Journey through an immersive alchemical process to transmute the pain-body of your family lineage and become the center of an intergenerational healing axis — fully equipped to effectively heal old wounds and move forward in the life you’re meant to inhabit, one that is full of light and love.

 

Conventional wisdom tells us that we can only be a force for good in the world when we have our own house in order.

What if your “house” holds not just your personal challenges, but all those that have been passed down through your family lineage for generations?

We all embody a residue of pain from the trauma and hardships our ancestors endured and the choices they made, and those wounds affect how we walk through the world today.

Do you ever feel trapped in an entanglement of burdens that didn’t start with you?

The good news is that you have the capacity to not only disentangle and free yourself of that weight, but to serve as a healer in your own family. You can transform the environment around you and sow seeds of goodness that will continue to grow and bear fruit for future generations.

Jungian psychotherapist and award-winning author Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone is widely known for her groundbreaking work in combining the wisdom of Kabbalah with ancestral trauma healing. She has a fresh and bold alchemical approach to working with the intergenerational suffering you’re carrying… and finally putting to rest the shadows that are playing out in your life today.

Join Rabbi Tirzah for a profound 9-week journey of compassionate self-examination and excavation. You’ll address the core wounds in your family line, recognize how they’re affecting your psyche, extract yourself from them, and heal them through a unique, highly transformative process that weaves together mysticism, magic, and science.

She’ll gently guide you through the four stages of the alchemical process — as well as the seven principles of trauma healing — to raise the “bones” of your lineage and ultimately bless and bury them... transmuting the darkness they hold into light, goodness, and love.

Through Rabbi Tirzah’s teachings and the many exercises she’ll take you through — meditations, visualizations, rituals, journaling, and other integrative activities — you’ll be able to penetrate the central blockages and traumas of your family to honor, love, and release them... enabling your full radiant self to emerge.

Healing and love will flow freely from you so you can help liberate yourself, your family, and future generations, once and for all, from the intergenerational traumas that have besieged you. You’ll be left with the fortitude and the resilience you need to continue, unimpeded, to better the world.

The goal is to connect with the Prima Materia — the divine spark of your primal self and the sacred riddle of your existence — which we all carry at the root of our soul. It’s the primary Essence of creation, the union of all opposites, the hidden wholeness within... and, when uncovered and brought to the forefront of your being, it heals all imperfect bodies that it touches and serves as the clay with which you can mold a destiny of profound purpose and service.

You’ll be invited to work deeply with an ancestral family affliction, understand the roots of it, and use the power of alchemy to transmute that heavy “lead” into light.

With the help of your wise and well ancestors, you’ll be guided by Rabbi Tirzah to become a healing axis for your lineage, with the capacity to release your wounded ancestors from their unresolved suffering as you reduce challenges in your own life, the lives of your present family, and even those who will come after you.

Alchemy for Your Soul’s Evolution

Alchemy, the medieval forerunner of chemistry, is an art and philosophy based on the transformation of matter. In its physical form, it was used to convert base metals into gold.

Its process was adopted by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung and used metaphorically for self-purification, individuation, and the deep work of soul-transformation — helping people carve out a path toward full integration and self-realization.

Through the wisdom of ancient alchemists, the teachings of Kabbalah, and the exploration of the Jungian archetypes you embody, Rabbi Tirzah will usher you into the esoteric field of alchemy to do comprehensive, transformational healing work.

This work will help you uncover your soul’s true birthright — what the alchemists call the Philosopher's Stone — the mystical symbol for the individuated self… the fulfillment of your soul’s designated sacred purpose… and your achieved Tzaddik or Buddha nature.

This is the heightened state you can achieve when you transmute negative burdens into usable, healing wisdom.

Course Sessions Wednesdays at 5:00pm Pacific

This course will feature LIVE teachings, interactive training sessions, experiential practices, and Q&A with Rabbi Tirzah. Each session will build harmoniously upon the previous ones, so you’ll develop a complete holistic understanding of the practices, tools, and principles you’ll need to release the inherited wounds of your ancestors and emerge luminous and fully equipped to effectively move forward in the life you’re meant to inhabit.

If you have not experienced Tirzah’s teachings before, you’re welcome to join this next-level training but we ask that you complete the foundational 7-module program, Ancestral Wisdom for Walking the Path of the Holy Being: Ancient Buddhist & Jewish Practices for Healing, Transformation & Higher Service, on your own as a prerequisite. It will be included in your registration and can be completed before or in tandem with this advanced intensive.

Module 1: At the Boundary of Science & Magic (June 29)

 

In this opening session, you’ll start to explore alchemy and how depth psychology explains it as a metaphor for a healing process that leads to full integration and self-realization.

You’ll look at symbols and images known as archetypes — which reside in humanity’s shared universal psyche — and learn to understand the collective unconscious... universal patterns harbored in all of nature, animals, and the universe itself.

Rabbi Tirzah will begin to guide you through the cross-cultural, gender-expansive archetypal patterns of the personality, all of which are facets of the Philosopher’s Stone, which symbolizes the ultimate goal of the mystic path — likened to enlightenment, unity, and bringing heaven to earth. These archetypes will be central to your alchemical process.

You’ll start to recognize important archetypes within your own personality, such as Persona, your social mask… Ego, the hero within you seeking its place in the world… and Complex, the place of your original wounding — when you experienced a trauma that became one of your organizing principles.

You’ll also learn how the Prima Materia is akin to the mystical Hebrew letter Aleph, a magical essence that carries the power to unify opposites that create discord in the world and ill health in your body.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn about the history of alchemy as an art, esoteric science, and philosophy
  • Begin to think about the Prima Materia at the root of your soul and how it’s been molding your destiny
  • Look at the meaning of the Philosopher’s Stone as the desired goal of the transformational path
  • Explore the universal power of the collective unconscious
  • Start to understand the workings of your own psyche as you learn various important archetypes within your own personality
  • Experience a process in which Rabbi Tirzah guides you into the ancestral chambers, where you’ll call upon your wise and well ancestors and contact your lineage guardians — to receive their symbol of your Prima Materia... and their blessing
 

Module 2: Coming Through the Dark Night of the Soul (July 6)

 

The basic tenets of alchemy will be explained, as Rabbi Tirzah provides vivid images that represent the discovering and living out of the true self. She’ll illustrate why this process of self-discovery is inexorably linked to tikkun olam — your contribution to redeeming the world.

You’ll learn the alchemical terms and images for the dark night of the soul — Nigredo, Mortificatio, and Putrificatio (black stage, death, and decay) — the first stage of alchemical transformation. Although this stage can be challenging, it’s necessary to experience in order to do the work of alchemical healing and transformation... and birth new life.

Rabbi Tirzah will introduce you to the alchemical vessel — the key alchemical instrument, which must be sealed for the magic of transformation to work. You’ll learn how it relates to Ego, health, boundaries, and relationship structure.

You’ll study alchemical images of the peacock, born of the death process... and the Phoenix, born of ashes. This is the blackening stage in the alchemical process, which rises and glows in beautiful hues of flame.

With the goal of bringing Prima Materia into actuality, you’ll examine the “core complex” of your being and that of your family — and understand it as a reflection of a rupture that occurred and is carried in your lineage.

You will explore the archetypes at play within you and the world around you — Death and Rebirth, the vessel of the Ego (in both its ruptured and whole shapes), the Inner Partner, and the Wise Old Woman or Man within you.

You’ll discover the realized self (or Tzaddik) within you and how it can guide you to the ultimate goal of the Self — the synthesis of your potential as the integration of all sub-personalities and parts that lead you to experience the Philosopher’s Stone.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Understand the alchemical terms for the dark night of the soul in terms of Jung’s psychological process of death before rebirth... and how this psycho-spiritual stage paves the way for renewal
  • Explore the “core complex” of your being and that of your family
  • Grasp how the dark night of the soul is the flip side of revelation and a new dawn emerging
  • Learn what the sealed vessel represents in your own development and how ego containment and boundaries may or may not have been allowed in your family of origin
  • Be guided through a meditation to experience Jung’s powerful teaching of the inner partner, called the Anima and Animus — the feminine and masculine energies within you
  • Experience a ritual practice to enter the Ancestral Halls and seek help from the ancestors who know your family’s darkness — both wise and well and those who’ve been paralyzed, wounded, and stuck in their soul’s evolution
 

Module 3: Alchemical Ritual Lab 1 — Raising the Bones (July 13)

 

You’ll investigate the myth of Serach, daughter of Asher, a young girl from the Hebrew lineage who’s gifted with prophetic powers. She’s called upon to find the bones of Joseph — hidden at the bottom of the Nile River — before the exodus of her people.

Rabbi Tirzah will guide you to find yourself in the story to understand the call of the ancient elder Joseph, who could see ahead that his descendants would lose their way, become enslaved, and one day be redeemed. Joseph entreats his children to carry his bones out of Egypt into the promised land — and so must you.

When you enter the alchemical laboratory, you’re invited to bring with you an actual object that serves as a symbol of your core wound or complex or that of your family. You’ll be asked to have your altar prepared with all the elements on it as well as ancestral photos.

In this process, you’ll use each of the elements to activate your symbolic representation. With the music of Serach, you’ll travel deep into the chambers of the ancestral halls and ask for the wounded and paralysed to make themselves known. There we perform an alchemical ritual to raise the bones and carry them forward through time.

In this ritual lab module, you’ll:

  • Bring the old family bones — the wounded and unfinished lives of your ancestors — to the surface of your consciousness for the sake of your highest good and healing... and that of your family
  • Encounter the pain-body that you and your family carry — the onus of your bloodline’s history
  • Understand the trauma residue and painful programming that you and your family carry from a socio-historical context
  • Realize that deep healing requires distance from the heat and inflammation of the trauma and wounding
 

Module 4: Marrying Your Inner Other (July 27)

 

As you continue exploring the story of carrying the ancestral bones to the promised land, you’ll begin your study of the Philosopher’s Stone — the goal of alchemy and elixir of life.

You’ll explore the first three of the four stages of alchemy and their corresponding archetypes.

You’ll review the alchemical stage of Nigredo (or blackening) from Module 2, which represents the experience of psychological death when things fall apart in our lives. In the language of alchemists, this is the “lead” that must be charred and burnt into black ash.

This stage paves the way for renewal, found in the alchemical stage known as Albedo (or whitening) — the purification that happens when we marry or unite with our inner opposite. For male-identified people, it’s the feminine energies of the psyche, or Anima — and for female-identified people, it’s the internal masculine energies, or Animus.

This inner marriage leads to the alchemical stage known as Citrinitas (or yellow brightening) — the stage of psychological development when you tap into your wise and well ancestors and cultivate relationships with them. This in turn signals a deepening of your soul and access to your own inner wells of wisdom.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Study the first 3 of the 4 stages of alchemy and the facets of your personality that correspond to them... as a metaphor for the healing journey you’re on
  • Be guided through a meditation to uncover and experience Jung’s powerful teachings about the archetype of the Wise Old Woman or Man — the realized self (or Tzaddik) within you
  • Understand the archetype of the Self — the synthesis of your potential that comes with the integration of all your sub-personalities and parts
  • Understand the alchemist term “mystical marriage,” and the state of hermaphrodite — inclusively male and female, integrating both
  • Be able to apply this wisdom to the current broadening of sexual orientations and gender identities
  • Experience a practice, with all your allies and guardians present, to call on the wounded souls in your lineage and begin the work of healing — transmuting the pain-body and laying down the burden of the family onus, preparing to bury it
 

Module 5: The Glistening Warmth of a Whole Self (August 3)

 

The great alchemists believed that we can’t materially turn lead into light (gold) if our being isn’t aligned with the process. No change can happen in the laboratory if it doesn’t happen within the alchemists themselves.

You’ll work with the next principle of alchemical healing — healing our human tendency to fear, blame, and dehumanize the other. Rabbi Tirzah will guide you in reclaiming your shadow projections.

You’ll explore the final alchemical stage known as Rubito (or reddening), in which you find the warm ruby red of the Philosopher’s Stone — your magical, whole, and healing self.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Discover that reclaiming your projections (or shadows) from others is critical to ancestral trauma healing
  • Learn why the practice of “othering” weakens the seal on your alchemical vessel
  • Explore the ways you unconsciously “other” people — and even yourself — casting your own self out of your heart
  • Journey into the alchemical laboratory of old Prague to visit the ancient circle of alchemists
  • Be introduced to the wisdom and twinkling brilliance of your own ancient and ever-new self
  • Work with Ego — the self axis — and discover that when the axis is strong and open it can be a strong channel to the higher self
  • Tap into the inner wells of your soul’s wisdom, which will help you continue your designated healing work
  • Experience a guided journey into the ancient laboratories of the alchemical wizards and mystics — where you’ll be in the presence of your ancestral lineage — and encounter your own internal wizard: your potential
 

Module 6: Alchemical Ritual Lab 2 — Carrying & Burying the Bones, Laying the Pain-Body to Rest (August 10)

 

Rabbi Tirzah will begin this practicum as a journey, guiding you through cleansing breath practices to flush out your right and left orbital hemispheres. You’ll then recite together an ancient chant, Tehom el Tehom (From the Deep I Call to You) to invoke your ancestors as you enter a ritual ceremony in the Ancestral Realm...

... where you’ll deliver gifts to honor your paternal and maternal lineages... and gather the gratitude and acknowledgement of raising and carrying the bones of the ancestors to peace.

During this process, you’ll be invited to sense the different characters and tricksters of each lineage — those who might want to trip you up or put roadblocks in your way — all the while remaining present and grounded.

Rabbi Tirzah will then lead you in a visualization to a sacred spot in nature where you’ll be able to observe how you’ve been carrying the onus of your ancestors. You’ll complete the journey in the presence of the wounded ancestors — where you’ll bury your family’s pain-body.

This is the profound work of facing the wounded in your family lineage, honoring them, listening to them, and hearing their cries.

You’ll be asked to bring with you a bone, stone, or other relic, to imbue it with the pain of your family or lineage wound.

In this practicum, you’ll:

  • Experience a cleansing breathing technique to clear your mind and body as you flush out your right and left orbital hemispheres
  • Participate in a 3,000-year-old chant to invoke your ancestors
  • Deliver gifts to honor both your paternal and maternal lineages — customized to their unique qualities — and feel yourself being seen and honored by your ancestors
  • Be guided in a visualization to a sacred spot in nature, where you’ll observe how you have been carrying the onus of your ancestors
  • Elevate the essence of your wounded ancestors as you bury your family’s pain-body
  • Learn a powerful maxim to transform the wounded into your spiritual allies
 

Module 7: Re-Choosing Your Voluminous Self (August 24)

 

What are you left with now that you’ve buried your family’s pain-body?

Having released the bones to Mother Earth, you need to shed the old story you’ve been telling yourself about who you are.

It’s time to enter new territory — what the myth calls the Promised Land.

You’ll examine the stumbling blocks set in your way by both your inner saboteur and wetiko — the dark forces that trick us on our path to wholeness and tempt us to creep back into the smallest version of ourselves. These forces coax us to dig up and embrace the bones of our old self, so we can feel “safe” and familiar again.

So how do you occupy your voluminous self and embrace the idea that you’re no longer wounded? You’ll discuss your renewed ancient self and your return to the grand vista you had when you came into this life.

Rabbi Tirzah will also guide you in an alchemical practice to transmute the world’s heavy energies of suffering and pain.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Become wise to the snares of your inner saboteur who tries to lure you back from your spiritual gains
  • Examine wetiko — the dark forces that attempt to impede your progress
  • Discover within yourself an expanded consciousness, or big-mind
  • Come to understand the pitfalls and nuances of the superiority/inferiority complex and how you can get stuck in our “specialness”
  • Practice Tonglen, first for those who are ailing today — and then for those in your lineage who died in agitation, trauma, fear, or confusion
 

Module 8: Alchemical Ritual Lab 3 — Preparing to Cross the Threshold of This Life (August 31)

 

As a whole and robust soul who’s accomplished the alchemical stages of self-transformation, you’ll now practice Ars Moriendithe sacred art of rehearsing for a conscious and beautiful passing from this life when that time comes.

A guided journaling exercise will help you explore your personal fears and the negative ancestral beliefs we’ve absorbed about death.

Rabbi Tirzah will then guide you in meditation to the threshold of this life to harvest its lessons from a state of expanded consciousness. You’ll practice being seen and lovingly received as you assume your light-body. Ample time will be provided for gentle integration.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Start to cleanse the fears you associate with your death and release the cultural, religious, and familial baggage you’ve accrued from the traumatic deaths of people close to you
  • Observe your life from an expanded viewpoint and experience a profound appreciation for all that you are and all you’ve achieved
  • Identify areas in yourself and in your relationships that haven’t been in your sphere of awareness
  • Experience the deep love that surrounds you in other dimensions
  • Learn a protective prayer and invocation for the practice of journeying across the threshold of this world
  • Attain a sense of what it may feel like to be a body of light
 

Module 9: Creating a Luminous Legacy (September 7)

 

In this closing session, you’ll explore the archetype of the Apocalypse. The archetype of our time, Apocalypse refers to the great uncovering — a revealing of what’s been previously obscured. You’re now ready to look at the myth or central narrative that you’re living today... and what’s coming to light in your present life.

Alchemical wisdom teaches that in times like these — with polarization and tensions building — destructive conflicts of opposing forces will generate energies deep within the psyche that, while extremely chaotic and difficult, ultimately allow for renewal and revitalization.

You’ll be invited to share with your co-participants whatever’s burgeoning with new life for you, and where you’re energized to apply your life force and sow seeds of new light. You’ll have an opportunity to share how you’re planning to take action and BE the Philosopher’s Stone in the world.

There will be time to share drawings, poetry, collages, or musical expressions of your alchemical healing journey if you choose to do so... and to journal about your journey of becoming an axis of healing — the Philosopher’s Stone — in your family and the world.

You’ll participate in a closing meditation, to bathe in the new facets of yourself that enable you to enact timeless healing, receive and send Tonglen, and be a light in the world.

Rabbi Tirzah will then close the course by guiding you in a visualization of the future — where you’ll see yourself as steady, deeply grounded, and profoundly useful.

In this final module, you’ll:

  • Be guided through a review of the alchemical healing stages and the archetypes, images, and principles you’ve studied... to leave you with a deep feeling of integration
  • Receive teachings about the mythic period we’re living in, and how the archetype of the Apocalypse is the current organizing principle
  • Understand why new possibilities and creativity are available, even in the midst of great destruction
  • Be guided in a profound meditation for the future of the world and its healing
  • Hear a heart-opening poem about the destruction and rebirth that’s occurring in today’s world

How the Ancient Art of Alchemy Can Help Us Transform the Weight of the World

She also offers us the spiritual perspective of a rabbi who has found her way to the deeper currents of Jewish understanding... [Wounds into Wisdom] is powerful in itself but it is also empowering — we can feel how the author has herself lived through trauma, and has even found her way to become a great healer and teacher.

Q: What’s a virtual course?
A: It’s a great way to engage live and pre-recorded teachings and each other from the comfort of your home! All you need is a computer, mobile device, or telephone. If there’s more than one person in your household taking the course, you’ll each need your own connection. We use Zoom video conferencing to make it just like an in-person event, where you can ask questions and deepen your exploration of the course themes.

There’s no additional charge for connecting to Zoom with your computer or mobile device. Please note that dialing Zoom from your telephone is a toll call; your telephone service provider will charge you according to your existing long-distance calling plan. International access numbers are available.

“I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever...”
I had never participated before in an online course. The packaging, presentation, inclusion, and Facebook postings created a wonderful, safe cocoon within which to participate. I’ve never seen a course so well put together ever — not in all the years of taking college classes — and I had my doubts about doing an online course. The wealth of organization and ease of learning materials and support made this fun as well.
— Claudia F., Medford, Massachusetts
