A vision of Dante's Paradiso

Alchemy and the Ascent of the Soul"

by Special guest lecturer and noted author

Brian Cotnoir

Author of The Weiser Concise Guide to Alchemy

Open Event
Saturday, November 21, 2009 e.v.

In Constantinople June 617AD, Stephanos of Alexandra finished writing a series of lectures called the Art of Gold-making. This work is the synthesis of alchemy to that time and a synopsis of what was transmitted to the Arabs and on to the West. By examining excerpts from this work, we will see the broad outlines of Byzantine alchemy with its more overt spiritual emphasis — alchemy as the ascent of the soul.

In today's talk this idea of the ascent of the soul will be explored from a variety of perspectives and traditions. Please join noted author and practicing alchemist Brian Cotnoir, as he surveys the techniques and methods used by alchemists throughout history in their search for enlightenment and spiritual transformation.
