Hermetic/alchemical meditation

I originally worked on this series of Hermetic/alchemical meditation exercises about 20 years ago and they were originally published in the early issues of the Hermetic Journal 1978-81. They were the foundation for a elaborate system of meditative exercises, based on alchemical and hermetic ideas, which I was working on at that time. - Adam McLean
