Alchemergy is transformational podcasting for those looking to create real change in themselves and the world around them. But achieving lasting transformation is no easy task. Wishful thinking, egocentric beliefs, and simplistic discipline always fail. The challenge of change can only be surmounted by a deeper understanding of the universal principles involved -- the archetypal patterns hidden all around us. Since ancient Egypt, philosophers have been seeking those principles and working to understand how they can be applied. They created a powerful Art of Transformation, a spiritual technology known as alchemy.
Becoming One - The Sacred Marriage
This musical meditation is a creative response to the writings of Dennis William Hauck which have impacted my life in ways I have not yet fully realized. My inspired thoughts guided this effort, but the music was born in the mystery of the sacred marriage of the Sun and Moon within me. Their chaotic, unfathomable union caused the heavens to darken during my recording and then burst forth in a long, violent thunderstorm, which I also recorded. As Below, so Above. – John Schaffenberger. (Lyrics by Neil Bethell Sinclair; cover art by Rebecca Chaperon)
