The Alchemy Method

Alchemy is the ancient art of magical transformation. In medieval times, the alchemists were particularly concerned with transforming lower base metals to gold.

Applied to coaching, alchemy is the powerful process of uncovering the shadow stories within us and transforming them into stories of potentiality. In essence, The Alchemy Method is the process of extracting our own personal gold.

By using the power of myth, the Alchemy Method has the unique ability to dive deep with clients without evoking defenses. Finding ourselves mirrored in story, we are able to explore our true and vulnerable selves through creativity and imagination.

Coaches will be challenged to excavate the positive character strengths within themselves to lead powerful and transformative group coaching sessions. The Alchemy Method is particularly impactful in community settings, and coaches will learn how to find and select their own myths to positively inspire the clients they serve.

Dr. Kwame Scruggs, the creator of the Alchemy Method, has been recognized for his bold, creative, and highly transformational work, especially with urban, adolescent males. Through myth, he has guided scores of young men to understand and develop personal purpose in life.

The Alchemy Method is a certification course exclusive to Mentor Agility. The curriculum has been developed in collaboration with Julie Elledge PhD, PCC, BCC & NBC-HWC to meet the highest coaching standards
