Solve et Coagula: Rescuing our true self through the art of Alchemy

The University of Philosophical Research, 3910 Los Feliz Blvd.
Los Angeles, 90027 | 

Tickets are $25. (SOLD OUT!). 

Solve et Coagula (Dissolve and Coagulate) encapsulates the alchemical process of transformation that starts with Know Thyself and culminates in the allegorical Holy Grail or Philosopher’s Stone.  In this hands-on workshop Dr. Yolanda Robinson will be presenting the principal steps of alchemy while exploring the ways that circumstances and challenges in our lives become opportunities to explore the role that our shadow and our psychic field play in our personal transformation. We will approach the Art of Alchemy as a magical and hermetical tool as used by the esoteric traditions.

We encourage participants to bring a Tarot deck of their choice associated with Hermeticism, Cabala, Rosicrucianism, traditional Marseille, or other mystery schools. The concept behind this workshop is to offer an opportunity for the student of Hermeticism and Divination to prepare the appropriate stage for the winter solstice to become an active ground of meaningful transformation.
