As we discussed in our post about our new line of Spagyrics, Theurgica, we have returned to our original focus on making Spagyrics to support meditation, ritual, and spiritual practice of all kinds. Many Spagyrics fitting this category were already part of our work, and as promised, here are a few more.

We are pleased to announce a new focus in our work, which is actually a return to the original path we took when we started making Spagyrics, back in 1991.
At that time, we made only the seven planetary Magisteries, creating them to be supports and adjuncts to Hermetic practices of meditation and ritual through the [...]
On Thursday, I was the guest on the always-funny, ever-insightful Caroline Casey’s Visionary Activist Radio Show (archived recording at that link).
Caroline is an astrologer, but not in any of the ordinary senses of that word. Caroline has a modern take on this ancient Art, which is also connected to the original Hermetic understanding of the [...]

Inspired by our new Vervain Alchymical Initiatic, we decided to have a 20% off sale on Old World initiatic [...]
Our newest Spagyric, an Alchymical Initiatic of Vervain,was inspired by my own Irish heritage and the deep reverence that many ancient European cultures held for this special plant.
My own history with Vervain goes back a few years to a personal tradition I practice every year on Samhain, the ancient harvest festival more commonly known as [...]
Guardian angel, higher self, spirit guide, still small voice- all of these concepts share the idea that a higher plane of wisdom exists, accessible from our daily sphere, but also greater than our everyday self and able to help with wisdom outside of our normal consciousness.
Hermetic traditions, of which Alchemy is one, are full of [...]
You may have heard us talk about an interesting way of working with our Magisteries by taking one Magistery each day according to its planetary rulership, bringing insight and balance over the course of several weeks. It is a powerful way to uncover your own personal relationship with each of the planet’s archetypal energies, showing [...]
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 second article, we discussed Eastern legends of gravity-defiance, including flying [...]
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 [...]
In our first article, we discussed some of the ideas and practices that Alchemy has inherited from the Hermetic tradition, and how much of that core philosophy also informs magickal work. We also described some of the ways of preparing for a magickal ritual or an alchemical process, especially in how the planetary intelligences are [...]
