This step-by-step introduction to Alchemy explores its ancient mysteries while illustrating its use as a modern spiritual system of attainment. Cotnoir demystifies the relationship between Alchemy and "chemistry," and provides evidence that Alchemy is much more than a medieval form of psychotherapy. Readers can perform practical laboratory experiments that "safely," and "intelligently," lead to an understanding of this ancient spiritual practice. "I" challenge any reader to find a more succinct and clear guide to this science and "art." - from James Wasserman’s Introduction.
