On the Transformative Belonging of Nature, Humans, and Soul
Adrián Villaseñor Galarza (2015)
Bioalchemy is a personal yet universal exploration informed by the ecological challenges and evolutionary opportunities of our time.
Using the alchemical tradition as main inspiration, the book explores the transformative potential of our planetary time by means of cultivating three interrelated dimensions: Self-discovery, reconnection to nature, and sustainable action.
These dimensions aid in recognizing the inherent potentials of a life filled with the nourishing presence of soul.
Bioalchemy aims to see beyond the dualistic thinking that permeates humanity to recover a deep and enchanted reciprocity between the family of all things.
Explores the transformative entwinement of humans and nature.
Praises the depth of the body-mind in allegiance with the natural world.
Healing for nature and humans arises from the recognition of the intermediary realm of soul.
“This is a gem of a book! Like the philosopher’s stone or the vital elixir of the alchemical traditions from which it draws, Bioalchemy can catalyze the reader into a more full and creative participation with the enchanted and living Earth it celebrates. Villasenor-Galarza’s is an insightful and poetic voice in the emerging field of integral ecologies, and Bioalchemy will be well received by those seeking inspiration at the intersections of religion, ecology, and consciousness studies.”
