Practical Alchemy: Path to High Alchemical Arts


This book is for those interested in an overview of learning about what real practical alchemy is, the rewards for those who practice alchemy, and a basic introduction to its potential application as a spiritual path.

Real alchemy, as an ancient Hermetic art, works as a kind of lock and key, which opens the doors to confecting true quintessences for use in spiritual growth as well as elucidating many aspects of deeper and more effective magical practices than many of those currently taught in popular circles today.

Though not a “how to” recipe book, Practical Alchemy: Path to High Alchemical Arts lays solid groundwork to approach the subject of practicing alchemy productively, reveals a deeper path of practical understanding in advanced plant alchemy, and directs seekers toward deeper levels of knowledge in the realms of practical alchemy and magic.
