Gather ‘Round the Fires of Consciousness to Explore and Share Awareness
From our first two “Books as Sacrament” circles, as a follow up to the mystical map presented in LSD and the Mind of the Universe, and Nada Brahma: The World is Sound, this third book is like a practical “how to” manual for navigating dimensionally, in the direction these other two books were pointing us. It is “about” alchemy, put into a very expanded consciousness context.
Alchemy is usually seen as a very arcane and inscrutably mysterious coded language. This book makes it much more user friendly and accessible to decode the wisdom held within alchemy! Catherine MacCoun gives us wisdom from the point of view that alchemical magic never defies the laws of nature, but rather observes the workings of those laws at an earlier stage than is evident to the physical senses. She goes into depth about the subtle senses that pick up where the physical senses leave off. She shares about the perception that when journeying in the vertical dimensions, there is a desire to make horizontal sense of what is perceived in the vertical and it is what differentiates mysticism from gnosis. To come back from the vertical with something intelligible to report is the way of the sage or seer. It is that ability to come back from dimensional experience with gnosis (direct knowing) and be able to express it to others in some form, is what we will be looking at together in this “Books as Sacrament” circle!
