Alchemy In Practice with Arran Rogerson

Celebrating the release of the Alchemical Inner Work Guidebook

(who writes here on Substack) joins me in conversation to celebrate the launch of our co-authored Alchemical Inner Work Guidebook.

Arran and I have been creative partners for years, most notably in our podcast, the Golden Shadow. Although it has been on hiatus for sometime, our partnership continues behind the scenes. As the logos to my mythos, Arran’s perspective, structure and approach has always grounded and helped shape my intuitive inclinations and archetypal approaches.

In our discussion, we offer insight into the ideas and principles behind the Alchemical Inner Work technique, then demonstrate what it looks like in practice.
