|Alchemist traveler found herself in Nigeria, December 21, 2016.|
The city of Lagos has changed! I was there after the Biafran war; and it was dangerous, dirty and exciting because the after taste of war is the slight stench of women reliving horror and men trying to restore something they lost: personal power. Men armed with their weapons were loosely organized bandits robbing their own people, raping women; in short, maintaining the sound of terror as a means to a self-centered end! - Gregory E.

Living The Alchemist is a movement rooted in the lessons learned in the book. We travel to a country, state, or place that we feel our spirit is drawn to. The most invigorating part about our journey’s are we solely depend on our intuition and connection with people for transportation, shelter, and food... ~ Living The Alchemist
I have to admit to being stunned that Black Americans, for one read the Alchemist, and secondly have taken up with a movement to follow energy lines!
To understand this from my perspective understand how deeply guarded and unadventurous Black Americans are in the modern world looking back, at the least, to the 1970's forward. Bound by the Church and committed to the social order of conformity following energy lines, as I always have, was suspicious, indeed. Not much has changed in all these decades so understand why I am intrigued, delighted and proud of the Black Americans' who have regained an ancient way of travel! - Gregory E.
