PRC Talk ‘An Alchemical Journey’ with James North

Session 4: ‘Alchemy, Spirituality and Psychology – How the Art was Reborn in the 20th Century’.
What actually is alchemy? ‘An Alchemical Journey’ is a series of 6 stand alone themed talks that will introduce us to this fascinating subject. The great psychologist Carl Jung was fascinated by alchemy. Although he did not accept the main claims and practices of some of the great alchemists, Jung saw alchemy as reflecting deep truths about the human psyche. In this fourth talk James considers that Jung was far from the first to see the spiritual value in alchemy. Jewish Kabbalists, Christian monks and Rosicrucians, Muslim Sufis, as well as the great alchemists of the East, all left profound teachings on the spiritual meaning of alchemy. In this session, we will go deeper into the meaning of spiritual alchemy. As well as looking at the New Age revival of interest in alchemy, we will begin practical work with some of the powerful seed images of the tradition.

PRC Talk ‘Mysterium Artorius: Arthurian Grail Glastonbury studies’ with Paul Weston
