The Sacred Tree is envisioned as a series of eight individual workshops, aimed at symbolically reforesting our lives, creating a more lively, connected, joyful daily existence through an alchemical approach to key elements of our embodied psyches. The course is dedicated to Anima mundi – the World Soul. The goal of all my alchemical storytelling workshops is to find enchantment in simple, everyday experiences, follow our hearts and let our minds open to unusual perspectives, while nourishing a kind of talent for the peculiar, which restores in us the state of childlike awe, clearing the daily debris of our mechanical existence, reviving our connection to life, its gifts of co-creation with others, and with the Divine. All online workshops will be 3h in duration and divided into three parts. In the first hour I will talk about the theme of the individual workshop, in a lecture format, the second hour will be allocated for group journeys, helpful techniques, and alchemical art exercises. The third hour is for sharing our experience, thoughts, mutual support and guidance.

The workshops are intended for everyone with an interest in alchemical psychology and art – for novices, as well as seasoned practitioners, with an openness to new perspectives. Please take care to book on time, as the online workshop places will be limited to a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 24 participants, so everyone has their own space within group dynamics. The workshops will take place on Zoom, and links will be sent to all participants one day ahead of the workshop.


All workshops will be available for purchase either separately, or as one package, as soon as the workshops are announced. Prices for individual workshops will be €22 or 2,500 RSD per participant, and for all eight workshops, as a package – €136 or 16,000 RSD.
