Alchemy: The 4 Elements

Saturday, July 24th, 2021

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM Pacific Standard Time

Alchemy can be seen as a process that blends spirit and matter, bridging the worlds of concrete reality with the unconscious psyche.

In this workshop we will explore four alchemical operations along with their elemental analogs, and how we might utilize this symbolic system as a tool for insight and self-inquiry.


  • Introduction to alchemy

  • Four alchemical operations: Calcinatio (fire), Solutio (water), Sublimatio (air), Coagulatio (earth)

  • Jung and alchemy

  • Symbolism and archetypal themes of each operation

  • Mythological examples of the four operations

  • Alchemical dream images

  • Prompts and reflection exercises

Anyone who buys a ticket will be given access to a video recording of the event, regardless of whether or not you are able to attend.
