Take a transformative (alchemical) journey with Karen – You won’t be disappointed
As host of The Secret Teachings radio program, I have had the opportunity to interview Karen Dahlman on several occasions and her work is always parallel to my thoughts and work that is prior to me being aware of what she may be working on at the time. This book came about in a synchronistic fashion with a spiritual explosion amongst the general populace. It presents a simple to understand view of ‘the secret teachings’ in relationship to the transformative concept of alchemy throughout all of our own lives. Karen explains the categorization of the imaginative/spiritual realm as being termed ‘black magic’ in an effort to suppress any knowledge of these alchemical qualities to the average man or woman. This suppression led to underground orders that kept the true meaning of alchemy alive and well even to this day. She uses the concepts of balance or light and dark, better known as male and female energy, to explain this transformative balancing process. Rather you have read her other works, such as ‘The Spirits of Ouija: Four Decades of Communication’ matters not when you read this book as it is filled with details of her work with the ‘board’. The book overall will lead you on your own transformative journey, you acting as a lump of metal that hopefully by the end will be transformed into a more enlightened form of gold.

I enjoy this book as much as Karen’s Spirit of Ouija. Being a Pagan I can so relate to so many tools and techniques she uses in this book to get you to know your Higher Self and takes you on an amazing and magickal journey to your Inner and Outer Worlds! Highly recommend!

You will love this book!
So much information is neatly packed into this one empowering and eye-opening volume. With her well-educated yet down-to-earth writing style, Karen takes us on a journey within. She’s obviously done her scholarly homework, yet her message is accessible for all. Gently debunking myths and casting aside old limitations, she offers new possibilities for growth and accessible instructions for personal awakening. I enjoyed reading her personal stories as she led us by the hand into redefining and stretching the bounds of alchemy, archetypes, ancient wisdom teachings, gender identity and so much more. Always positive and uplifting, her personal light and good humor shine on every page. This book takes us on a lively romp through history, touches base on a myriad of philosophies, and shares a visionary eye to the future. I especially enjoy her insights and tutorials on the Ouija Board; she is an outspoken proponent on this ancient and valuable spiritual tool. Thank you Karen for your latest creative effort. You will continue to touch many lives and many hearts on this earthly journey.
A Course In Understanding Our True Potential
After reading your third book,” The Spirit Of Alchemy”… I understand more than ever the importance of Balance in one’s life… Mind, Body, and Spirit…. I LOVED learning about the Divine Feminine and the Mythology behind her teachings. A wonderful read for anyone interested in deeper understandings of Soul and Feminine Source…

The Path to Enlightenment Includes Many Trails
This is the second book I have read from Karen and I have to say it is one of the finest pieces of non-dogmatic spiritual enlightenment out there. I would go so far as to say she is one of the finest spiritual teachers around but that doesn’t even begin to explain who she truly is, she is one of the most open minded and beautiful philosophers around.
I am a follower of the left hand path and while many would consider that the devils work, they couldn’t be further from the truth, Karen takes these paths a step further and places them within “Source”.
My paradigms have shifted because of this book as well as her next book “Spirits of the Ouija”. Anyone seeking enlightenment, spiritual and personal growth or are just now exploring life, do yourself a favor and get this book.
I also recommend you seek her out on youtube and listen to her interviews, one of my favorite interviews is on William Lester’s channel, it’s episode #24. Of course all her interviews are amazing…

Practical Alchemy and the Sacred Feminine
In “The Spirit of Alchemy,” Karen A. Dahlman guides the reader on an affirming and companionable exploration of how to reach outward, to one’s Higher Self and guiding spirits, and inward, to face one’s Daemons, and strive toward a golden thread in life that unifies and transcends. She emphasizes the importance of the Divine (or Sacred) Feminine in balancing the forces that our materialistic and mechanistic world insists upon us, which is a significant consideration for those of us of the Y-chromosome contingent.
The most affecting parts of the book, for me, were those relating her personal experiences, both as a therapist and in learning from her spirit friends. They make the more philosophical sections of the book more real, and in fact they achieve the kind of balance between the quotidian world and spirit-based life that is the heart of the book’s message. I have to confess that, like many, I have some misgiving about the use of the Ouija board (based on youthful experiences), but it is obvious that for her it is a beneficent tool of communication. She has me nearly convinced.
Karen Dahlman’s writing style is very fluid and conversational, which can almost lead one to breeze through paragraphs easily, but be prepared to stop, re-read, and meditatively digest her sentences. They are full of wisdom, even verging on the epigrammatic at times. In other words: don’t rush through the book.
I’m still working to learn how the alchemical model she describes can operate in my own life, but “The Spirit of Alchemy” is a fine tool, from a wise and kindly voice.

‘The tree that would grow to heaven must send its roots to hell’ – Nietzsche
California author Karen A. Dahlman is a licensed psychotherapist, intuitive, paranormal and metaphysical practitioner. She earned her master’s degree in archetypical art therapy from the University of New Mexico and has since 1973 been a Ouijaologist experienced in hypnosis and past life regression. She has written four books on her gifts and in this book she sheds light on the secret teachings of alchemy that detail this cosmic blueprint.
As she states in her introduction, ‘This book is about a journey I will share with you as we discover the secrets to you greatness within by means of the alchemical tradition. Within this book, we will explore your path as a seeker, an Alchemist, who will learn practical applications for transforming the lead of your life into golden opportunities for growth and acceleration towards the life of your dreams. We will explore and honor all that has been repressed within human nature, while we reclaim what has been left in the darkness, within the domain of the Divine Feminine.’
What follows is a book that is mind expanding and an adventure that is a pleasure to discover. In order to understand the at times vague aspects of the veiled contents of meaning Karen is opening to us, the book really must be slowly read individually: a summary doesn’t do the process justice.
But the philosophical aspects of Karen’s book she summarizes – ‘Everything is cyclical, exhibiting patterns of death, decay then rebirth. For the sake of integrity, this natural process repeats itself, gaining its momentum and strength form this endless cycle, spiraling up into a greater awareness of itself at each turn. This is evolution at its finest, continually born out of this inevitability of change. Welcome change as it positions you for evolutionary growth every time it enters your life, as change provides the required nutrients that feed your soul.’
Karen offers a history lesson in alchemy dating very far back and brings the concepts into a fresh perspective. Even for doubters this is a fascinating read.

This Book Will Shift Your Perspective
“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.” – William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice.
This book is a very revealing read. I’m grateful to the author and her Spirit Friends for sharing so deeply and candidly their personal and universal messages.
One can merely read this book and gain valuable insight or really take the time to know its ideas and allow activation of a “quiet little secret.” That’s the kind of book this is. It’s not to be taken lightly, informatively, or at a distance. It’s about you. It’s about all of us for that matter, and truthfully, it’s about all matter(s).
Do you choose to struggle or flow? This book will show you why the choice is really yours and how simple (not easy) it is to exist on this earthly plane as an æthereal being yourself, living in mastery of choice through neutrality and the Truth of All; behold the real meaning of All Is One and that which naturally affects surroundings and others, all based on held feelings and beliefs.
This book will also uncover your gnostic rights and what can be divinely borne out of EVERY existing duality should you choose to practice its concepts in everyday life. Again, simple, not easy, and some assembly required.
So change yourself and start by reading this book. Allow your own “little candle” to illuminate brighter and stronger to reveal the help, not hindrance that your darkness holds within you. As the author states in its pages, “perseverance will prevail.”

The golden thread of our lives and that like an Alchemist we can change the lead in our lives…
I am not sure if I would have found this book had it not been for a late night driving habit I have of listening to George Noory and Coast to Coast radio. An intriguing woman deftly connecting Alchemy, the ancient art of turning lead into gold, with the, as she calls it, the golden thread of our lives and that like an Alchemist we can change the lead in our lives into a golden life of which we are in charge. Now, creating one’s own reality isn’t a new concept but using the Alchemist as a metaphor is truly unique and piqued my interest so I bought the book.
From start to finish I found myself compelled to keep turning the pages. Ms. Dahlman it seem uses a Ouija board to cross-over into another reality and receives messages that have transformed her life, which she so caringly shares with her readers. From her imaginary friend that draws the reader into the beginning of the book to a reunion with that very same friend to close the pages on a very insightful and transforming piece of work that lies between.
Do I believe in imaginary friends or for that matter the power of the Ouija board? I’m not really sure. What I am sure of is that personal transformation is real and the skillful way that Ms. Dahlman leads the reader step by step into a transformed life of infinite possibilities proves that Alchemy is no longer an ancient art or for that matter even a metaphor, but rather a modern day necessity for us all.
I’m looking forward to reading it again so that I might find those other nuggets that I most certainly missed. Bravo Karen A Dahlman you are now one of my teachers.
