4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting blend of healing modalities 9 Dec 2003
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This interesting work combines the techniques of energy healing and shamanism with alchemical principles in order to provide a practical guide to physical treatment, psychological counselling and spiritual transformation.
Many disciplines are integrated into the author’s healing modality, including Reiki, Huna, elements, symbols and archetypes, plants, crystals, sound and colour healing. Distance healing and psychic protection are also discussed.
Other interesting topics include the ethics of healing, the blending of traditions, self-healing (especially where the healer is concerned), psychic surgery an how to obtain help from the spirit realm. There are many exercises meditations and attunements throughout the book that teach the healer or prospective healer how to access the universal life force.
Alchemical Healing is a very thorough investigation of and guide to holistic healing that provides a cohesive programme despite drawing on so many different traditions and techniques. The book contains black and white illustrations and concludes with two appendices and an index.

5.0 out of 5 stars a practical guide, great stories. 7 Feb 2004
By Roland Barker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book represents an amazing feat of synthesis and inspired understanding. What Nicki Scully has created with her Alchemical Healing work, drawing from the wisdom traditions of Ancient Egypt and Native America (and others, such as Reiki and Huna) is a comprehensive and integrated school of energetic healing and transformative inner work. This is not some trendy new age amalgam, but a lifework emerging from decades of dedicated practice, life experience and intuitive inquiry. The book is filled with Nicki's amazing experiences and applications of the work, and the moving stories of how this work came to her through life experience, master teachers and spirit guides.
Most importantly, this book is a practical guide containing exercises, practices, initiations and techniques for energetic healing that anyone can do. The initiations are a key (and in my experience, rare) feature of the book- simple rituals, when followed with conscious intention, that open doors to perception and energy, as well as forge inner connections to your own totems and guides. I can say from experience that these initiations create effective channels of communication and turn on energetic capabilities that persist and become reliable tools for all kinds of inner work. If you are interested in empowering your spiritual work with practical tools that go way beyond the merely psychological, this book can hook you up. For those unfamiliar with working with inner guidance, these initiations will be a revelation to the knowledge that more and more of us are awakening to: we have wise, compassionate, loving help available to us. We have spiritual companionship and partnership available to us.
Alchemical Healing covers a broad array of topics from basic healing techniques using the Universal Life Force, the Elements, and Spirit Allies. Self-preparation for the healer, including the initiations, invocations and forgiveness- a necessary step to releasing unhealthy attachments- are all fully covered. A large chapter covering specific techniques and application of the work as well as a truly essential chapter on healing ethics to round out the basic healing course. The advanced course introduces you to Thoth's Caduceus, the non-physical element Akasha, healing with sound and music, advanced practical techniques and self-healing. The final section gives you the spiritual heart of the work, which can be summarized as guidance, gratitude, compassion and love. Further, if you wish to work more deeply with Alchemical Healing, there is a list of authorized teachers and healers at the back of the book.
Clearly, I am impressed with and highly recommend this book, especially to those dedicated to a spiritual path and healers of all kinds. I have had a long-standing relationship to this work (as one of many collaborators to it's development), and it has been of inestimable value to my path of dedication to Spirit. It is an advanced work, that while clearly and non-technically written, might be too expansive for some new to spirituality. It challenges many cultural and religious axioms, but that is part of what makes it a pithy, substantial book and not some superficial feel-good that everyone will be comfortable with. A guaranteed mind-expanding read.

5.0 out of 5 stars absorbing, informative guide to healing and transformation 19 Feb 2004
By walks with lions - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
You may wish to acquaint yourself with the inspired writing of an internationally known healer, Nicki Scully. We readers find, in Alchemical Healing, clear and practical descriptions of healing methods we can ourselves learn, in order to produce seemingly miraculous results without doctors' appointments and expensive prescriptions. Nicki makes no claim that alchemical healing methods should replace traditional medical care, however, and she has found that both often work well together.
Nicki Scully's courageous journeys to gain knowledge and practical experience of ancient healing techniques -- coupled with her eagerness to share them with people who can know her and her work through her books, lectures, teachings, and guided trips to Egypt, Peru, and Tibet -- are legendary. She works with healing allies: totemic animal spirit guides, crystals, herbs, sound, the elements of fire, air, water, earth, and many others. For her there is no narrow, right way to accomplish personal transformation and healing, and there are as many ways to do so as there are individuals on the planet. She covers many, but certainly not all, and emphasizes the ones she uses most in her own practice.
Her life's work is now beautifully put forth in Alchemical Healing. It is an amazing book -- electrifying and inspiring -- from Nicki's pertinent and fascinating personal story to healings of critical illness and injury through a number of modalities. The anecdotal stories of healing are often so stirring that they had me in tears.
The healing methods are described in detail, with exercises and initiation rituals for the reader, who may well wish to become a healer after reading the first one or two chapters of the book. The steps are easy to understand and follow, with essential details emphasized to ensure the safest, most positive results for the healer and individuals receiving the healing.
I expect to keep this book within easy reach as a treasured reference and guide for the rest of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Disagree with review from "A Reader" dated March 31, 2004 13 Nov 2004
By Patricia H. Gulbrandsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I wholeheartedly disagree with the above March 31, 2004 review.

I am a physician who is planning to start up my own Energy Healing practice in my home in January 2005. I got "Alchemical Healing" 2 months ago. I read the book in 2 days and found it to be one of the most practical and helpful Healing guides that I have ever had the pleasure of reading over these last 37 years I have been practicing Medicine. I liked the book so much that I flew down to Asheville, NC last weekend (November 6/7, 2004) to take Nicki's Alchemical Healing Part I course. It was magic. Alchemical Healing is not only "what the doctor ordered"..but for anyone interested in practically using the powerful energies of Nature around us. I particularly enjoyed Nicki's Initiation into connecting to and using the Elements for healing purposes. I look forward to using many of Nicki's techniques in my private healing practice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overview - not deep 31 Mar 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Nicki covers lots of ground, it's almost like a stew. A little Reiki, Alchemy, Shamanism, Intuitive work, spirit helpers, etc. She does a nice job of introducing concepts and making the material very accessible. This is a great introduction to a practical spirituality in general.
However, if you have had some experience in a few of these areas then Nicki really does not have a work with depth to make this a really meaningful resource. She does not go enough into Alchemy or Shamanism or the Elements for example to give you insights beyond a cursory and somewhat shallow introduction.
While I have great respect for her and what is trying to do in this synthesis, I feel that she spends too much time on fluff and not enough in the details. She does not really provide enough to successfully give Alchemical Healing it's unique fingerprint as a healing modality.
A great beginners read but not that useful for someone who wants to get into these topics in detail.
As examples see the following books for more information on some of Nicki's topics:
Elements - Healing With Form, Energy and Light: The Five Elements in Tibetan Shamanism, Tantra, and Dzogchen

Shamanism - The Shaman's Body : A New Shamanism for Transforming Health, Relationships, and the Community
