Alchemy seeks the perfection of bodies, be they plant, mineral, metal, or the stuff of human consciousness itself.
It seeks to quicken and to EVOLVE Nature, faster than any natural process would allow.
In this one day workshop you will learn the Practical and theoretical Secrets of the Plant Path- the Alchemy of Spagyrics (‘to separate and recombine’) as we explore this extraordinary synthesis of Herbology, Astrology, Qabalah, Ritual Magick, Mind-Expanding and initiatory medicines, and the necessary Inner work designed to Initiate and Enlighten the Soul.
In this workshop you will learn:
-The basis and history of Alchemy and Spagyrics.
-To understand and work with Alchemical symbolism and Imagery.
-Alchemical Internal meditations designed to awaken the True Gold of Spiritual Enlightenment.
-A simple system of numerology that will introduce all aspects of the Alchemical system in easy to use and remember format.
-To craft extremely powerful and potent initiatory Medicines, designed to heal the body, awaken the energy-body, and to Initiate your Self into higher levels and dimensions of Consciousness.
This workshop will involve hands on work with plants and herbs and other easy to obtain kitchen equipment. No glassware etc will be needed, though demonstrations of how to use alchemical glassware will be provided.
It will also include the necessary inner initiations, empowerments and meditations to make the system of Alchemy come ALIVE within you.
You will learn to make:
-7 potent initiatory Spagyrics, 1 for each day of the week.
-Distilled, Purified and Blessed water for a range of alchemical purposes.
-To make the ENS of Paracelsus- though this will be discussed rather than shown- (that will be in a later video).
-The Alchemical ‘Oil of Egg’- the single best remedy for burns, bleeding and major to minor skin issues.
Learn the Secrets of the Ancient Masters. Let the Alchemist’s Fire burn within you, and may you come to know the True Stone of the Wise.
