What is Global Alchemy?

Two useful definitions of Global Alchemy:

Global Alchemy is the art and science of becoming the change you want to see in the world and expressing that into the world through heart centered visionary engagement with it.

Global Alchemy is the art and science of transforming the way humans exist upon this planet. This includes the humans themselves, their relationships and interactions with each other and their relationship to and interaction with all life and the environment.

Both of these definitions show Global Alchemy to be concerned with two interdependent arenas – Personal Alchemy and Systems Alchemy.

Personal Alchemy is concerned with the transformation of the humans themselves and is the basic unit for transformation. It only takes one person in a system to initiate transformation of a system but unless the process of transformation transforms the people who manage and perpetuate the system, it can not be sustained. In the words of Gandhi “We must become the change we want to see in the world”

Systems Alchemy is concerned with the transformation of the systems and structures that shape our relationships to and interactions with each other and the environment. This includes (in no particular order) governments, politics, commerce, business, education, media, judicial process, agriculture, industry, wealth distribution, technology, family, community, culture, entertainment, housing, construction, science, economics, and international relations.
