6. Alchemy

So in recent years, Falco the founder of Damanhur taught a series of courses based on the knowledge of Alchemy, reviving the ancient art of transforming oneself through knowledge and application of magical reality. Alchemy is supposedly a lost science from which all other sciences derive. Damanhurian Alchemy differs radically from the practices usually associated with alchemical experiments as it is not a fixed science but a discipline exploring every nook and cranny of our being, with mind & heart-blowing, incredibly useful & very complex teachings of Falco, to create a new and ancient self.

The Alchemy School of the Damanhur University builds upon knowledge about ritual and alchemy passed down from Falco in an earlier era of Damanhur. I feel lucky that these teachings are still so accessible! Great fun, mind boggling and a high art.

  1. Should Alchemy be accessible to everyone? Well when Falco started giving public talks on esoteric themes in Turin, Italy in the 1970s, he was very controversial because he thought spirituality, magic and alchemy should be available to a wide number of people in order to create positive change in the world, while some traditional esotericists thought that it should be kept much more reserved, kept only to the select few and in secret circles. Even in the most recent years, Falco made his teachings on Alchemy available to the public through the Alchemy School, as you mention. And he also said his book ‘Stories of an Alchemist’ is filled with knowledge in code.

    I agree, I think it’s a time of mass awakening and evolutionary transformation on Earth, and the benefit of having alchemical knowledge available to most everyone outweighs the dangers and goes beyond traditions which are too rigid and risk becoming obsolete.
