Writing of Book Inspired by Training
"As a graduate of the Alchemical Institute of Hypnosis my experience with the school and David Quiqley was much more than I expected. His training gave me the knowledge and tools to become a successful hypnotherapist. I want to thank David Quiqley for his excellent spiritual hypnotherapy training which was valuable in the writing of my book: Journey's to the 10th Dimension (Dynamics of the Spirit World)."
"I highly recommend the Alchemical Institute of Hypnosis to anyone who wants their training in hypnotherapy to be outstanding."

Specializing in Parts Therapy. Ron developed, "Behind the Veil" (BTV)™ a technique to assist the client in learning spiritual and life lessons, answering the questions: "Why am I here? And what can I expect when I am no longer in physical." Author of Journey’s to the 10th Dimension (Dynamics of the Spirit World), he created the trance protocol Ascension Hypnosis™ designed to create a dialogue between higher self and ego to find out what primary lesson one brought into this lifetime and if one has learned it. If you haven't been successful in learning the lesson we find out why and remove the blocks assisting the client to speed up their vibrational rate (Ascension).
Free Yourself of Pain and Suffering
I am a graduate of the Alchemy Institute of Hypnosis of Colorado, certified in Somatic Healing and Cellular Release Therapy. As a Alchemical practitioner since 1992, I integrate Reiki, Qigong, Matrix Transformational Therapy, Matrix Auricular Acu-Therapy and biofeedback with my Alchemical Hypnotherapy sessions.
I use David Quigley‘s Somatic Healing protocols with many of my clients. The results are fantastic! For example, June D., 75 years old, had semi-constant sciatic and lower back pain for months. Her chiropractic treatments hadn’t resolved it. After the hypnotic induction, June’s subconscious mind led her to do hypnotic movement, etheric surgery and emotional release using the color and sound of her pain. June said she felt the imprint of the pain lift, as her whole body relaxed and was pain- free. She called me several weeks later to report, “My pain is still gone and I feel great.” Mark, a client with severe tennis elbow pain experienced Somatic Healing and found his pain dissolved within minutes.
Somatic Healing is effective with many clients to release acute and chronic back, neck and sciatic pain. Other tools of Alchemical Hypnotherapy facilitate the release of stored emotions associated with such conditions.
It is still amazing to me how effortlessly pain and stress can dissolve with Somatic Healing. I recommend Somatic Healing and Alchemical Hypnotherapy training as a life transforming experience.

Success with Somatic Healing and Past Life Regression
"My wife was struck by a taxi while crossing a street on foot. She was knocked about ten feet through the air, from the pedestrian crosswalk where she'd just gotten off the bus. The resulting bruising, pain and stiffness were severe, in fact the whole right side of her body was black and blue. Initially she was barely able to walk, and four months later was still struggling with continued pain and swelling in her legs and leg muscles - and a persisting fear of crossing the street. Physical Therapy and Psychotherapy failed to improve her condition. I had just taken the Somatic Healing class with David Quigley in Santa Rosa. When she heard what I'd witnessed in that 2-day class, my wife was eager to give it a try. I focused much of our Somatic Healing session on the accident recovery technique. Within minutes, by the time we finished the session her pain was gone and has not returned. Furthermore, her fear of crossing the street has disappeared."
"I recommend Somatic Healing and Alchemical Hypnotherapy classes and technologies to everyone. The Somatic Healing class I took was part of my 200-hour training to earn credentials of a Certified Hypnotherapist. The focus of my practice is past life regression work and Somatic Healing. I am practicing as a Certified Hypnotherapist now in Pleasant Hill, CA and can be reached for a free consultation at 925-798-5638, or by email at email@example.com"
I graduated from the Alchemy training 10 years ago. During my training, I cried for 2 days as I processed the deepest core pain of my life, and was healed. Since then I have had a successful practice as an intuitive coach and Alchemical Hypnotherapist for the last 10 years. Im now working directly with high-level corporate executives and managers in top government agencies. I also coach psychotherapists and psychiatrists, and others in a model of business consulting that is based on Alchemical work. I am currently writing two books about this new dimension in Alchemy.
Everyday we went into the fire, overnight we had a resurrection. As the swordsmith tempers the steel by repeatedly placing the metal into the fire, the conscious and subconscious mind must be tempered and honed. Until the time arrives when the mind can become the ally, where one can use it as a sword to cut through the illusion of maya.
The training that is offered by the Institute is not solely for the accreditation of a hypnotherapist; it is to prepare the new therapist through this process of personal transformation. To perform an act of Alchemy they to must have been Alchemically transformed.
Daily I have the opportunity to go to places that were reaching out from the inside to be heard or felt. The most dramatic was the day I was taken to the voice that dictated my whole life. There I got to go to the core reason and saw and felt the very first time of it's creation, I learned how it was formed and why it held me back all of my life. My fellow student that was acting as my therapist first let the voice speak it's mind, then with the ease of a Samurai warrior swung her blade and changed the voice of the saboteur to a voice that now supports and oversees my progression in life.
Thirty days of dancing with the dragon and then you are rewarded with a simple certificate of completion enabling you to practice this high art of Alchemy. The real reward is seeing and feeling the personal change that occurs not only in yourself but all of your classmates. Self-empowered, they can now see life with new perception and awareness. The reward of taking control in their own life.

Somatic Football Healing
At age 13 in junior high school at only 5’ 3” tall and weighing 107 lbs, I became a tackling dummy for a 6’ 2” 175 lb. overachiever in a drill setup by my coach to teach me… something??! The result was a severe injury to my lumbar spine from contact with a stone at impact as my teammate drove his shoulder into my belly on our practice field.
Now, at age 61 I thought I’d checkout Hypnotic Movement while a student at the Alchemy Institute in a practice session with one of my fellow students. Results were immediate and impressive. I seemed taller to myself and to my fellow students. The lower back pain I’d been living with since age 13 was basically gone! Thank you so much, David Quigley, for all you’ve done for me and my clients through your program.

How Alchemy Changed My Life
One of the main gifts I got from using Alchemical Hypnotherapy in my own life is the subpersonality work. Over the last 14 years I have used the Conference Room Dialogue, both the trance and the psychodrama version, to uncover deep seated patterns in the subconscious. A lot of healing and transformation has happened in different areas of my life.
I remember the moment in a Hypnotherapy session when Little Rabia met Alan, the Inner Mate. She is still sitting on his lap, feeling loved, connected, and protected. True Alchemy happens for me when the Inner Guides enter the Conference Room. There is a moment of silence, a freshness in the air. All my subpersonalities trust the guides, and know that deep transformaion is inevitable. I can feel a relaxation happen inside, realizing that I am close to finding a win-win solution to the issue at hand.
Alchemy introduced me to my life's purpose. Since my training, I have been facilitating the personal growth of hundreds of clients, both privately and in groups. I comfortably provide for my son and myself and I really enjoy my work.
Alchemical Hypnotherapy Training gave me a springboard of powerful and effective techniques that helped me begin trusting my own intuition and creativity on which I now rely. One client reports:
"I struggled with insomnia, anxiety, and depression. Carol Small helped me get to the root of my suffering and heal it. Now I have freedom, joy, and restful sleep." (S.G.)
Carol Small, Santa Rosa,
I've had a busy Alchemical practice for 8 years. My office hours are full every week. I already had some skills and background in healing, but the Alchemical Hypnotherapy training gave me the effective and reliable structure I needed to get consistent results with a variety of clients and issues. What made this training special was the spiritual aspects integrated into the clinical foundation.
I've used this work to help many people return to self-confidence by overcoming severe phobias and anxiety.
Mani Feniger, Berkeley,
Alchemical Hypnotherapy training has given me a life! Prior to 1990,I had a steady income, but I did not enjoy my job. I knew computer programming could not be why I was put on this earth.
I decided on a career in hypnotherapy, I began investigating schools all over the country. I spoke to many people who had completed this training. I knew it would be a wonderful experience, but the training actually exceeded my expectations. My training experience was the best 3 weeks of my life, full of knowledge, magic, self awareness and the beginning of my spiritual awakening.
I returned home after the completion of the training with all the tools I needed to handle any suitable case. I spent months practicing on willing participants to hone my skills and to increase my self-confidence. Then I hung out my shingle. Now, six years later I have a very busy part time practice and I love sharing this process of healing and empowerment with those who seek my help. And even though I often draw on other techniques that I've studied over the years, the basics learned from this training provide the essential foundation for all my work. I KNOW this is what I was put on this earth to do and I love being a hypnotherapist! Thank you, David for helping me realize my dream of getting paid for doing something wonderful, satisfying, and enjoyable!
Twelve years ago I was a college-educated, but starving, artist. A strange dream about becoming rich led me to David's training.
I never dreamed where it would take me over the next twelve years. I stopped searching for constant external validation. I became skilled in listening to others and the messages of my own Higher Self. This has allowed intimate new friendships to blossom. As a hypnotherapy practitioner I now experience more prosperity than I've ever known. My friends tell me even my appearance has become more youthful, more beautiful and more self-assured, thanks to this wonderful process.
Now, in my growing practice, I love watching the changes this work brings about in my clients. One new client says:
"I manage money for wealthy people, but faced feelings of inadequacy that were threatening to become a professional liability. In just one session I got to the root of my emotional pain and experienced a new self-confidence. I'm impressed with the sweeping efficiency of only one session with Debbie."
Alchemy has become my way of life. I am now an Alchemical trainer and founder of the Alchemical Hypnotherapy Association of Atlanta. Thanks to the Alchemy process, I am empowered as the master of my life. The dream has come true. My life is "rich" on many levels.

Alchemical Hypnotherapy Assn of Atlanta
In 1988 I left a successful career in corporate sales on a quest for a spiritual vocation. The Alchemical Hypnotherapy training fulfilled my quest. My practice has brought me to professional and personal fulfillment that I thought was only possible in a dream.
I combine Alchemy with Shamanic journeying and the ancient mystery traditions to assist clients in discovering their subconscious core belief system held at the cellular level in the body. By changing this program, they change their lives quickly and dramatically. Clients report rapid, practical, positive change and increased energy and creativity. Just one of many examples:
"Sandra took my intent to quit
smoking to another level. I have found new meaning and direction for
my life now, as a non-smoker. Thanks, Sandra."

Sandra Malloy, San Mateo,
When I signed up for the personal transformation program in 1989, I wasn't seeking a career change. But the transformation I experienced during the training was so profound, that I was moved to complete the training, start a practice and become a hypnotherapy teacher myself.
I am grateful for the rewards this wise decision has brought me. I eliminated anxiety attacks that haunted me for many years and I vastly improved my relationship with my husband. I've lost 20 pounds effortlessly and my friends and family say I look years younger.
But my favorite reward is the privilege and honor of witnessing my clients and students learning to love and heal themselves through this work and then taking this work throughout the world.

A Graduate's Story
Alchemy to me means a permanent internal shift. This is what I experienced during David Quigley's professional training at the Alchemy Institute of Healing Arts. When I finished this course I walked away with the confidence to start my healing practice. I felt the self-assuredness I needed to begin seeing clients and helping them open the doors to their own awareness. My own insights deepened tremendously with the kind of one on one work that was available during the training. Not only did I begin to understand and see others "process', but I was able to experience first hand, my own deep inner changes in a very supportive environment. It was a unique classroom situation in which I am grateful to have been able to participate.
My work with clients began in 1993. I realized I wasn't interested in the smoking cessation or weight loss cases, that my direction went more towards deep emotional problems that surfaced with troubling re-occurring habits, that truly inhibited a person's life process. my longtime interest in dream work also benefited from this Alchemical approach to healing . My prior training of twenty years as an artist, and many years of dance and yoga had also given me a very strong connection to my own creative sources and I could easily tap into others' creative centers as a specialty area in my own work.
My interest in shamanic work has continued to deepen, and working with the Ecuadorian Shamans and healers in the rain forest has substantiated my belief the "the world is as you dream it".
Personal belief systems are the root of the personality and when a part of your life isn't working for you, you have the power to change it. By deliberately intending what you want in your life, you do not open yourself up to others influences as much. Taking charge of your life is exhilarating and to me is the most creative act one can perform; the act of giving yourself total freedom.
