Editorial Reviews

Review

  Alchemy isn't necessarily a dead psuedo-science.  "The Spiritual Alchemist: Working with the Voice of Your Sou" is a guide to the concept of spiritual alchemy, and how one can enter their own spiritual laboratory to reinvent themselves and open up their spiritual selves for change and improvement. Natalie Reid, a self-titled spiritual alchemist, has taught her methods throughout the world, and they could do much to help her readers.  "The Spiritual Alchemist" is a highly recommended metaphysical self-help read. -- Midwest Book Review

     If you enjoyed The Artist s Way, you'll want to get The Spiritual Alchemist. In it, New Mexico writer Natalie Reid helps writers and artists -- anyone, really -- hear and work with the voice of their soul. The concept may sound abstract or "new age," but Reid uses clear language and simple exercises to cover some basic principles, such as knowing yourself, understanding your beliefs, and exploring parts of yourself you may have kept buried.
     The book came out of Reid's struggles with writer's block and her attempt to find her own unique voice. She fine-tuned the exercises through workshops she has been giving for over 10 years at the annual weeklong conference of the International Women s Writing Guild. The book re-creates the workshop experience, and can be used alone or with a group. It even includes a CD with guided visualizations. Consider using it in your writers group, or working through the exercises on your own. People who have been struggling to find direction will get the most help, but all of us can benefit from knowing ourselves a little better. -- Chris Eboch, author of The Well of Sacrifice --Spring 2009 SCBWI New Mexico News Messenger

In addition to The Spiritual Alchemist, these workshops include Writing in the Mythological Voice: Elevating the Mundane into Myth and From Falsehood to Freedom: Writing our Way out of the Masks We Wear. Natalie has developed a unique method for using the writing of fiction to heal from a crisis in faith.

Format: Paperback
Having taken one of Natalie Reid's workshops, "Writing in the Mythological Voice: Elevating the Mundane into Myth," I eagerly looked forward to reading this book. I was not disappointed.

The Spiritual Alchemist is a dynamic, easy to follow guide for developing and transforming your spiritual self. The goal is to learn to listen to the wisdom of your own soul, which will reveal your true purpose in life and help you overcome your personal obstacles. The simple sets of well explained exercises are designed to connect you to the divine, regardless of your faith tradition. In this connection with the divine, you learn to know yourself, the good and "bad," the light and the darkness. These insights will help develop your spiritual direction and growth. By the time you finish this book, you will have all the tools you need to continue on your journey.

The book comes with a CD that guides you clearly and calmly through some of the exercises. The combination of book and CD is like attending one of Natalie's workshops. I recommend it highly.

Natalie Reid sets clear and easy to follow exercises to deepen your connection to your own spirit and soul. Very helpful and continuously thought provoking. The book takes you on a journey to your deepest self that can be completed over and over as the years progress and you change. Beautifully written with many helpful examples. I highly recommend for anyone wishing to deepen their connection to spirit.

Format: Paperback
I'm not especially into new age spirituality, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this guide is full of practical, down to earth help. We used it in my critique group to help some members gain insight into the issues that were preventing them from committing to their writing, submitting their work, and so forth. I'm sure going through the book slowly from start to finish would be great way to gain insight into one's self, but you can also pick and choose exercises that seem best suited to an individual or group.
