A ground-breaking modern manual on an ancient art, Real Alchemy draws on both modern scientific technology and ancient methods. A laboratory scientist and chemist, Robert Allen Bartlett provides an overview of the history of alchemy, as well as an exploration of the theories behind the practice. Clean, clear, simple, and easy to read, Real Alchemy provides excellent directions regarding the production of plant products and transitions the reader-student into the basics of mineral work—what some consider the true domain of alchemy. New students to practical laboratory alchemy will enjoy reading Real Alchemy and hopefully find the encouragement needed to undertake their own alchemical journey. Bartlett also explains what the ancients really meant when they used the term “Philosopher’s Stone” and describes several very real and practical methods for its achievement. Is the fabled Philosopher’s Stone an elixir of long life or is it a method of transforming lead into gold? Judge for yourself.

One of the few practicing alchemists in the modern era, Robert Allen Bartlett explains what the ancients really meant when they used the term Philosopher's Stone and describes several very real and practical methods for its achievement. Is the fabled Philosopher's Stone an Elixir of Long Life or is it a method of transforming Lead into Gold? You can be the judge of that for yourself after reading the new book on Alchemy - "Real Alchemy." (With a Foreword by Dennis William Hauck, editor of "Alchemy Journal," alchemylab.com and crucible.org. The book also includes a full Index and Bibliography.) Bartlett has been a practicing alchemist for over thirty years and was a student of the twentieth century's most highly recognized alchemist, Frater Albertus, at Paracelsus College beginning in 1974. After receiving his degree in Chemistry in 1979, Bartlett was appointed Chief Chemist at Frater Albertus' Paralab. He is a member of the International Alchemy Guild at the Adept Level.

Im Reich der Elemente

Woraus besteht die Welt, woraus Mikroben, Meere, der Mensch? Kean gelingt etwas Schönes: Man kapiert’s auch ohne dröge Formeln. Das Hauptgebäude der modernen Chemie, das Periodensystem der Elemente, sieht langweilig aus, doch in ihm verbergen sich spannende Geschichten über Alchimisten, Entdecker und Goldgräber, Medizinalräte und Quacksalber, Kriegsstrategen, Spione, Geschäftemacher und Spinner. So macht Naturwissenschaft Spaß! Das periodische System der Elemente ist nicht nur eine große wissenschaftliche Leistung, sondern auch eine Schatzkiste voller skurriler Episoden, die von Leidenschaft, Abenteuern, Betrug und Besessenheit handeln. Während Kean die Grundbausteine des Universums und die Ordnung, die sie schaffen, erklärt, erzählt er zugleich, welche Rolle sie vom Urknall bis heute gespielt haben. Wie etwa Gerhard Domagk das Leben seiner Tochter riskierte, um die ersten Antibiotika zu entwickeln. Wie Portugal sowohl den Nazis als auch den Alliierten zu astronomischen Preisen Wolfram lieferte, weil beide Seiten es dringend für den Krieg brauchten.

Alchemy is the ancient sacred science concerned with the mysteries of life and consciousness as reflected through all Nature. It is a harmonious blending of physical and subtle forces which lifts the subject, whether it be man or metal, to a more evolved state of being. The Way of the Crucible is a ground-breaking modern manual on the art of Alchemy that draws on both modern scientific technology and ancient methods. A laboratory scientist and chemist, Bartlett provides an overview of how practical alchemy works along with treatises on Astrology, Qabalah, Herbalism, and minerals, as they relate to Alchemy. He also explains what the ancients really meant when they used the term “Philosopher’s Stone” and describes practical methods toward its achievement. The Way of the Crucible provides directions for a more advanced understanding of the mineral work — what some consider the true domain of Alchemy.

Thomas Vaughan and the Indian Tantric Tradition

Author: Peter Levenda

The Tantric Alchemist is a work on alchemy as decoded by Tantra and a work on Tantra as understood by alchemists. It uncovers works by Thomas Vaughan and suggests how he and his wife--a 17th-century Welsh couple unique in the history of western alchemy--met their fate when dealing with forces they knew only too well, but which were stronger than their ability to control them. Using the works of Vaughan as his text, Levenda applies the "twilight language" of Tantra to the surreal prose of the alchemist and in the process lays bare the lineaments of the arcane tradition that gave rise to the legend of Christian Rosenkreutz, the reputed founder of Rosicrucianism who learned his art in the East; and to the 19th- and 20th-century occult movements lead by such luminaries as P.B. Randolph, Theodore Reuss, Helena Blavatsky, and Aleister Crowley who also sought (and discovered) this technology in the religions and cultures of Asia. Readers will find that the many disparate threads of an authentic spiritual tradition are woven together here in a startling tapestry that reveals--without pretense or euphemism--the psycho-sexual technique that is at the root of both Tantra and alchemy: that is to say, of both Asian and European forms of esoteric praxis.

Selbstliebe statt Perfektionismus In einer Welt, in der die Furcht zu versagen zur zweiten Natur geworden ist, erscheint Verletzlichkeit als gefährlich. Doch das Gegenteil ist der Fall: Die renommierte Psychologin Brené Brown zeigt, dass Verletzlichkeit der Ort ist, wo Liebe, Zugehörigkeit, Freude und Kreativität entstehen. Unter ihrer behutsamen Anleitung erforschen wir unsere Ängste und entwickeln eine machtvolle neue Vision, die uns ermutigt, Großes zu wagen.

Wahre innere Stärke erwächst nicht aus Siegen, sondern aus Niederlagen: Gerade zu straucheln und hinzufallen, birgt die Chance für inneres Wachstum und weist uns den Weg zu Weisheit, Hoffnung und einem tieferen Lebenssinn. Die US-amerikanische Starpsychologin Brené Brown erforscht seit vielen Jahren die Gesetzmäßigkeiten innerer Stärke. Anschaulich und anhand vieler Beispiele beschreibt sie den Entwicklungsprozess, der uns in Krisenzeiten positiv formt: Wir lernen, mit Scham umzugehen. Uns trotz widriger Umstände als wertvoll zu empfinden. Gehen das Wagnis ein, uns in unserer Verletzlichkeit zu zeigen. Entwickeln den Mut, uns über die eigenen Grenzen hinauszuwagen und unser Leben aktiv zu gestalten – und sind schließlich stärker als je zuvor.
