Benjamin Turale – Director

In front of the Alchemy Guild Portal in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic.

I am an initiated alchemist, a fully qualified registered counsellor and a clinical supervisor of therapists in the holistic field.  I use the best of both modern and ancient techniques so my clients can achieve change, integration and balance.  This occurs on all three levels – Body, Soul and Spirit.  To find out more about the kinds of people I help, click here.

I also serve on the board of the International Alchemy Guild as Director of Education.  The International Alchemy Guild is an Esoteric organisation.  It traces its origins back to the Renaissance and the Court of Emperor Rudolf II in Prague.  I occasionally run workshops in alchemy and events teaching Hermetics such as the 2018 Alchemy Guild Conference.  I work part time in Melbourne as a university counselling lecturer.  I also compose and perform live ambient electronic music as Primum Ens.  My professional training includes:

Master of Counselling (UTAS)
Certificate IV Training and Education
Certificate in Professional Supervision
Diploma of Alchemy (International Alchemy Guild)
Diploma Transpersonal Counselling (Phoenix Institute of Victoria)
Diploma Transpersonal Art Therapy (Phoenix Institute of Victoria)

How is alchemy useful and how is it relevant to our lives today?
