Our History

Mastering Alchemy evolved from an internal moment of quietness.

A conversation in the mind … a thought.

“There Is So Much More. It is Time to GO Home. There are many paths, however, this path has never been walked before. This is a path for humanity to return Home”.

Realigning, Recreating, Remembering who you are. A pathway tens of thousands have now journeyed.

The Mastering Alchemy Team

Jim Self

Jim Self has been leading for years. At 24 he was elected to two terms as Vice Mayor of San Jose. He was then asked by the President of the US to be the Director of Governmental Affairs for the Department of Energy. He has built, grown and sold three successful corporations.

With a foot in two worlds, Jim grew up clairvoyant, very intuitive and often invalidated by others, like so many sensitive, spiritual aware humans (you?). Guided by the internal wisdom of the Heart, he’s been asked to bring a Pathway into existence in the form of Mastering Alchemy. Not a Pathway of “Truth” but a pathway of Choice. This path has been co-created with Ascended Masters and the Archangelic realm and has assisted tens of thousands to begin to Know themselves and why they came here.

Jim’s deeper insights and clear wisdom have created a solid rail for many to explore and discover their own individual paths of choice, happiness and wellbeing; and to enjoy themselves.

Roxane Burnett

Roxane Burnett creates a balanced place for others to have fun – namely, Jim, and the rest of us! “When I took this body, I could remember where I came from. Home. And what I experienced here was Not That! So I was on a mission to find Home, here in my life. Backpacked alone from London to Katmandu. Lived in a Kibbutz. Explored intentional communities in the US. Lived in Haight-Ashbury. Finally resigned myself to the fact that what I remembered didn’t exist here. Then I stumbled into Jim and discovered I had it all along: Within me. Dorothy was right, “There’s no place like Home.” “
