Learn to engage differently with the challenges and areas of ‘stuckness’ in your life. Get armed with a deeper understanding of alchemical psychology and the teachings of the alchemists. You will experience how – within the more unknown and mysterious aspects of life – there is a living spirit that wants to help you shift your consciousness. Join us as world-renowned Jungian analyst, Robert Bosnak, guides us into a world of ancient wisdom to apply the lens of Alchemy to our everyday life.
Particular problems haunt us. That same old stuff AGAIN?! They are chronic and return eternally. According to our Zeitgeist, problems need to be resolved. But if we move far away from the can-do spirit of our age we find that alchemists long ago tell us a different story about change.
These alchemists say that insoluble problems are environments in which our habitual consciousness can dissolve. After which it is pushed through to another dimension. In this way chronic problems can become portals to a complete reshuffle of the deck.
Alchemy may be understood as the experiences of our day-to-day lives portrayed as substances in a vessel. These substances can transform after their obvious literal appearance dissolves. In this course we explore how we can change when faced with the unchanging always-the-same. We do that by taking a radically different Zeitgeist as our starting place.
Robert Bosnak takes texts from the most famous 16th century compendium of alchemy, the Rosarium Philosophorum. He will translate them directly from the original Latin in search for completely different perspectives on everyday problems.
The material we are dealt may be dark and toxic, but this change of attitude makes life a curious adventure rather than a claustrophobic trap of constant problem solving. Alchemy tells us that remedies are made from toxins.
The word Gibberish stems from the incomprehensible nature of the writings of one of the most prominent authors in the Rosarium: Geber. His mystifying language was seen to be “Geberish”. However, in the most incomprehensible alchemical writings we observe the creative imagination in its most mysterious actions. This course attempts to place your life in a complex alchemical blender to obtain radical freshly animating concoctions. Let your stuck-ness be your material, your sense of failure the toxin from which you make remedies for your ailments.
