Elemental alchemy…

Elemental Alchemy is a form of Qi Gong + Energy Medicine that creates a powerful understanding of our chi (energy) flows. It gives us ways to tap into vibrational medicine. It helps us refine and enliven the intrinsic healing potential for ourselves, for others and the planet. It enables us to live with optimum vitality. It is a blend of Elemental Chi Kung, Energy Medicine practices, and plant medicine.

We are a blend of two vital harmonics - Elementals and Alchemy.

Each harmonic series has five essential ingredients that work together:

Elemental series  -  Fire, Metal, Water, Earth + Wood.
Alchemy  series -  Deeper chi flows including Five Elements, Central Channels, Dragon forms, Internal Alchemy, Internal and External Fields + chi kung for healing.

Each module works with Qi Gong forms, an understanding of the meridians, physical applications  and plant and energy medicine.

Workshops can be taken individually or together as a series for your own depth of practice or to become a teacher.
Taken as a series over the two years, you will experience a deep and profound cleansing and rejuvenation of your whole self as we move through the elements
(including organs and meridians for each element) and then into the deeper chi flows of the alchemy series.

As part of these modules, using Willa's knowledge as a medicine woman, we tap into plant medicine and essential oils for each element - using all our senses to unlock powerful healing and rejuvenation.

There are several ways to dive in:

* Weekly classes in Elemental Qi Gong at SOUL CENTRE

* Private Qi Gong sessions - tailored to your healing potential

* Single module/s

* Self-Practice Certificate in Qi Gong - 10 modules

* Teacher Training - 10 modules + homework

* Alchemist - 20 modules + homework  plus alchemy mentorship


“I am officially blow away by the depth, potency and subtlety of this weekend’s Chi Kung retreat with Willa. Refined yet simple and accessible movement, flow, laughter and tears, in between ample bouts of nourishing food chi, this transformative practice has been a revelation on so many levels. Coming back for more - highly recommended”

Elemental Chi Kung Teacher Training
through Elemental Alchemy
and the International School of Elemental Chi Kung.

Elemental Alchemy/Elemental Chi Kung is a progressive approach to chi kung that incorporates classic styles and philosophies with modern bodymind and energy concepts. The approach explores body and chi awareness as a way to deepen into our internal chi flow through movement, stillness, meditation and breath. A creative space is sought to allow our essential nature to express itself and bring about transformations. The approach emphasizes the five elements as the foundation of chi kung. the workshops in Chi Kung are an ongoing series that interested participants can enter at any point. The workshops can either be attended individually or as a whole series.

There are ten, 2-day workshops and an annual retreat and the overall intention of the workshops is to present Chi Kung as a way to open to a deeper and richer connection to the life force within the human system and within nature. In particular, to listen and be aware of the subtle power of your health and become aware of movements of chi within your body and mind. 

For those who want to teach Elemental Chi Kung - you must attend all 10 workshops plus two retreats as well as completing additional homework. This must be completed within 3 consecutive years.

“I have been practicing mainstream yoga for a couple of years now. Out of curiosity for other mindful movement practices I attended both the Metal and Wood element Chi Kung workshops this year.

Prior to both workshops I had been feeling a little knocked around by the seasonal change, as well as the demands of modern life.

Not knowing what to expect I was astounded to leave each workshop with a deeply restored mind-body balance and a renewed perspective on current challenges. Specifically there was resolution of some mysterious aches and pains that had not responded to physiotherapy.

Willa had a wonderfully unique approach to Chi Kung by interweaving plant medicine and meditation. The synergy of these practices enriched the workshop experience, and made for good break time conversation.

As a facilitator, Willa’s authentic presence gives you permission to engage with the practices intuitively. I really liked this aspect of the workshops as there was no mind chatter about the precise right or wrong execution of a movement, enabling a deeper connection with experience itself”
