Seekers, Practitioners and Soulpreneurs: Master Your Personal Transformation
You’ve already come into your Spiritual Awakening. You’ve developed a personal practice, you’ve had some training (and maybe certification) in a Spiritual modality, and maybe you’re offering your practice in service to the world.
But you feel a deeper call. You’re ready to move beyond the realms of “personal development, healing and coaching” into something more.
You are ready to become an apprentice of Practical Magic in order to truly master the process of transformation, for your Self and for the world.
“Michelle holds beautiful space for healing and transformation. I appreciate the incredible amount of knowledge and value that she shares. Her teaching style empowered me to easily understand and integrate the information into my life.
I joined the I AM Alchemy course because I wanted to experience the personal transformation that would allow me to serve my clients more powerfully. I wanted additional tools and knowledge to use in my personal and professional practices, and I wanted to connect with other like-minded individuals who were on a similar journey.
…and I received so much more than I asked for! I can now state with confidence that I know who I am and what purpose I am here to serve in this lifetime. I’ve learned how to courageously be my true self in all areas of my life. I came in with a focus on my business but have found that my health and relationships have also been transformed. I feel more like myself than ever before and I’m connecting with people at a much deeper and more meaningful level as a result. I know that it’s okay to be me and to trust my own unique path. I have been given the ability to shine my light in ways I could’ve never imagined. I am more confident because I know who I am.”
- Tiffany Marlink, Coach and Healer. Portland, OR

“I've had the true pleasure of working and studying with Michelle Hawk as part of her I AM Alchemy program. I chose to join the course to gain a deeper understanding of the ancient science of alchemy, and about Michelle’s unique take on the alchemical process as a system for deep personal transformation. And wow--what a powerful life-changing journey it has been!
Her deep understanding of and insights into alchemy have given me a powerful tool for transformation, bristling with insight and wisdom, all grounded in practical knowledge that I can use both for myself and with clients. What’s more, I’ve come away with deeper sense of self-mastery, something that I have always wanted and never quite found. And all along the way, Michelle has been a powerful mentor, insightful and wise guide, and powerfully supportive ally with a true commitment to my personal growth and development.
I highly recommend Michelle and the Alchemy program to anyone wanted (and was courageous enough) to take a deep dive into personal growth and change.”
- Will Petersen: Musician, Transformation Coach and Sound Healer. Los Angeles, CA

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Alchemy?
Alchemy, an ancient body of knowledge originating over 10,000 years ago, is not only the origin of all modern sciences but also a profoundly Spiritual practice. While popular understanding of Alchemy centers around the transmutation of lead into gold, this belies the core principle of Alchemical philosophy: in short, the transformation from Spiritual immaturity into enlightenment through harmonizing with Universal life force. In this course, we apply the principles of Alchemy in the context of personal actualization and empowerment in order to transform ourselves and our lives to embody a state of grace, harmony and freedom.
HOW DO I COMPLETE MY CERTIFICATION?
Certification in I AM Alchemy is part of the program and is built into the experience. The only requirement is full attendance of all course hours (course hours include online classes, retreats and one on one sessions). There are no additional tests, exams, or practicum sessions outside of the training and coursework. Once you are certified, you are certified for life. You may apply and advertise your certification as you like.
What is the benefit of being certified?
For course graduates who choose to utilize this training as part of your professional practice, certification will give you the ability to share with others your level of dedication to the work and continued education. By achieving certification, you receive a tangible symbol of your commitment to self-mastery and devotion to your practice.
What if I can't attend all or a portion of a retreat?
The in-person retreats and closing ceremony are a vital portion of this work. The retreats include invaluable education and group support time. I ask that you only invest in this program if you can attend each retreat in full. If you are unable to commit, please do not apply.
What is the time investment?
Outside of the three retreats and the Closing and Graduation ceremony, you can expect to invest about 3-4 hours per week over the course of the year. This includes training hours, one-on-one with Michelle, assignments and recommended reading.
What happens if I miss an online class?
Online classes will be recorded and uploaded into the online classroom portal. If you are unable to attend a live class, you must make up the time on your own.
Is I AM Alchemy accredited through a governing body, such as the NCBTMB?
I AM Alchemy curriculum is not accredited. Board accreditation inherently limits the freedom and flexibility of creating a course in practical applications of magic and their real-time relevance in an ever-changing world.
Can I receive continuing education credits for I AM Alchemy?
Possibly. Check with your certification board about requirements for credit hours. Michelle is happy to sign and support you in submitting appropriate documentation for you to receive credit toward maintaining your massage, acupuncture, nursing, counseling or other licensure.
Is my I AM Alchemy tuition tax deductible?
Possibly. Michelle is happy to provide you with a receipt for all training expenses. Please check with your accountant for the best way to classify your I AM Alchemy tuition.
Here are some of the great things that prior clients have to share about their experience working with Michelle Hawk.
"I am beyond thrilled to be participating in Michelle Hawk's intensive transformation program. As a healer and guide, I often don't get enough energy work or support myself with the magical community that I have access to even when I know I need it. This seems to be a common thread for many in my field. I am so happy to have committed to this deep dive with Michelle as she is truly an incredible practitioner.
Michelle's work is so powerful and authentic. Unlike many healers which have only recently come through their awakening to their gifts, Michelle has been doing this work since she was a young girl and studying intensely since an early teen. She brings a lot of tools to the table. More than I can even express here.
She is a pure channel. I dare say one of the best. She is fully in control of her channel. She has brought through guides, Angels, Ascended masters, lost aspects of self and other beings as needed. She is clear with them and not afraid to interact with beings that might seem negative to get a hold on their wisdom and why they are there. In this, I felt completely held, safe and connected.
In session she weaves through the Shamanic and energetic realms while bringing forth soul songs and profound messages. It is so much fun to find a sister that works both a lot like me and in totally different ways as well.
In this program, she has given me so many questions to go over to really dive into my life, what I am noticing, experiencing, ready to let go of and wanting to call into my being. I really am excited to see where I am at the end because I can already feel huge shifts occurring."
– Katherine Bird, Shaman and Transformational Coach. San Diego, CA
“Michelle is a knowledgeable teacher and empathic mentor, energetic and gracious; a lovely person from whom to learn—for what more could you ask if you are ready to take the path of the “high road” as you journey through this lifetime on this beautiful Earth.
Twenty years ago, when I could no longer live within the bounds of my traditional lifestyle, I took a great leap into an awesome mystery school with Master Teachers from around the world, then soaked up classes, workshops and training in Esoteric studies, Ancient Wisdom Techniques, and other healing energy modalities.
I soon started my own business as an “Esoteric Guide” and was on a roll, but I kept getting sidetracked—perhaps lessons I needed to learn, but nevertheless were frustrating! When I was introduced to the I AM ALCHEMY course, I intuitively felt that it would guide me back on track— and it did!
It illuminated the PROCESSES by which we progress in transcending self-limitations—such as lack and fear;
It helped me see my way to BE-ing an expansive force for good, rather than depleting my energies in constantly DO-ing;
It inspired my Spirit, strengthened my Soul connection, and grounded my Body into wholeness on this planet earth;
It expanded my awareness and understanding of the influential Archetypal energies that are available to assist us;
…and I have gained a heightened sense of self confidence, found my voice, and can see the way to use it most effectively!
I have recently completed three quarters of a century in my current lifetime. With gratitude and love to Michelle, I have a renewed focus on my journey toward perfected being—the alchemical “Philosopher’s Stone!” The only limits are those that we allow.”
– Jzonay Reitz, Author and Lightworker (among other things!), Vancouver, WA
"Michelle, I would love to take a moment to let you know how this work has impacted my life in such a deep way. I am so grateful to experience your gifts, and let you know personally that much is shifting in my life. I am feeling all of the deepest intentions we held together at the beginning of this process were given a space to be planted. I will be thrilled as the unfolding of what is meant to be birthed comes forward."
– Jennifer Alyse, Visionary Entrepreneur and founder of the Empowered Event. Portland, OR
"It has been a complete honor to journey with you. My overall experience was blissful. I experienced such Grace, and an opening of peace within myself I have never felt before. The greatest shift that has been present for me is a deep, grounded trust in the Universe. I feel so supported and guided.
I feel you have a tremendous gift in how you approach the individual sessions. In fact, I found them to be so powerful that I had to clear out my schedule for the rest of the day. I noticed tremendous shifts each week. I feel that I am still integrating the work that was done.
I feel that helping people tune into the potent rhythm of the Universal Cycle of Power and how it correlates to intentions is powerful. Imagine if each person knew within themselves they had the power to co-create their reality and be in alignment with the cosmos... It is revolutionary work you are offering, and I am so humbly grateful to have been a part. In fact, it went by so quickly that I would love to experience it again."
– Melinda Essig, Visionary Artist. Portland, OR
"THANK YOU for taking me through such an incredible experience!! It's been such a powerful move. I'm feeling lighter already :). I feel as though I've taken a big step on the path toward working on my big picture goals (that I'll probably be working on for my entire life)."
