Feedback from Students

"The discourses are written in a down-to-earth style that is direct and easy to understand, yet evoke a level of wisdom in me that I never expected. I started out just curious about alchemy and now these teachings are the light of my life." - Albert Wojekowski (Pittsburgh, PA USA)

"I had no idea what was involved in making tinctures and elixirs. Now I realize the power behind alchemical medicines and understand how to use them. These preparations tap into the deepest parts of nature. And now I am learning how to make them myself and tailor them to my own special needs." - Walter Dunninger (San Francisco, CA USA) 

"The courses help me shift my attitude towards life in a way that opens doors and helps me grow. When I sit down and read this material, even though I am doing it on a modern computer, I feel that I am in touch with ancient and sacred knowledge." - George Montclef (New York, NY USA)     

"The Alchemy Study Program is truly in a class all by itself. It enables the student or aspiring Alchemist to transform on all three levels of reality and these teachings “stick” immediately allowing the veil of mystery to be lifted away and empowering one to realize their Personal Vision for the Great Work. I recommend this program for anyone who has even the mustard seed-sized hint of a desire to pursue this Path. That seed will be watered and it will grow." - Vincent Norman Martin (Willoughby, Ohio)
