Empowering Change

For individuals: starting to bring positive change into your life

We all face times in our lives when we need to step back and take a fresh perspective on where we are. Sometimes that leads to making changes and setting a new direction. Are you at one of these turning points? Are you asking, “What now, what next?” The Alquemy Empowering Change workshop offers you the opportunity to:

  • Invest in yourself to secure a more fulfilling life
  • Give yourself a special weekend to discover how you can shape your future
  • Create new choices and possibilities and explore new directions

The purpose of the Empowering Change workshop is to help people make a shift and open to a new path or a new way of living their life with more meaning.

The challenge

Our workshops are aimed at helping you identify, navigate and manage change through a process we call conscious transition. We are here to help individuals to be empowered to make decisions about their future. The empowered individual has the capability to influence and affect the outcomes of events and change perceptions.

Nurturing Environment

It is important to us to create a nurturing environment in which people can feel safe to share new experiences and explore their highest potential. If you haven’t yet done one of our workshops, the place to start is an Empowering Change workshop and then follow up with a Conscious Transition workshop.

  • An opportunity to explore and experience a range of practices to support you in your personal journey and help you connect with your intuition
  • Space for reflection and community for conversation
  • Personal coaching to develop awareness, explore new directions and accelerate change

Participants will be part of a small group working with professional guides as well as being supported individually at every stage of an experiential and interactive workshop.

The workshop raised many helpful questions and challenges AND provided powerful tools to help me work through these questions and challenges, in my case enhancing my focus and nurturing (my) creativity. Weeks afterwards I am still buzzing from the shared experiences and deepened self-knowledge. Looking forward to my next Empowering Change event.
