The Alchemist

The Alchemist

Recently I completed reading “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. A friend of mine consistently encouraged me to read this fiction book, knowing very well that I prefer non-fiction. I am grateful I listened to her. This book is beautifully written, with many profound truths about life. Many spiritual, relatable themes flow through this book as we follow the journey of Santiago in search of his Personal Legend. Courage, destiny, heart’s desire, dreams, teachers, nature, and love are among the many themes of this book.

Paulo Coelho recently sat down with Oprah on her ‘Super Soul Sunday’ program. Here is the link to part 1. of the interview – http://www.oprah.com/own-super-soul-sunday/Full-Episode-Oprah-and-Paulo-Coelho-Part-1-Video    If you have not yet read the book it’s ok, nothing major is revealed about the plot, but rather it is a discussion as to how this book came to be, and the core essence and ideas of the book. Enjoy!
