…inspired by a vision, a vision of man made perfect, of man freed from disease and the limitations of warring faculties both mental and physical, standing as a god in the realisation of a power that even at this very moment of time is lying hidden in the deeper strata of his consciousness, a vision of man made truly in the image and likeness of the one Divine Life in all its Perfection, Beauty, and Harmony."

- from Alchemy Recovered and Restored by Archibald Cockren

Our Mission

This is a podcast that will bring together people and ideas that have an alchemical foundation, and together we will dive into the depths of consciousness and hopefully have some interesting insights and ideas to share. It will also feature interesting talks by philosophers, scientists and scholars of various sorts.

We will also be playing some cool music... some of my own, but also from other people that are willing to share their songs for free here on the Natural Born Alchemist podcast.

Enjoy!

The talk with Dan was recorded at night and the rainforest sounds at night are quite loud... which means if you don't want to hurt your ears (especially is you are using headphones) please lower the volume a bit during Dan's section.
