Spiritual Alchemy Workshop
A Journey to the Source
with Dennis William Hauck
Alchemy is based on ancient Hermetic teachings that were meant to be experienced directly in an initiatory environment. True alchemy is not an intellectual pursuit nor a measure of knowledge – it is a secret fire that ignites passion and inspiration in all those who possess it. That fire can only be passed on in living concepts grasped by both heart and mind to create a new state of consciousness Egyptians called “Intelligence of the Heart.” This process is part of the Underground Stream of perennial wisdom that still flows in our modern era.
The most powerful rendering of the ancient wisdom is in the intuitive writings, coded ciphers, and symbolic imagery of the alchemists. Their practical approach to esoteric energies created a powerful spiritual technology that combined introspection, meditation, and prayer with laboratory demonstrations. Their tireless efforts to unite soul and spirit – the inner and outer worlds – exposed the deep connection between mind and matter that science is just beginning to explore.
This three-day, intensive, multimedia workshop focuses on the advanced teachings of alchemy. Using secret Hermetic techniques, the operations of alchemy, iconic imagery, activated symbology, and guided meditations, workshop participants will journey through the stages of purification and empowerment that lead to the transpersonal source that is the Philosopher’s Stone.
Tools include process handouts and charts, audio recordings, and a full-color bound textbook of meditative drawings (The Mystery Traditions: Secret Symbols and Sacred Art by James Wasserman). Selected eBooks will be sent to participants to help them prepare for the workshop. Everyone will also receive personalized graphs showing the relative power of the metals (planetary archetypes) in their astrological signatures. This information will guide their work to transmute the inner metals into a more resilient golden temperament.
Dennis William Hauck is known for his ability to present these teachings in a way that comes alive in people. While studying for his doctorate in mathematics at the University of Vienna, he completed a three-year apprenticeship in alchemy and was later initiated into a variety of Hermetic traditions in Europe, Egypt, and the United States. He has since translated several old manuscripts and authored a number of bestselling books on alchemy, includingThe Emerald Tablet: Alchemy for Personal Transformation, The Secret of the Emerald Tablet, Sorcerer’s Stone: A Beginner’s Guide to Alchemy, and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Alchemy.
