*SUBLIMATION AND THE SUBLIME, THE ALCHEMY OF MIND*
seminar, 9 December 2023
The mind or ‘thinking cogito’, as we named it, is the most eccentric of all human capacities to perceive, operate and create. It has no body, yet its basic tools – concepts and essences – are very powerful. They offer a perspective on life, which is from above and neutral, bringing freedom and non-attachment of living – indeed, the sublime. The alchemy of the mind is traditionally called sublimatio. This is a process in which the material of our lives evaporates into knowledge about ourselves. The process involves the workings of transiting Saturn and Uranus, which we will explore in some depth.
There is 120-minute time format, of which 90 minutes is the theoretical presentation, followed by a 30 minutes workshop, where we are going to work with the IPAL Method with two participants from the group. The cost of each seminar is 39,50 €, payable via paypal or SEPA account payment.
