The Alchemical Wedding
February 28th 7:00pm-9:00pm PST
Teacher: Brian Cotnoir
Recorded for absentees: YES
Alchemy can be defined as the art and science of bringing something to its final perfection. For the alchemists this could be understood to mean perfecting lead to gold, or the leading of the human soul to the divine.
The Alchemical Wedding, or the union of opposites, is the sought after moment, the turning point in the process to perfection. This marriage is often depicted as a King and Queen in sexual union, or as a “Rebis” a hermaphroditic being with two heads.
So, with a perfected self and perfected matter, what’s a Rebis to do?
Tonight’s talk will look at this union in relation to ideas of perfection, the “place” of this union and touch on ideas of perfectibility through human action.
