Happy Autumn (to everyone in the Northern hemisphere)- we hope you are enjoying this colourful season of transition! As the days grow shorter and colder and the earth pulls her green gifts back into herself, we start to turn inwards, as well. This impulse is celebrated in the holidays of many cultures, our favourite being [...]

Welcome to the conclusion of our series on the spiritual practice of flight and the plants that support it!
In our first article, we talked about the legends and truths behind the witches’ flights, their brooms and ointments, and the tricky chemistry that practice entailed.

In our first article, we were inspired by the season, and talked about witches as practitioners of shamanic flight in Europe. We looked at their legendary flying ointment from a chemical perspective, and learned about its properties and dangers.
Shamanic flight is not confined to archaic Europe, however, and examples of the phenomenon are common around [...]

This time of year, we see many Hallowe’en decorations showing the classic witch figure, hunched over a bubbling cauldron of flying ointment, or crossing the skies on her broom. Most of these images are fanciful and fun, and part of the ritual of the season. But there is some interesting truth to the legendary flying [...]

Years ago, before we even met, Paul was in the rare books business, dealing in out of print and special books on Western esoterics, Alchemy, Qabalah, philosophy, alternative healing and science, and related topics.

Each new single-herb Spagyric we create adds to our list of singles, but each one also increases the possibilities for new formulas, much like a painter mixing a new colour, which can then be used in countless paintings to come.
