An Illustrated Lecture with alchemist and author Brian Cotnoir

A Thief's Guide to Alchemy is an occasional series of talks and workshops examining various aspects of alchemy. The series provides a quick over view and some of the tools needed to study the theory and practice of alchemy through primary sources, the laboratory, and the studio.

This incarnation of the series will focus on the Emerald Tablet. The Emerald Tablet, famous for its declaration "as above, so below," is a cornerstone text of alchemy. A new translation from the oldest known version of the Emerald Tablet will be used to introduce the fundamentals of alchemy. Whether an absolute beginner or an experienced practitioner, each will find something useful for their work. Each of the talks and workshop can stand on its own but taken as a whole
the talks build on each other and culminate with the workshop.

Alchemy is first and foremost concerned with matter in that it takes matter in its physical and symbolic dimension as its starting point. This evening's talk will deepen the understanding of symbol as it extends to the materials used in the alchemical work.

Brian Cotnoir is an alchemist, artist and award-winning filmmaker. Author of The Weiser Concise Guide to Alchemy, the Emerald Tablet, and Alchemical Meditations, he is currently writing his next book, Alchemy: The Poetry of Matter. He has presented seminars and workshops around the world on various aspects of the art.

This is the first occurrence of a three evening and one workshop series; Next events will be :

Wednesday June 17th: Alchemical Methods and Tools both Physical and Metaphysical.
Saturday June 20th: The Emerald Tablet: Workshop
