Iona Miller’s Spiritual Alchemy Series
Iona Miller’s SPIRITUAL ALCHEMY Series:
“NOVUM LUMEN NATURAE”
As Homo Lumen we intentionally cultivate and realize the Body of Light, the diamond vehicle of consciousness. Alchemy is the sensuous science through which we love that natural light into being, even as Lumen Naturae kindles ourselves. The light is our connection to all that is wholly existant and our own immortality. In fact, there is nothing else but this light of grace and glory that complements the celestial light. Mending this division makes us whole.
“CRYSALLINE CHAOTIC SEA: Pre-existence, Chaos Theory & Soma Athanaton”
The unimaginably vast and the infinitesimal are simply connected at Zero Point. Nature is self-referential like fractals. Connection is as fundamental as structure. Alchemy is an accelerated path to enlightenment, a state or phase change to a higher order adaptation and function. Magic happens in the gaps between breaths. Realizing this moment neither begins nor ends, we realize deathlessness. That which is never born, never dies. To embody the Philosopher’s Stone, we reiterate the whole process of creation.
“CHAOS, SOLVENT & STONE”
The Stone is a psychic lodestone or vortex. It ‘magnetically’ orders the contents of our consciousness around it through reflexive feedback loops in chaotic yet meaningful fashion. Instinctual attraction toward processes that dissolve the ego and liquify consciousness leads to transpersonal experience via symbolic death/rebirth. We experience deep states of emotional turbulence in initiation ordeals and in the merger of subject (soror mystica) and object (frater). It implies a flowing state of consciousness, facilatating feedback with Source or the groundstate of consciousness via creative regression. Chaos Theory, as well as alchemy, provides a more than metaphorical language for describing the flowing dynamics of the chaotic process of psychological transformation.
“CHAOS NATURAE: Chaos, Complexity & Alchemy”
We are agents of chaos. Alchemy and complexity bridge the gap between psychology, the arts and sciences. By applying contemporary perspectives of chaos theory, complexity theory and fractal geometry we can discard outworn conceptions of health based on ideals of regularity, set points and normative statistics in favour of models that emphasize unique moments, variability, and irregularity. We can explore philosophical and spiritual implications of contemporary science for life sciences at the interface between artistic, scientific and spiritual aspects of therapy, healing and personal development.
