New Alchemy is Transmutation in Spirit, Action and Communication. It is often the alchemic process that is important to us than the result.

Possible types of new alchemy:

Imaginative: This alchemy excites and creates our ideas, conflicts and even prayers in our brains.

Eco: Seeds, soil, plants and animals living, birthing and dying in a inter-related system pulsed by eco alchemy.

Shamanic: This is alchemy transmutates healing through ceremonies and rituals lead by a trained spiritual leader.

Sound or Sonic: The ancient alchemic power of song from cave rants to classical music and rock'n'roll.

Digital: Electronic learning and feeling working with computers including chat text, email and documents.

Community: People working with people: transforming attitudes, sharing ideas and making plans.

Earth: Planetary consciousness building and human evolution on a universal scale.

Note: The above list of alchemies is excerpted from an article by Willi Paul entitled: "Mother, Sun and the Compost Pile" that appears in the April 2011 " MythNow" blog on the Joseph Campbell Foundation web site.
