Classical alchemy arose in Europe in the 12th century, combining Hermetic philosophy and astronomy with natural sciences in an attempt to master the arts of purification, maturation, and perfection.
Sowa Rigpa (‘the science of healing’), the medical system of Tibet, has for almost a millennium retained a practical alchemical lineage, including techniques for what is deemed the magnum opus of alchemy, and a robust astrological tradition arising out of Taoist elemental theory, Indian Kalachakra, and Western tropical astrology.
This course will investigate some of the intersections between these fascinating ancient systems, unveiling the shared roots of eastern and western medicine, as well as the role of astrology in traditional medicines.
