KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Osiris, Ancient Myth for a New World
Alchemy remains an elusive, occult art and science in the contemporary world. And yet, as recent events have shown, the alchemical principle of Solve et Coagula is still very much operating in the individual psyche and collective society. Drawing from the 5000 year old myth of Osiris, Dr. Cavalli reveals how this recipe is embedded in this ancient story. He also shows how Egypt’s most heretical pharaoh, Akhenaton, founded monotheism and established the basis for the modern psyche.
In this keynote address, Thom traces the transformation of gods into psychological archetypes and describes their influence in contemporary affairs. He proposes that today’s Green Revolution represents a renaissance of alchemy – all that is missing is a god to complete the experiment. Dr. Cavalli gives good reason to nominate Osiris, God of Regeneration, as the spirit who will create the conjunction of mind and matter that will usher in a new world.
Thom Cavalli will also be doing a WORKSHOP: : Becoming Osiris, A Journey into Eternity
