    Why alchemy matters in the human experience with Nick Grossenbacher

    Why alchemy matters in the human experience with Nick Grossenbacher

    In today’s episode, I speak with Nick Grossenbacher, who first encountered and became enamored with the subject of alchemy more than 15 years ago while working on a PhD in late classical and medieval Middle Eastern history. Not content with a purely scholarly approach, Nick set up a home laboratory to replicate processes described in medieval Arabic and Syriac texts. His passion for alchemy deepened through his studies with teacher Robert Bartlett, leading him to explore global alchemical traditions.

    Nick's journey took a practical turn when he collaborated with a naturopathic clinic, developing custom formulas for patients with acute skin issues. This work inspired him to create a company focused on alchemical wellness products, particularly topicals. At the onset of the pandemic, Nick left his teaching career to start Rare Earth Alchemy, where he now fulfills his dream of conducting daily work in a fully equipped alchemical research and production lab.

    We talk about the following and so much more:
    ✅Defining Alchemy: Understand what alchemy is and its significance today.
    ✅Discover practical examples of alchemical processes in everyday life.
    ✅ Learn about evidence-based approaches to alchemy using the scientific method.
    ✅21st-Century Innovations: Explore how modern tools and techniques advance traditional alchemical practices.
    ✅Understand the intersection of alchemy with contemporary medical and wellness practices.

A gem of a podcast, jump in and start discovering!

I recently discovered and started listening to this podcast, which spans an incredibly wide range of topics from spirituality, dating, music, psychedelics, healing and psychology. Yasmeen is an amazingly gifted interviewer and speaker who shares the characteristics of the best: 1) wide-ranging and genuine curiosity about her interviewees and the subjects, 2) empathy and compassion, and 3) eloquence and conciseness in her questions. She asks short, simple, incisive questions and gives her interviewees space to answer. 160+ episodes might seem intimidating but just browse and pick a subject that intrigues you, I promise you will learn something about the topic that you’ll be able to use in your every day life to manifest change and improvement!

It’s Melissa ,

It’ll stop you in your tracks and change your life

This podcast has the magical ability to tell you exactly what you need to hear, in the moment you hearing it. What I love about Yasmeen’s interviewing style is she pushes her guests for actionable takeaways everybody can implement. She asks each guest to drill things down in simple steps. So you leave each podcast with a plan you can try and a call to action where you can read/watch/find more info.

Yasmeen’s voice is so soothing. Her guests are extremely interesting. The energy this podcast gives us exactly what the world needs right now.

If you are looking for more out of life, but you don’t quite know what or how, this is the podcast you need.
