For Lorena, it is all about integrating an illuminated mind and compassionate heart in our journey to authentic self-discovery and interpersonal connection.
Alchemy Pathways services are present moment, experiential pathways to expand our capacity for self-awareness and for soulful connection in relationship.
Pathways such as IFS Inspired Coaching and Inner Selves Facilitation develop and strengthen self-awareness, inner alignment, self-regulation, self-compassion and capacity for authentic connection.
Inner Selves Facilitation is a self-compassion pathway that provides an opportunity to develop inner balance, aware ego and self-compassion. Its ultimate goal is to reconnect us to our inner resources and gifts. This inner alignment and embracing of all our parts create the freedom of conscious choice in life’s decision-making.
” I am excited to welcome you to Alchemy Pathways! This website and psychospiritual pathways are a culmination of my life work and personal commitment to spiritual consciousness and holistic healing. I am passionate about integrating a compassionate heart with an illuminated mind in personal development. For decades I have been in awe of how the healing of one can impact relationships, families, communities and the earth. I embrace all spiritual paths and resonate deeply with the shamanic reverence of the earth and its grounded spirituality. My own healing path has led me to certifications and designations in psychotherapy, coaching, holistic healing with a focus on shamanic practice, reiki and belvaspata. For those who are destined to step into the integration of mind, body and spirit, I look forward to our paths crossing.” Lorena Colarusso
