    Finding Alchemical Gold

    Alchemy is often referenced when discussing the Arts of Distillation, Herbalism and Aromatherapy. All of these practices involve practical transformation such as tincture making and distillation. They also embody the axiom that energy is neither created nor destroyed, where energy may be transmuted on practical (physical), conceptual and spiritual levels. This energy ebbs and flows through, and is, the Universe. Some seek mastery of one or more of these and other Arts to connect with the Divine. Is the Divine within or outside the self? Found through mastering an Art? Does it lurk in processes or mind-sets? This essay explores these questions through the lens of transformative Arts such as Alchemy.
