A little history
In 2015 we attended an event called "On Feminine Ground: The Alchemy of our Collective Wisdom and Strength". It was there that the power of circle, hearing the voices of experts on topics of listening and anchoring our personal power was so profound that we wanted to insure it happened again in advance of a major conference to prepare ourselves and one another for the dynamic week ahead. With blessings and permissions by the 2015 organizers, we took off to create something familiar, yet new. It had to be something dynamic and authentic to the community where we were. We worked carefully with a local organization whom we partnered with, infusing new dynamics, and producing an event that was unique. Collectively we found a name that suited this group and the spirit of the event we had produced and called it, The Alchemy of Women's Collective Wisdom and Power. We realized that it was not only the event that was important and impactful, but the process in planning it. The values of circle principles and shared leadership are not to be underestimated.

We feel that these principles, when applied to any organizing committee, are essential to ensure maximum impact, leveraging everyone's creative genius, engagement and leadership. We also know the event itself is powerful beyond measure, so we now offer a variety of options from experiential coaching to event production.
We systematically elevate compassion in every step of our unique Alchemy System Experience™ within our methodologies, coaching and mentorship, manifesting into the execution of a well planned community co-branded event. Feminine Leadership and Circle Principles are built into every module of our system and our ultimate goal is to strengthen and expand the organizational capacity and resilience of any working group, business/corporations, or groups who work together to improve conditions that are important to them.
We want everyone to be fully prepared to operate in hospitality and generosity, so we practice our methodologies by executing an Alchemy experience.
We operate as a non-profit status.
Your alchemy experience therefore may serve as a fundraiser for your group or organization.
We work with a rich network of strategic partners and advisors who themselves are thought leaders, authors, artists activists and speakers and we work with you help you tap into your local community to bring the right experience for your unique goals.
