Flight : Witches on Brooms

October 4, 2017 by Micah  
Filed under Featured, 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  
Filed under News

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 [...]

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 [...]

New Spagyric : Vervain Alchymical Initiatic

February 26, 2012 by Micah  
Filed under Featured, News

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 [...]

Choices in Healing

When we first started this work, back in 1991, we made only a few Spagyrics, and had only a few customers. After those first few sales, we noticed a strange phenomena, in which we would suddenly be overtaken by a strange sensation of connection to another person, like being in deep conversation or closeness to [...]

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 [...]

Initiatics : how they work

March 26, 2009 by Micah  
Filed under Musings

In our first article in this series, we talked about the often misguided expectations people have of our Initiatic Spagyrics, often stemming from their experiences with more drug-like preparations of Shamanic plants. In the second article, we discussed what our Spagyrics do offer, when used in conjunction with personal discipline and effort.
In this article, we’ll [...]
