Live Event on Zoom


Join Lorie Eve Dechar for an engaging discussion on her books Five Spirits, Kigo, and The Alchemy of Inner Work. Themes explored will include alchemical acupuncture for psychological & spiritual healing, turning illness and suffering into true health & well-being through the alchemy of inner work, and the spiritual essence of acupuncture points through the changing seasons. She may also explore elements of Jungian, Gestalt, and Focusing psychotherapy, as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Taoist practices.

The Five Spirits is her classic, and Kigo and The Alchemy of Inner Work, co-written with Benjamin Fox, are both brand new forthcoming titles.

Lorie Eve Dechar's unique alchemical approach to the practice of traditional Chinese medicine emerges from her commitment to discovering a healthier and more integrated way for herself and other people to inhabit our planet. Her background includes a Master’s degree in acupuncture from the Traditional Acupuncture Institute and training in Archetypal Psychology, Gestalt, and Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy as well as stints as a gardener, environmental activist, artist, poet and Zen student. She was also a senior faculty member at the Tri-State College of Acupuncture in New York City and has spent many years teaching at institutes and retreat centers throughout the United States, Canada and the U.K. She is the author of Five Spirits: Alchemical Acupuncture for Psychological and Spiritual Healing. Since co-founding A New Possibility, a healing and learning collaborative, in 2012 with her husband, Benjamin Fox, she has published two additional books, The Alchemy of Inner Work: A Guide for Turning Illness and Suffering Into True Health and Well-Being and Kigo: Exploring the Spiritual Essence of Acupuncture Points Through the Changing Seasons.
