We have an incredible line up of presentations, trainings, workshops, a conference and tours all beginning on the evening of June 3rd, in the heart of the alchemical history of Prague, the Edward Kelley tower! This is where John Dee and Edward Kelley would attempt to make their alchemical musings, among the other rich dramas of that time! The setting is perfect for one of the foremost alchemical teachers in the world, Aurelius Electrum (Paul from Canada), to conduct his workshop. We will set up a practical alchemical lab with its array of beakers, vials and fires and take you through the process of making plant medicines in the traditional way, full of its extracted life forces.
The following weekend will be a gathering for the International Healing Water Technology Symposium. Experts from all around the world will present their cutting edge ideas on the power and magic of water, hydrogen and oxygen.
In-between the two major educational weekends, we have a week of intriguing walking tours of Prague, a river cruise party, day trips to old Bohemia and lectures on the history of the Alchemy of Prague and an Enochian-Ophanic-Angelic language ritual workshop! It does not get better than that!
In Prague you will be totally surrounded by sacred geometry, alchemy and an aura of mystery! It is a place filled with fascinating culture and spiritual history. The building materials (made from paramagnetic rock), the cobblestone streets, the classical architecture based on sacred geometry and the intimate human scale (not to mention the best beer in the world) and the conviviality of your fellow adventurers all adds up to a powerful beautiful unforgettable personal experience.
Because of our unique historical venues, there is a tight limitation to space, so first in first served to secure your place! We highly recommend to book now, as we are nearly half booked at time of writing and June is a popular time to be in Prague
The best deal is based on booking and payment by the 1st April 2016. Read below for all details and start planning your trip now.
Into the Rosy Heart of Alchemy and the Science of the Sacred
So rich and beautiful was Prague five centuries ago that it was called "The Golden City" (die Goldene Stad) - and the name, like its beauty, has remained. The fame of the “crossroads of the medieval world” spread along the great highways and rivers of Europe and fired the imagination of generations of poets, peasants, artists, philosophers and alchemists.
The architecture of this fairytale city, dominated by a great castle, ancient pinnacles and spires of gold-filled churches, captures a mysterious mystical quality rarely encountered in the world today. Legend has it that Princess Libuse, who could tell the future, founded Prague on the spot where she saw a man carving a threshold, in Czech called a ‘Prah’, for his house. Nicknames for Prague have included "the Mother of Cities" (Praga mater urbium,) and "City of a Hundred Spires".
The greatest flourishing of Alchemy in Europe came during the reign of Rudolf II (1575 -1611) when important Czech and foreign alchemists lived in Bohemia. This was a prosperous period for the city: famous people living there in that age include the astronomers Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler, the painter Arcimboldo, the alchemists Edward Kelley and John Dee, the poetess Elizabeth Jane Weston, and many others.
The Feng Shui of Prague is based on it being surrounded by seven hills, similar to the seven hills of Rome, and the seven hills of Dublin's "Loves Body” written by James Joyce. Seven church sites occupy the seven hills of Prague - and the ancient plan of this powerful location was to establish a pattern of five sacred sites inside and seven on the outside- making the symbol of the “Rosy Cross” an almost perfect geometric symmetry.
Prague is widely considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe with preserved examples from all periods of its history and is among the most visited cities on the continent. Since 1992, the extensive historic centre of Prague has been included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. According to Guinness Book of World Records, Prague Castle is the largest ancient castle in the world. The site offers historic towers, cathedrals, bridges and verdant hills.
We will have walking tours of Prague, visiting the famous Astronomical Clock located in the mystical town square, the Prague Castle where we will study its constellation alignments, and the famous Charles Bridge and many other ‘special off the track locations” where only our local guide Eliska Bridges can reveal their hidden secrets. The Czech Republic boasts more than 2,000 preserved castles and chateaux, more per square mile than any other country. Our ‘package event’ will also include days of exploring in Kutna Hora, built on a silver ore field near the legendary Sedlec Ossuary “Bone Church”, and the medieval alchemical township of old Bohemia “Cesky Krumlov”. During the week we will have talks on the history of Alchemy in Prague and also a workshop on the infamous Enochian Ophanic Angelic language developed by John Dee, with international experts Dr. Teresa Burns and Alan Burns taking you through a special ritual accompanied by beautiful harp music
Roger Green and the streets of Prague
Your host and sponsor Roger Green, has taught in Prague every year since 1998. He has sponsored Feng Shui, Sacred Geometry and Ecology conferences in Prague and Budapest. His New York based “Academy Healing Nutrition” now has a branch of its curriculum running in Prague. Each year in Prague he teaches modules from his classical Feng Shui trainings.
In 2009 he sponsored the first “Alchemy of Prague” event, where he invited the foremost esoteric historian, Vincent Bridges, from South Carolina, USA. Vincent ended up living in Sir Edward Kelley's house, tower and alchemical crypts and was the curator to the newly renovated Alchemical Museum and the House of the Donkey and Cradle theater and bar, where some of our alchemical training with Aurelius Electrum will take place.
Vincent was in the process of finishing some major manuscripts based on the missing years of William Shakespeare and also a book on the life of John Dee and a book on Edward Kelley. Sadly, Vincent passed away July 2014 in Prague, on the night of his gala performance of his play at the Donkey and Cradle.
Some of his life´s work will live on through his friend and translator Eva and his partner Eliska, who will be your guides in Prague and on the tours of old Bohemia. His colleagues from the USA, Dr Teresa Burns and Alan Burns, will conduct an Enochian Angelic Language Ritual workshop as part of the event in honor of Vincent’s work in this field.
