An alchemist’s goal is to reach the maximum evolution, the total expression of your potential. As the founder of Damanhur and the School of Alchemy, Falco Tarassaco said, “In alchemy you want to reach perfection.”
Not unlike our planet, alchemy is constantly evolving and adapts to all epochs of evolution. In this exciting seminar we will access, explore and experience a New Era of Alchemy.
The Damanurian School of Alchemy offers, from an alchemical point of view, a fascinating, profound and intimate journey that leads you to investigate the secrets held within human beings and the spiritual ecosystem of which it is a part.
The School of Alchemy offers a path of knowledge that approaches a particular field, namely the “alchemy of living forces”. Here the manipulation of substances occurs primarily in the principle Atanor which the alchemist has at his/her disposal. That is to say your body which is considered the holistic result of an extraordinary complexity; physical, emotional, subtle energy.
Substances and energies which are manipulated outside of yourself are always considered alive. In the Damanurian approach this manipulation outside of yourself results, at the same time, in an intimate transformation within.
You are guided on a journey beginning with an exploration of your potential and your ability to manage it. The result in the end is alchemical gold; the awakening of your divine spark.
Tools and knowledge, unique to our school, will be given to you. Through these it will be possible to develop exercises and personal rituals which, if practiced conscientiously, will open the way to refinement and expression of your magical potential.
Among the processes you will explore are; management and exploration of physical and subtle bodies, deepened use of external and internal senses, management of emotions as a substance, time as an alchemical element, how to build and use magical tools prepared for you, learn to interact with entities that live in the subtle planes, contact with the Elements of Nature, use of magic geometries, learn about psychic patterns, explore the rituals and traditions of Ancient Magic.
In the end, the alchemist is an eclectic artist who aspires to achieve completeness in every aspect of life.You will also learn how social life and art are connected to alchemy. This and more will lead to the creation of “ potions’” useful for your refinement. And of course all of this will be in the alchemical laboratory that you will be building.
