of the Magnum opus and alchemists creating and using the Philosopher’s stone to turn lead into gold and grant immortality with the elixir of life, and you want to know the truth of the tradition, then you’ll love the Alchemy Diploma Course.

The course examines the esoteric spiritual aspects and exoteric practical applications of alchemy and discusses whether the two are in fact complementary. With this in mind, you may find the course equally of interest if you have studied or are a practitioner of complementary therapies, which often harmonise the two areas. After all, alchemy was not just about creating the Philosopher’s stone or being granted immortality. It was about creating health, happiness and peace. This course can be used for your own personal development or to add to your existing skill set as a therapist or coach.
