Biodynamic Alchemy Lecture – Kentucky 2014
This workshop focuses on the alchemical principle of spagyric substance that is at the core of Biodynamic preparation methods.
Given in Kentucky, 2014.
This workshop will focus on the alchemical principle of spagyric substance that is at the core of Biodynamic preparation methods. The term spagyric was coined by the great alchemist Paracelsus to describe procedures for taking apart a substance at one level of existence and reinvesting it into itself it at a higher, more energetic, level of existence. The resulting spagyric substance transcends its natural order energetically. Seen in this way, putting cow manure in a cow horn is alchemically spagyric. But the alchemy in the preps goes even deeper because the imagination behind how to carry out spagyric processes involves recognizing the synergy between the salt, sulfur and mercury forces in the substances being worked with. This workshop will offer insights into these three universal processes at work in Biodynamic practices.
