A Dictionary of Western Alchemy by Jordan Stratford just came out this November, and it’s already gaining great media attention.

On November 30, The Magonia Review of Books published an insightful review.  Click here to read the review online, or view it via Scribd below.

 

In the November/December issue of Theosophy Forward, A Dictionary of Western Alchemy was chosen as a Notable Book.  The review reads:

The book under review here is not an introduction to alchemy, but it is an extremely useful compilation of alchemic terms and symbols, explained with admirable clarity. Anyone interested in alchemy for its own sake or as an important cultural stream in Western thought will benefit from having this work to consult. As our friend Stephan Hoeller (Theosophist and Gnostic) is quoted on the back cover of the back cover of the book: “Jordan Stratford’s fine work is precisely what has been missing on the shelf of every student of the ‘Great Art.’ Accurate, insightful, and accessible!”

Alchemy has left behind its state as a pseudo-science only to come back out as a spiritual journey. “Embodying Osiris: The Secrets of Alchemical Transformation” is a meeting of disciplines, as Thom F. Cavalli twists the ideas of Jungian psychology, Alchemy, and mythology together to present one discussion of philosophy and channel the very spirit of reinvention and self-renewal. With plenty of intriguing thoughts and theories, “Embodying the Osiris” is an excellent addition to any psychology and spirituality collection.

MORE:
The mythology of Osiris, God of the Dead, originated in ancient Egypt’s Old Kingdom and endured throughout 3000 years of dynastic rule.  During that time, his image evolved from a nature spirit to God of the Dead to Lord of the Underworld.  His mythology ended with the collapse of ancient Egypt but his spirit continued to transform and is with us even today.  He is the impulse of life, the vibration that rhythmically moves everything in life, from the rise and fall of our breath, the ocean’s waves, the cycles of sleep and waking, the seasons…life and death.  We can tap into this rhythmic energy by relating to Osiris as a psychological archetype.  By resonating with this primal rhythm we consciously move with nature, both within our bodies and with the universe.  When we are out of rhythm, things go horribly wrong!  It is time to bring Osiris back into our global, collective awareness.

Thom F. Cavalli, PhD is a licensed psychologist in private practice for 30 years in Santa Ana.  He is the author of Alchemical Psychology, Old Recipes for Living in a New World and Embodying Osiris, the Secrets of AlchemicalTransformation.

Psychological Perspectives, the journal of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, has reviewed Robin Robertson’s Indra’s Net: Alchemy and Chaos Theory as Models for Transformation!

In this opus, Robertson embarks upon a fascinating explorational journey at the edge of modern chaos theory and psychology. As a trained physicist who studied chaos theory, I particularly liked this balanced and comprehensive presentation…Its core insight is that the ancient alchemcial path, the most recently discovered path of complexity in chaos theory, and the individuation path in the psyche of individuals all share the same template of transformation, “a template that underlies all other paths of spiritual transfomration”.

Executive director of the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles
