The site and related links seem very very interesting, however, I have a problem with alchemists refunding money !
Real alchemists never refund anybody's money. What kind of silliness is this - refunds!!!! ????

These 'refund-alchemists' could give us real alchemists a bad name! :-)

Nevertheless, the site seems quite interesting and starts one off (spiritual alchemy) by having them vanquish the 'victim' and take responsibility for themselves and their experiences.

Hopefully the 'refund' stuff is a ruse. Perhaps 'refund' is the only 'dirty word' in the entire alchemical cosmology.

I can deal with 'death', 'dismemberment', 'purtification', 'rotting' etc., etc, but 'refund' simply pushes me towards a line that I cannot approach!

That refund-stuff is either libel or slander. I am feeling palpitations in my wallet.... I have to sit down...... http://forum.alchemyforums.com/images/icons/icon10.gif

I'm sure that this would be helpful for lots of people.
I just don't like that anyone can take anything and call it alchemy.
I mean, there's lots of spiritual exercises that can fall under calcination,
but there's no reason to link them to alchemy as an origin.

The first lesson, again, though helpful, has already been extensively written
about by several Toltec authors - Castaneda was the first, then Victor
Sanchez, then Miguel Ruiz.
It bothers me that they're taking this exact same exercise and selling it
as spiritual alchemy.

It's also funny that if you take the first lesson to heart and not blame
anyone, how could you ask for a refund? I guess it's a good way to weed
out the wimps, or make someone feel guilty.

Anyway, I'm sure the rest of their course will be filled with unoriginal
exercises stolen from other systems and labelled "alchemy".

Ah yes, next is affirmations and visualisations. No one's ever taught that before!
Where do I sign up!

"I am a child of God"
What the f*** does that mean?
If you can visualise that, it's very far from the truth.
Are they trying to make people feel better?
"I have the spiritual intelligence of a boob."
I think that would be more 'awakening'.

After passing the 8 grades, you receive this amazing token of honor:
