Question: 'How do we really live together in harmony?'

Answer: "It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual. The next Buddha may take the form of a community, a community which practices understanding and loving kindness, a community practicing mindful living? This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the earth."

Thich Nhat Hahn.

About Us

Alchemy Living & Learning:
Who We Are and What is Important to Us

I changed our trading name from Alchemy of Learning (1998) to Alchemy Living & Learning in 2007. We are still wildly passionate about learning but with all the doom and gloom in the world we see it is essential to be source of the way we live and work together and not at the effect of it. We see it as helpful to recognise that we are connected to all living systems and what we do has an impact. Our lives are largely a result of the choices we make. Our work is about supporting people to develop the skills and attributes to make choices that a life enhancing impact.

We want to work with people who are smart, hungry for change, switched on, dynamic, out there, wanting to go places, change the world, get results AND who recognise they need to go deeper, become more self aware, enjoy life, be real, take risks, relate differently and take care of each other and the planet while we are at it.

I work a handful of brilliant people around the globe who feel very much the same and are up to great things. We bring a depth and breadth of experience to large and small scale transformational change, strategy work, coaching, relationship building

What we do

We educate, inspire and resource people to transform in alignment with their own goals and principles in harmony with others and the natural world
