live the life you really want

A Hero's Journey


‘Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid - doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you’
Joseph Campbell,
Writer and Mythologist, author of ‘Hero with A Thousand Faces’

We are passionate about helping people create the new life they really want rather than tolerate the old one they don’t. We offer an opportunity for people to explore fresh possibilities, discover their full potential and achieve their deepest aspirations.


An Alquemy workshop
What do you need for this to happen?

The right environment

The most effective way to maximise change through our programme is a residential stay with us for a long weekend in our beautiful manor house, set in peaceful Somerset countryside. The powerful results that emerge from this immersive experience with a small group of like-minded people in a safe and supportive surrounding are unlikely to be achieved in more conventional and traditional learning and development settings..

The right support

Within this luxurious and nurturing environment, participants are fully supported by coaches experienced in helping people become personally empowered to bring about the changes they want in their life. We tailor our programme to find the right blend of personal reflection time, one to one coaching and working together as a small learning community to meet the needs of every individual participant.

The Invitation

If you have the good fortune to live until you are 85, you will have had 31,000 days of life. How many of those days will have you lived with a deep sense of satisfaction and fulfilment? And how many more days remain to create the life you really want?

If you knew you could exchange a little time now to discover a way to significantly increase the possibilities of living life with a deeper sense of joy and fulfilment, would you feel that was an investment worth making?

Many people spend their time and money on material goods and possessions aimed at improving their lives or in mastering new skills, sports and hobbies that can give a sense of achievement. But how many consider investing in learning the skills to internally navigate the uncertainties of life with grounded awareness knowing how to create successful, sustainable and wholehearted outcomes?

Some others may feel their life is a story of missed opportunities, disappointments and broken dreams and resign themselves to just 'keeping their head down', 'getting on with it' and 'making the best of things'. The number one regret voiced by many people at the end of their life is 'I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me'. How many people find the courage now, in the present moment, to grasp an opportunity to explore creating the life they really want rather than risk regret in future years?

Here at Alquemy, we provide such an opportunity for you to explore your inner hero’s journey. In a tranquil sanctuary with experienced facilitators as your guides and thinking partners, you can press the ‘pause’ button on your life to relax, reflect and allow yourself to explore your aspirations for the life you want.

Give yourself a weekend with us, for the same investment as a few hours with a life coach, and you can begin the journey to the life you really want
