[THE ALCHEMY OF THE EXQUISITE] Kevin Townley, Alchemist, Esotericist, and Grand Lecturer of the Colorado Freemasonic Fraternity (A.F. & A.M.), discusses the Alchemy of the Exquisite, the essential foundations of the Cultivation of Truth, Love, the Family-hood of Humanity, and the Relief of Suffering in these momentous times. Educated for over a decade as a monastic in the Carmelite Order, and pulling from the wisdom of the Framers such as George Washington and Ben Franklin, along with many European thinkers, alchemists, writers, and leaders, Kevin shares a unique perspective, a profound conviction to serve and to act, and a sincere devotion to timeless virtues and tenets. The potency of the microbiome – as it transforms the wheat and juice of agriculture into the Bread and Wine of the Eucharist, as it affects the Chi, the Prana, the Life-Force of our bodies and minds, and even the soils of the forests and fields – is a fundamental key to conscious life on planet earth. So is our collective work to fulfill the promise of our nation’s foundational Declaration of Independence and Constitution, the stewardship of our single, shared Planet, and the cultivation of tolerance, civility, and loving-kindness toward one-another.
Mr. Townley is the author of several books, including: “The Cube of Space,” and “Meditations on the Cube of Space.” He is a frequent lecturer on esoteric mysteries, and teaches courses at The Colorado Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Boulder College, Sancta Sophia Theological Seminary and Naropa University, and elsewhere in the United States and Europe on various topics, including: Spagyrics, Qabalah, the Tree of Life, the Signatures of Nature, Sacred Geometry, and Alchemy. He co-founded the Hermetic school, The Philosophers of Nature, which has a seven-year curriculum in laboratory alchemy and Qabalah.
