Like all alchemy, Untamed Alchemy® celebrates the magic that happens when we combine attention, intention, energy, and wisdom to transform something into a new, changed, and more valuable something else.
Untamed Alchemy encourages us to actively engage with our experience of being alive and being in relationship.

The work of it comes to life through creative exercises, online courses, in-person workshops, and inspired magical, herbal, and aromatic products.
