Western Tradition

The Western tradition of alchemy begins with the Greeks, who coined the term ‘khemia’, meaning ‘To transmute metals’, this term was later adopted by the Arabs into al-kimia/alchemy. As practiced in Europe and the Middle East, alchemy is both a philosophy and a practice focused on the outer attempt to change base metals into gold, and the inner ways of preparing the “elixir of longevity”. Secretly the goal is achieving ultimate wisdom, transmuting the mind of the alchemist in concert with the outer phenomenal world.

Here you will find traditional alchemical formulas as well as the cutting edge of Western research into the very edge of science – where the physical, mental and spiritual merge.
