Alchemy as Autobiography:
A Personal Relationship with the

Sunday, 4 PM - 6 PM, December 7th, 2014
Each alchemical manuscript represents a particular individual's intimate conversation with Nature in all its many forms - Mother Nature, human nature, his or her own nature, and the nature of situations and circumstances. And yet for me - and no doubt for many of you as well - the ideas of alchemy and alchemical manuscripts have always seemed obscure, confusing, and often irrelevant to my everyday life.
In this presentation, I will share with you what changed all that: my personal conversation with one such manuscript over the past 20 years - the Atalanta Fugiens. During that time, the events of my life have helped me to understand the principles of alchemy and the alchemical process as they are arrayed in this manuscript, and the Atalanta Fugiens has helped me to understand and find meaning in my life and analytic work.
