Dennis William Hauck presents a penetrating discussion of the origins and power of the ancient teachings of Hermes and how they evolved in alchemy, literature, religion, and science. Topics include the Emerald Tablet, the history of Balinas (Apollonius of Tyana), the seven operations and the Emerald Formula, the planetary archetypes, personal transformation, and Jungian psychology. There is also an extremely powerful 'interview" with Thoth in which he explains the nature of the universe. 

Alchemy in 3 Minutes

Everything you need to know about alchemy in the time it takes to boil an egg!

In this lecture at the Philosophical Research Society of Los Angeles, Dennis William Hauck presents an archetypal journey through the metals and the powerful energies they symbolize. The focus is on transmuting each of the seven metals on a planetary spiral of perfection. This is how the great spiritual alchemists of the Renaissance worked in their efforts to "return to the stars."

In this lecture at the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) of Los Angeles, Dennis William Hauck presents a short history of alchemy centered on the fabled Emerald Tablet and expands the ancient wisdom into a viable discipline of personal transformation for modern times. Topics include Alexandrian alchemists, Balinas (Apollonius), First Matter, the Philosopher's Stone, the seven operations of alchemy, Kurt Godel, Carl Jung, and more.

Dennis William Hauck discusses the meaning of the Emerald Tablet with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove on this popular Wisdom Network and PBS program "Thinking Allowed." Topics covered include the connections between Hermetic philosophy and modern science, and how the operations of alchemy are applied in psychology and personal transformation as well as in laboratory work. 

Dennis William Hauck discusses two empowering alchemical engravings in this interview by Doneliya Deneva of AMORC. They are the "Azoth of the Philosophers" and the "Tabula Smaragdina".

What Is Alchemy?

The true nature and spirit of alchemy is revealed by going back in time to a medieval laboratory and discovering the deeper meaning of the processess and operations taking place in the lab and in the mind of the alchemist.

Alchemists believed that no transformation—whether in the laboratory, in the body, or in the soul—could succeed without the presence of a mysterious ingredient known as the Materia Prima (First Matter). Nothing was more important to alchemist’s work than this energetic essence, which they believed could be extracted from nature and rendered tangible and visible. This lecture examines the nature and properties of the elusive First Matter. Hauck explains how the concept of the First Matter evolved in both the scientific and Hermetic traditions to become a fundamental, although often unrecognized, tenet of both modern Hermeticism and modern physics. Based on a lecture at the “Hidden In Plain Sight” Conference at the Francis Bacon Auditorium in San Jose, California, in 2011.
