Salt - Mercury - Sulfur

The Three Alchymical Processes Translated into Meditative Painting Exercises
A Weekend Workshop with Peter Bruckner
Saturday, September 22, 2018, 8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
 
Speaking to a group of young doctors, Rudolf Steiner (1862 -1925), introduced a verse that was meant to heighten their perceptive abilities, as well as rejuvenate them in their difficult work. It is an imaginative meditation that evokes the three alchymical processes, symbolically referred to as: Salt, Mercury and Sulfur. 

Christian Rosenkreutz and the Rosicrucian Alchymists understood this trinity to underlie all magical transformations in nature. Using the verse as an entry point, we will explore this fascinating subject through a variety of observational experiences and painting exercises. Our focus will be on how they activate the energetic qualities of copper, silver and gold within the human aura. 

Whether you are a physician, teacher, therapist, artist or gardener, due to the universal nature of these processes, an awareness of them will allow you a greater access to the creative forces that shape our world. This workshop will provide an introduction that will enable you to consciously use them in the classroom, studio or therapy session with profound effect.

No previous skill or artistic ability is required. Due to the threefold nature of the content it is important that you are able to attend all three sessions held throughout the day.
