Perhaps you've heard that chemistry and Alchemy are related. Or maybe you've read a popular novel that referenced the Philosopher's stone and wondered about the reference. But what is Alchemy really and what do people do with it? Can you be an alchemist?
To answer these questions, this class will comprise of a historical analysis of Alchemy and its contributing trends, an overview of the principles that have found their way into the philosophies of Alchemy, and safe experiments you can try at home. We will explore the Operation of the Sun from the Emerald Tablet and the philosopher's stone it produces, Taoist Alchemy, Alchemy's influences on Western Occultism, the Spiritual Alchemy practiced by the Rosencrustians, and the symbols of Alchemy studied by Carl Jung.
The class will cover both basic points and minute trivia, and is sure to suit both the newly curious and the Mercurial Adept. The presentation will include diagrams and pictures, instructions for your own activities, descriptions of tools, handouts, as well as sources and reading lists. Please come with questions.
