Intro to Alchemical Business and Entrepreneurship Blog

Posted on the  Alchemical Business and Entrepreneurship Blog

The Alchemical Business and Entrepreneurship Blog explore the application of the Global Alchemy Template to the arena Business and Entrepreneurship. Since this arena is one of the systems that shape our interactions with each other and the environment it is an exploration of Systems Alchemy; the first to get its own blog.

Business and Entrepreneurship is so honored in being first, in part due to it being an major aspect of Alchemical Wealth Building which is part of the core Alchemical Hero Training because it is considered an essential training for Global Alchemists or any Heart Centered Visionary. There are only a few other specific explorations of Systems Alchemy that have parts in the core training. This is because few other systems are so pervasive… (read more)

Intro to Alchemical Wealth Building Blog

Posted on the Alchemical Wealth Building Blog

The Phrase “Alchemical Wealth Building” can be parsed in two ways-‘Alchemical Wealth’ building as in the building of “Alchemical Wealth” and Alchemical ‘Wealth Building’ approaching building wealth in an Alchemical fashion. At first glance these might seem like different things however it is not possible to be an alchemical ‘wealth builder’ without first and foremost being an ‘Alchemical Wealth’ builder.

Alchemical Wealth is the treasures no thief can steal and no moths can eat. It is what you get from authentic inner alchemy- inner transformation. Wisdom, compassion, unconditional happiness, unconditional bliss, true freedom- these are examples of Alchemical Wealth.

One cannot even begin to build external wealth in an alchemical fashion until one at least intellectually understands that no kind of external wealth (be it money and that which it buys, relationships, achievements, “power”, recognition or even health) can actually be a source of true happiness. To the degree that ones aim at building wealth is based on the mistaken belief…(read more)

Intro to Systems Alchemy Blog

Posted on the  Systems Alchemy Blog

Systems Alchemy is the aspect of Global Alchemy that is concerned with the systems and structure that shape human interaction with each other and the environment both individually and collectively as communities, businesses, nations and the whole of human civilization on Gaia. This includes but is not limited to business, education, community, social outreach, jurisprudence/law, government, industry, technology, utilities, science, religion, entertainment, parenting, medicine/health care, activism, agriculture, “The Arts”, construction, design, architecture, think tanks, economics, and social culture.

On the Visionary Heart Alchemy Blog I said one of the main ‘objects’ that it is the goal of alchemy to transform is consciousness. This is true of Systems Alchemy as well as Personal Alchemy. This on some level refers to consciousness of the humans that make up or participate in the system and I will come back to that in a moment. However systems have the equivalent of consciousness…(read more)

The Global Alchemy Template

The Global Alchemy Template is the application of the Global Alchemy approach to approach any given life arena/system in order to discover insights and methods to:

  • Engage with that arena as alchemical practice for inner/spiritual transformation
    • Global Alchemy makes life engagement itself, spiritual practice
  • Interact with others through that arena in ways that support their own inner/spiritual transformation and outer well being - how to engage the arena for the maximum benefit of all.
  • Understand and engage the inner/esoteric dimensions in ones interaction with the arena/system.
  • How to transform the arena/system so that it:
    • Supports the empowerment and transformation of everyone who interacts with it,
    • Becomes integrally connected (or more accurately recognizes and utilizes its integral connection) with all other life arenas/systems
    • Is supportive of a global sustainable human civilization that is rooted in the embodied compassion that arise form recognition of our inherent interdependence.

It is important to note that the first three are individual empowered strategies. That is to say a person can successfully engage these approaches even if no one else around is willing to play the Alchemical game. The final one is a relational strategy and requires cooperation with others. The First one relates primarily to Personal Alchemy though the transformation of the arena/system itself to support this is Systems Alchemy. The second and Third ones bridge Personal Alchemy and Systems Alchemy. The Fourth one is related primarily to Systems Alchemy.

In a sense the template is simply the questions one hold in relation to a life arena of system. If one is a Lawyer for example one would ask “how can I make the practice of law a spiritual practice? How can I work in the legal arena so that I can be the greatest benefit and support everyone I meet in healing and transformation. How can the whole field of law be transformed so that it more effectively functions for the benefit of all.

The first two reflect what is called, in Visionary Heart Alchemy, Core Intention of the Visionary Heart. Core intention of the Visionary heart is two-fold, create the greatest benefit for all beings and to realize our highest potential to that end. This is the “why” or motivation for the engagement with the arena/system and is single most important distinction of the Global Alchemy approach. If the motivation for engagement in any arena is anything other then this two-fold intention then the approach can’t be considered truly alchemical.

The capacity to apply the template is directly correlated to the depth of ones own inner alchemical practice, ones own development as an “Alchemist” - this is why one of the first priorities of Project Global Alchemy is to train people in Personal Alchemy and to create ways to accelerate that training.
