Lindisfarne Books, Jun 30, 2007 - Health & Fitness - 206 pages
A series of gatherings took place in 2006 to discuss the contemporary relevance of the ancient sacred science of hermeticism, or alchemy. This book is a partial record of those meetings, focusing on finding a spiritual and cultural path for the healing of the current ecological crisis.Peter Lamborn Wilson, explores the many ramifications of the alternative worldview offered by Hermeticism; Christopher Bamford provides a broad historical overview of the tradition from the Ancient Mysteries to contemporary manifestations of the alchemical tradition; while Kevin Townley brings a practical dimension, teaching the preparation of herbal elixirs and demonstrating that cosmology and philosophy can become a truly healing path for the Earth.
