Treadwell’s Pick of the Week
Subtitled, ‘Alchemy of Light and Shadow”, The Peacock’s Egg by Ron Wyman is a work describing an alchemical process, a long series of exercises developing dreams and dreaming practices, with purifications. The heart of the book lies in spiritual alchemy, but the dream work reveals the author’s debt to Carlos Castaneda. In the course of the book the reader explores not only the vision of the peacock’s egg, but also alchemical death, and attainment of the lapis.
It is difficult to find a good entry level title on Spiritual Alchemy and this title does a very good job of it.
