It may seem strange and even a little bit disrespectful to call such a beloved flower a weed, but here at Al-Kemi, we don’t consider “weed” an insult, and in any case, many kinds of roses do grow freely, wild and naturalized, all over the world. Their abundance, toughness, and adaptability don’t make them any [...]

As I worked on my talk for the upcoming Power of Inner Connection Summit, I was sure I wanted to have a discussion about the planetary energies in our work. The organizer was very interested in that aspect and thought her listeners would be, too, and it’s an important part of our work that we [...]

We’ve been going through our huge book collection lately and realizing that many of them need new homes with new eyes to see them and new minds to inspire!
So, we’ve been listing them in a new Ebay store Paul created which will also eventually offer talismans, sacred objects, tools for meditation, and more.
For now, you’ll [...]

Flight : Witches on Brooms

October 4, 2017 by Micah  
Filed under Musings

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 [...]

Theurgica : Spagyrics for meditation, ritual, and union with the Divine

October 23, 2014 by Micah

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 [...]

First, on the Visionary Activist Show on April 26, Caroline and I talked about the moving, changing world of the planets and [...]

To many of you, knowing and supporting our work for so long, that may seem like a very basic and easy to answer question. If so, thanks for paying attention all this time! But, if you’re new to our work, or would just like a better understanding of what we do, this question is a [...]
