Lorie Eve Dechar
Lorie Eve Dechar is an acupuncturist, author, teacher, clinical mentor and poetic scholar. In addition to writing the first and only modern book on the Five Spirits of ancient Chinese medicine, she has worked for over three decades to integrate the principles and practice of Chinese medicine with Western depth psychology to create what she calls Alchemical Healing, a therapeutic modality directly focused on the psycho-spiritual and soul issues of our time.
In 2012, Lorie co-founded A New Possibility, a healing and learning collaborative, with her husband, Benjamin Fox, and together they have since gone on to write The Alchemy of Inner Work (2020), a manifesto for the emergence of a new view of health and healing and a guidebook for personal inner work that leads to global outer change. Lorie’s third book, Kigo: Exploring the Spiritual Essence of Acupuncture Points through the Changing Seasons (2020), integrates clinical experience, etymology, research, and poetic meditation into a handbook for practitioners who are looking to touch the soul through the portal of the points.
Lorie maintains a clinical practice in New York, supervises practitioners virtually, and offers a wide range of learning opportunities for practitioners and patients through her website and community network at http://www.anewpossibility.com.
