David Quigley speaks about the Alchemy Institute
The Alchemy Institute for the Healing Arts was founded for the purpose of preparing students to work as hypnotherapists, hypnotherapeutic body workers, and group therapy facilitators. As the latest incarnation of the ancient mystery schools of Alchemy, we return to the Earth an ancient and powerful spiritual tradition of working with inner guides, inner teachers, healers in altered states of consciousness. We initiate our students, who come from all backgrounds, cultures, and lifestyles, into these mystical arts and empower them to take those skills into the lives of everyone their hearts can touch, through the three vehicles of hypnotherapy, massage/bodywork, and the Empowerment process of group initiation.
The Alchemy Institute was founded by
David Quigley, C.H.T., the developer of Alchemical
Hypnotherapy in 1984. It is a California State approved vocational school
located in beautiful Santa Rosa, California approximately one hour north
of San Francisco. It offers week-end and month-long residential hypnosis
career trainings. Our trainings lead to certification by the National Guild of Hynotists.
A NEW CAREER
IN THE HEALING ARTS
Have you ever longed for a career in which you could help others to access the miraculous healing power of their inner mind? To be able to use a technology that is reliable and safe as well as financially rewarding? You are not alone.
I was also in that place. Back in the seventies, I was suicidal, chronically depressed, had a serious drug addiction and a crippling form of rheumatoid arthritis. As an agnostic who was skeptical of religion, medicine or counseling, since none had been able to help me, I was lost. I had researched all the current training programs and intensely studied the area of psychology, ministry and medicine. All that was offered turned out to be too long, too academic, and too expensive and just didn't work for me. None offered a proven technology to help me access my own inner power or set me free of pain and addiction in a timely manner.
Then with the help, inspiration, and guidance of my Higher Self, I was able to heal myself. In addition, in 1975, my inner guides told me I had a duty to bring this healing technology to others. I studied Carl Jung's psychology, Gestalt therapy and the spiritual teachings of Shamanism and Buddhism. I took courses in clinical hypnosis, Ericksonian hypnosis, and NLP. They all helped me create a basis for what has become Alchemical hypnosis.
I no longer have any symptoms of my rheumatoid arthritis; the drug addictions and depression are not a part of my life. I am excited and grateful for each day and the path I have chosen. In 20 years I have trained over 2000 Hypnotherapists in this spiritual science of healing known as "alchemy", which is a unique combination of proven procedures for healing everything from addictions to phobias. Our work is designed to empower our clients to find their "Inner Guides" who are powerful internal resources for healing. We train our clients to work with these guides every day of their lives. I invite you also to join our growing Alchemical Family.
Alchemy has worked for over 2000 people, including myself! I know it can work for you.
The Alchemy Institute has trained 2000 hypnotherapists since 1984. Our practitioners form a nationwide community of spiritually oriented therapists, teachers, and workshop leaders. Please join our alchemical family.

What is Alchemical Hypnotherapy?
Alchemy has traditionally been associated with the transmutation of base metals into gold. The ancient Alchemists made clear in their writings that the substance of their transformation was the human soul. Their goal was the transmutation of the base metals of human emotions and instincts within the subconscious mind into the gold of self-realization. The vehicles of this transformative process were the archetypes, the Inner Guides.
Thus Alchemy can be defined as the spiritual discipline of working with Inner Guides. These powerful and autonomous beings live within the subconscious mind and can guide us effectively to health, happiness, relationships, prosperity, and most important, the fulfillment of our spiritual purpose! These Guides can be accessed through the hypnotic state.
Alchemical Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic process designed to assist the client in working with their Inner Guides to change their lives. Alchemical Hypnotherapy synthesizes techniques from many modern schools of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and Psychology. It includes Gestalt, Regression Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Psychosynthesis and Shamanism with the ancient science of Alchemy as translated and channeled to the modern world by Dr. Carl Jung.
Specifically, Alchemical Hypnotherapy, as developed by David Quigley, includes all the following processes:
