The beansidhe alchemist is a non-profit educational organization, specializing in the technique, The Art of Dream Alchemy, a registered service mark with the Secretary of State, California (69391), which guides students in the process of using their intrinsic perception, as a Dream Alchemist. The beansidhe alchemist teaches students to perceive the dream image, as a motivational force of imagination to produce an artistic form.
The beansidhe alchemist offers an educational practice in The Art of Dream Alchemy, an integrative shamanic training within the following areas of study: Imaging the Mythical Tale, Imaging the Mythical Art, Imaging the Mythical Music, and Imaging the Mythical Somatic Movement, drawing from elements of the dream image, archetypal motifs, and mythology.
Each area of study is an educational technique provided for students to connect with their own intrinsic shamanic psyche. The Art of Dream Alchemy is an integrative shamanic educational practice that uses an alchemical approach to writing a poem, short story, and novel, while offering a unique technique in creating visual and multi-media images, composing music, as well as encouraging an imaginative method to choreographing somatic movements to music.
The beansidhe alchemist offers ongoing courses, workshops and private sessions in the technique, The Art of Dream Alchemy. A percentage of all proceeds from each course are allocated to a scholarship fund, awarded in December via our scholarship contest.
The beansidhe alchemist is committed to educational practices that honor imaginative techniques, which enliven the individual and collective psyche, as well as the wounds of the earth. As Dream Alchemists, we will continue on the path of researching and creating practices that engage the personal psyche with the soul of the world.
