Alchemical Healing

During this volatile time, the principles of alchemy offer effective tools to thwart our apocalyptic bent. The classical arcane goal of turning lead into gold is an apt metaphor for the transformation we require now, both personally and globally. How can we enlighten the lead of depression, fear and despair that holds so many people hostage? By what methods can we turn the pandemic of environmentally based diseases into opportunities for a healthier and more fulfilled future?

Click here to isten to a podcast of the latest Introduction to Alchemical Healing with Nicki.

Whether responding to global issues or specific personal needs—whether for physical healing or for spiritual growth and development, our inherent ability to recognize and utilize available intelligence is often underestimated and overlooked. Alchemy is the process of turning the base substance of who we are—the dark mystery of our subconscious—into the alchemical gold of knowledge and enlightenment. Like carbon that undergoes tremendous amounts of heat and pressure in order to become a clear, hard, exquisite diamond, we master our lives and achieve clarity and brilliance through the management of pressure and our adversarial conditions.

Modern alchemy is emerging as one of the most powerful tools for transforming our reality, and Alchemical Healing, the comprehensive form developed by Nicki Scully, is an important vehicle for those who would heal themselves, and others. Alchemical Healing provides ways to weave spirit and matter, to develop communications between divinity and humanity, to transform experience into wisdom, and to skillfully influence physical reality to achieve healing and transformation. It honors the accumulated wisdom of the Earth and humankind, both in written and oral traditions, and it permits entry into the magical realms of intuition and limitless knowledge.

Through Alchemical Healing we consciously enter the infinite depths, prepared to bring forth that which has yet to be put into words, and to expand our capabilities to translate our magical experience into effective healing action.

Alchemical Healing by Nicki ScullyIntroduction to Alchemical Healing Phone Bridge Class

When you register for the call, please let me know in the comment space if you have a specific physical need. I will choose from your comments the ones most suited for demonstration purposes. It never ceases to amaze me how telephone bridge technology lends itself to these demonstrations.

Not only does everybody get it, but I can work on several, or, depending upon the issue chosen, everyone simultaneously.

Alchemical and Planetary Healing Intensive Seven Day Retreat

With Nicki Scully and other Alchemical Healing Teachers

August 15th - 21st, 2014

This year I am excited to offer a seven day Alchemical and Planetary Healing Intensive retreat seminar. We have decided to consolidate the learning process in order to make it more accessible and with less travel required. The processes in our latest book Planetary Healing: Spirit Medicine for Global Transformation were initially created to expand the scope of Alchemical Healing beyond one-on-one healing to a larger scale, where it can affect groups and situations such as environmental degradation, diseases, conflicts and disasters. In this retreat we will cover salient rites and initiations from the entire form, providing tools and experience that will give participants depth, breadth and confidence in their personal and planetary Alchemical Healing practices. This retreat is open to all levels of students and practitioners, as we will study the entire form, including processes and initiations from all three related texts (Alchemical Healing, Power Animal Meditations and Planetary Healing), however, we will be moving quickly through the basics thus students are highly encouraged to come to this retreat having already read Alchemical Healing, and practiced the form on some level. This is also a great opportunity for advanced students as it will be both a refresher and an opportunity to learn and practice new techniques and receive new empowerments. This intensive class is a prerequisite for the Alchemical Healing Practitioner Certification.

Nicki's books, Planetary Healing (co-authored with her husband, Mark Hallert), Alchemical Healing and Power Animal Meditations are used as text books for this class, and can be purchased through our office, here, or at your local bookstore.

The cost of this retreat, including most meals and basic indoor accommodations, tipi or tent space, is $1,388. If you register before May 15th, 2014 you will receive a $200 discount.

The Magical Bonds of Isis and Thoth: An Egyptian Egyptian Mysteries Retreat

Co-created and led by Normandi Ellis and Nicki Scully

September 11 - 15, 2014

Eugene, Oregon, at the Lyceum of Shamanic Egypt
at Nicki Scully's home/center/temple.

Online Registration Here…

In September 2014 Nicki Scully and Normandi Ellis bring their annual Egyptian Mysteries experience back to Oregon. Enter new portals into ancient teachings as we explore the ways in which ancient sacred texts provided the soul with a road map to deeper and fuller spiritual life on the physical, mental and spiritual planes. Learn how the ancients worked with natural laws that enhanced their abilities to create opportunities for magic to happen, and to further prepare us for the next stage of our evolutionary process.

Nicki and Normandi will guide participants into a deeper relationship with Isis, Thoth, and the Egyptian neteru family, through guided meditation, ritual, and discussion. Thoth, the lunar god of wisdom, magic, language, communications, healing, and science inscribed the 42 sacred texts that address these natural laws. He is not only the "teachers' teacher", he is also the principle of wisdom that the gods of Egypt call upon when they need guidance. The legacy of Thoth, found in The Emerald Tablets, implants the seed of wisdom found in many other spiritual systems, such as Tarot, Kabbalah, and the Western magical tradition.

Isis, who learned her magic from the lips of Thoth, embodies the great power of love and desire—the essence of all magic—that allowed her to raise her husband Osiris from the dead in order to conceive their son, Horus, the current ruling god of the Egyptian pantheon. She is known as handmaiden of the god, a healer, a spiritual leader, mother and magician. In later traditions, Isis is known as the Salve Regina archetype of the Great Mother.

This retreat is being held at the Lyceum of Shamanic Egypt, Nicki’s lovely home center in Eugene, Oregon. The pro-rated cost of this retreat, including most meals and basic indoor accommodations, tipi or tent space, is $988 if you register before July 31st.  After August 1st, the price is $1,188. You may secure your space with a non-refundable $300 deposit.

Please note: there will be a limited number of partial scholarships available. Inquire with our office by email:

In 2002, Normandi Ellis and I presented for the first time an Egyptian Mysteries retreat we called Becoming the Oracle, based on work that my husband Mark Hallert and I initially visioned together. This spring, with the brilliant visioning of Gloria Taylor Brown, the next iteration of Becoming An Oracle was published in a seven CD audio program (Sounds True, May, 2009). Please see our beautiful new website,, for a taste of this new program and a sample journey. During this year's Mystery School Retreat, we will enter into the odyssey of the oracle as we explore the relevance of ancient oracular technology in today's world.

Our Becoming an Oracle Retreat is more than a workshop— it is a pilgrimage during which we will explore ancient and modern oracular technology, with particular focus on ceremonies and initiations that heighten your intuitive senses and bring you into alignment with truth, harmony and your inherent divinity. As you discover your innate oracular abilities, you will learn to find answers to life’s challenges for yourself, for others, and for the Earth. During this unique spiritual adventure you will receive initiations into a number of oracular traditions, and begin to familiarize yourself with divination tools such as runes, tarot, palmistry, crystal gazing and scrying. We begin and end in Egypt, and in between we will visit cultures from the audio program, and others that we were unable to fit into the published course. The Anubis Oracle (written by Nicki and Linda Star Wolf, and illustrated by Kris Waldherr), will be one of the primary oracular tools that we will consult and learn about during this retreat. The Anubis Oracle introduces us to the archetypal deities and elemental spirits from the Egyptian pantheon that have come forward to assist us on our journey of transformation and renewal.

The retreat will be held at the Lyceum of Shamanic Egypt, the healing center maintained at Nicki's home, a magical sanctuary in the hills on the edge of Eugene, Oregon. The retreat begins the evening of August 19 and continues through the evening of August 23.

The cost of this retreat, including meals and accommodations, is $788, but if you register before August 1, the tuition is only $688. Register online at Hathor's Mirror.

There are a limited number of partial scholarships available. Email to apply.

Gloria Taylor Brown has a wonderful new website where you can learn more about her and the great things she is doing. Please visit

We wish to create an ongoing continuing education program that unites the Egyptian Mysteries, Alchemical Healing, planetary healing and the new Oracle work, that we can present over the next two years. The 2009 Egyptian Mysteries Retreat will provide an in depth foundation in order for us to move forward with this program. We will post details of the extended Mystery School program in the near future.
