Their goal is toeducate people about the philosophy and practice of alchemy as a way of connecting with the sacred living intelligence of Nature through her plant beings, which are the subject of spagyric work and the bridge between us and the natural world. Through this work, alchemical energies are linked from the planetary archetypes above to our personal microcosm within, the plants themselves becoming preparations which hold together this chain of being. Their company, Al-Kemi, was founded in 1991 to research and put into modern practice the ancient healing work of the original alchemists, who considered themselves Philosophers of Nature because their method of work consisted of observing Nature's operations and then applying them in the laboratory. They have continued that ancient lineage by providing discriminating clients with a complete alchemical and spagyric apothecary of products to promote health and longevity at all levels of being. They work with everything from physically healing herbs to shamanic and sacred plants for dreamwork, journeying, meditation, energy work, yoga, and more.
