Vision

Alchemical Courtyard provides wellness services, educational opportunities and exposure to life's abundant diversity. Alchemical Courtyard was founded in 2003 to bring an inclusive orientation to whatever we do. We see an inclusive orientation to be the inclusion of all perspectives into the consideration of any discussion or exploration. And when a discussion or exploration is focused on one perspective, an inclusive orientation maintains consideration that only one perspective is present in that moment.

The world is vast and the number of philosophies, concepts, systems and practices within our vast world are abundant. They have emerged through time and new ideas continue to spring from the creative expressions of people across the globe. They arise to speak to particular audiences at specific times in history. They have their own motivations and intentions and touch the world in their own way. Some remain over time and some fade away. Some are consistent in their message and practices and some have morphed or evolved. Some are ancient and some are new interpretations of older ideas. The beauty in the diversity can be seen and experienced by all.

We realize that all people from all cultures have their own unique conglomerate of circumstances leading to their present day conditions. And with the enormous amounts of philosophies, concepts, systems and practices at our disposal, there is something to speak to the heart and soul of each individual from the space within themselves in which they reside at any given moment. Alchemical Courtyard's commitment is to carry respect for each human's journey and the preciousness of the opportunity to share in that journey with another. We take that privilege to heart and thus, seek to maintain our inclusive orientation with all we do, and to honor the multitude of perspectives as best we can, and as often as we can.

With this goal at hand, we often see ourselves as a museum of humanity. An interactive museum of humanity that explore life's many facets and many perspectives, and provides a platform to learn about life, about ourselves, and in the process of exploration, to better live life on our own terms. The result is a life inspired by passion that thrives with vitality and wellness. Living life on our own terms is not defiant, but rather the greatest service we can provide for the world. It leads to living from passion and fulfillment, which leads to vitality. A life of vitality leads to inspiring the desire for vitality in others. We help by helping others to help. We help by inspiring the spark in others who then go on to ignite vitality wherever they go.

At its best, Alchemical Courtyard provides health, healing, education and refuge to people looking for a greater state of wellness and a deeper experience of themselves in the world.
