  • To preserve and continue the traditional teachings of spagyrics and alchemy.
  • To support Guild members in their practical and spiritual work in alchemy.
  • To provide a legitimate source of initiation into the mysteries of alchemy.
  • To promote, support, and provide for the education and mentorship of future alchemists.
  • To serve as a repository of alchemical knowledge both ancient and modern.
  • To release alchemical knowledge to the general public at appropriate times.
  • To provide a forum for the exchange of techniques and discoveries in the ethical pursuit of alchemical arts and sciences.
  • To seek the quintessential role of humanity within the light of Nature. 

image002.jpgThe traditional organizational structure of the Alchemy Guild was based on the three pillars of the kabalistic Tree of Life (shown at left). While this kabbalistic organization is no longer used in modern corporate structure, it is present everywhere if the basic energetic structure is revealed.

It is worth reviewing this ancient structuring in that it reveals the basic dynamics present in any organization. In operational terms, the upper triad of Kether- Binah-Chokmah represents the Directors who are considered the "Keepers of the Flame." Their mission is to hold all members, activities, and publications of the Guild to the highest standards in accord with the traditional European vision of the Great Work.

The Alchemy Guild Governors was composed of members representing the functions of Geburah, Chesed, Hod, and Netzach. The Board of Governors was created to act as an informal advisory panel to the Steering Committee. The ideal group of advisors embodies all the conflicting energies of the membership. Geburah represents the strategic negative, complaining, or contractive opinions of the membership, while Chesod represents the strategic positive, praising, or expansive opinions of the membership. Hod representing the auditing or accountant function and the practical need for marketing and recruitment. Netzach represents the body of volunteers and membership director who carry out the daily work and projects of the Guild.

In the old kabbalistic organization of the Guild, the central pillar represents the expressions of First Matter as it manifests to form the Guild body. Kether (Light) is the mystical Source of Light that guides Guild intention and activities. Daath (Wisdom) is the accumulated knowledge and archives of the Guild that is part of a hidden Underground River of wisdom that flows unbroken from ancient times. The Tiphareth (Gerneral Membership) is the heart of the Guild, its diverse and dedicated membership. Yesod (LIfeforce) is the imagination, work, and determination that members give the Guild to keep it alive and functioning in the Great Work. Malkuth (Endowment) is the fundamental requirement of membership dues, donations, sales, and physical buildings and meeting places to create the physical presence of the Guild in the created world.
