Description

This class will be offered both in person at the Wicked Grounds Annex in San Francisco, and simultaneously as a live, online class offered through Zoom. Please select SF or online tickets when purchasing.

Perhaps you've heard that chemistry and Alchemy are related. Or maybe you've read a popular novel that referenced the Philosopher's stone and grew curious. But what is Alchemy, historically, and how do people engage with it? Can you be an alchemist? To answer these questions, this class will consist of a historical analysis of Alchemy in its Old World Variations, an overview of the principles that have found their way into the philosophies used to explain Alchemy, as well as an overview of safe experiments you can try at home.

We will also explore the Operation of the Sun from the Emerald Tablet and beliefs about the philosopher's stone it was said to produce, Taoist Alchemy, Alchemy's influences on Western Occultism, the Spiritual Alchemy practiced by the Rosencrustians, and the symbols of Alchemy studied by Carl Jung.

The class will cover both basic points and minute trivia, and is sure to interest both the newly curious and the Mercurial Adept. Material will include diagrams and pictures, instructions for your own activities, descriptions of tools, handouts, as well as sources and reading lists.

We offer a sliding scale, so that cost is not a barrier to attendance.

The regular ticket is $25. This is what most people should pay.

The $15 ticket is offered for those for whom the $25 ticket would be a barrier to participation. If $25 is too much, we take your word for it! Just pay $15.

Have a great salary? Feeling generous? Paying at the $35 level allows us to make the discounted ticketing available to others who need it. :)

If cost is a barrier at any point on the sliding scale, please use the Volunteer List at the bottom of the listing to request a scholarship seat.

So - that's it! Choose the level you can comfortably afford.
