In this live training you will

  • Meet specific auxiliary tools, including Inner Sensing, Flower Essences, Essential Oils, and Spirit Points that can be safely and effectively used to augment the psycho-spiritual effects of acupuncture
  • Deepen understanding of shen disturbances and their relevance now
  • Learn about the principles, tools, and applications of Alchemical Acupuncture
  • Get support to an entry-level mastery of protocols that can be used to address psychological challenges and shen disturbances specific to our time 


We are the healers who are rediscovering and reinventing acupuncture and Chinese medicine to address the challenges of our time. It is up to us to recognize the healing invitations and opportunities hidden in the turbulence, uncertainty, and crises we currently face. It is up to us to vision the new attitudes and create the new practices needed to nourish the seeds of planetary healing and transformation even as we honor and protect the well of deep wisdom inherent in our medicine’s past.
Alchemical Acupuncture invites us to approach our practice as a living, breathing, evolving craft we are actively engaged in creating rather than as a fixed system focused on symptom relief. This introductory class will present tools and skills that will allow participants to expand the range of their craft as acupuncturists. In addition, we will explore how to bring the excitement of the edgy creativity of alchemy, intuition, and embodied presence into the treatment room in order to better meet the needs and support the healing and transformation of the patients we work with.

Learn with Lorie Eve Dechar

Lorie Eve Dechar has been practising Chinese medicine for over 35 years. She integrates the principles and practice of Chinese medicine with Western depth psychology to create Alchemical Healing, a therapeutic modality directly focused on the psycho-spiritual and soul issues of our time.
Her post-graduate work with Gene Gendlin of the Focusing Institute, at the Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy and Training in Manhattan, and nearly twenty years of study with Jungian analyst Nathan Schwartz-Salant bring a psychological dimension to her acupuncture practice and teaching.

What Students Say About Lorie Dechar’s Teaching

Thank you so so so much! It has been a VERY revealing course for me, I felt this connection with Chinese medicine for a long time and it made me very good to see it in someone with more experience and wisdom. I will share this knowledge with my students and treasure it in my heart. Thank you very much!!!!
– Marina García

Thank you so much for the wonderful teaching. I held onto every word. The reminder that “time is urgent, so let’s slow down” especially 🙂 I’ve been practicing that since, and will continue to.”
