purchaseUsing the three pillars Astrology, Alchemy, and Theurgy of the ancient Western esoteric tradition known as Hermeticism, we will examine how to make a true spagyric tincture. 

DATE: 4-hour workshop is on September 19th, 2020
TIME: 1:00 - 5:00 PM Pacific Time / 4:00 - 8:00 PM Eastern Time

The Alchemy and Astrology workshop is a small introduction to the philosophy and practice of herbal Alchemy and how Astrology is applied. This workshop will help you include these arts in your personal practice.

Alchemy is far more than the transmutation of base metals into gold. It is also a good way to know oneself, to obtain physical health, emotional balance, mental expansion, and spiritual transcendence. An herbal spagyric is a simple, yet potent way to begin one’s Hermetic journey that anyone can do at home. This workshop will show you how to use: natal and medical astrology for finding what one needs support, electional astrology and the doctrine of signatures for finding the right herb and when to process it with planetary hours, alchemy for making the spagyric tincture out of the three principals, and theurgy for invoking the spiritual energies necessary for giving it an effective magical spark.

This course is being presented to coincide with Stoic Week (October 19-25) an international celebration. 

Initial 3-hour Meeting on October 10, 2020 
TIME: 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT / 12:00-3:00 PM EDT
2 additional meetings:
October 31 and November 7, 2020
TIME: 9:00-11:00 AM PDT / 12:00-2:00 PM EDT

The development of astrology in the West owes a great debt to the philosophy of the Stoics. Their depictions of human bondage and freedom, their quest for serenity, and their emphasis on the nobility of character continues to influence astrology’s techniques and astrology’s underlying understanding of the human condition.

This course begins with a three-hour workshop on Saturday, October 10 that introduces the main ideas and the astrological applications of the Stoics.

The week of October 19-25 is “Stoic Week” - an annual event that invites participants to ‘live like a Stoic for a week’. It is run online and is completely free (and has had over 20,000 people participate since 2012). The Modern Stoicism group has developed meditations, contemplations, and exercises to give people hands-on experience of the pursuit of greater understanding and serenity – and positive action in the world. While not required, workshop participants are encouraged to participate.

This workshop continues on the two Saturdays (October 31 and November 7) following Stoic week to process, exchange ideas, and apply what they have learned to astrology! There will also be an online classroom for participants to connect with each other and post their observations.

Enid Newberg

Enid Newberg, MA Whole Systems Design, discovered astrology in the 1970s when she went with friends to listen to a lecture by Dane Rudhyar. From that point on she was hooked. She particularly enjoys introducing students to the dynamic aliveness of an astrological chart. She is also fascinated by astrology's history and philosophy as well as its intersection with magic, culture, and spirituality.

Enid became involved in the dream of creating an academic college where astrology would be openly taught and joined the board of Kepler College in 1993. She was president when the college first opened in 2000 through 2001. In November 2004, she rejoined the administration and was president again from 2006 until 2019. She is still a member of the Board of Trustees. She loves to teach and work with clients.
