The Fires of Alchemy - A Transpersonal Viewpoint (Limited First Edition, Signed)

£19.99

Product description

Although that we know the process of turning base metal into gold truly refers to the deepest and highest transformation within the human psyche, yet Alchemy remains a secret land of the imagination, veiled in mystery, touching something deep within us, inviting us into the world of archetypes, full of unexpected meaning.

Barbara Somers created the Alchemy courses on which this book is based, and ran them throughout the 1980s. They were originally intended both for the general public and for counsellors and psychotherapists in training. She leads us into this world with a sure touch, guiding us into the very centre of the symbolic Alchemist's den and through the phases, trials and tribulations of the inner process that helps us to become what we truly are.

This book is a limited edition, numbered 28/350 (noted on the half title page). The book is signed by the author and editor on the half title page.

The book has a dust jacket which is intact and shows slight signs of shelf wear to the spine edges. Otherwise, it is in excellent condition throughout.
