“Alchemy is the art of separating the pure from the impure, the true from the false, and that is what Brian Cotnoir has done for us concisely.  If you are new to the study of alchemy, or even if you’ve been around it for a while and need some additional guidance or inspiration, this is the book for you.”

—from the foreword by Robert Allen Bartlett, author of Real Alchemy: A Primer of Practical Alchemy

In this concise but remarkably rich guide to the history, theory, and practice of alchemy, Brian Cotnoir explores the alchemical art of working with the energies of nature for spiritual development, healing, and transformation.  He provides an overview of the history of alchemy, from the first melding of Egyptian technology to the Middle Ages—the golden age of alchemy—to contemporary techniques.


Practical Alchemy includes the following:

- A clear explanation of the theory underlying the art and science of alchemy and how it works

- An exploration of the relationships between alchemy and chemistry

- Step-by-step instructions for beginning a practice in alchemy

- An introduction to the practice of alchemy to students of the Western magical arts


Brian Cotnoir is an alchemist, artist, and award-winning filmmaker.  He is a contributor to Frater Albertus’s Parachemy, and has presented workshops and seminars around the world on various aspects of alchemical theory and practice.
