Nigredo
$3.14 or more per month 37 patrons
First Alchemical Stage

In alchemy, nigredo, or blackness, means putrefaction or decomposition. Many alchemists believed that as a first step in the pathway to the philosopher’s stone all alchemical ingredients had to be cleansed and cooked extensively to a uniform black matter. In analytical psychology, the term became a metaphor for the dark night of the soul, when an individual confronts the shadow within.

Albedo
$7.11 or more per month 6 patrons
Second Alchemical Stage


Albedo means “whiteness”. Following the chaos or massa confusa of the nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio - the washing away of impurities. In this process, the subject is divided into two opposing principles to be later coagulated to form a unity of opposites or coincidentia oppositorum during rubedo. It is a phase where insight into shadow projections are realized, and inflated ego and unneeded conceptualizations are removed from the psyche.


No extra content, just excellent karma points! :) Thank you for giving a little more! You’re contribution is helping me create more videos, lectures and books.

Citrinitas
$11.11 or more per month 5 patrons
Third Alchemical Stage


Citrinitas is a term given by alchemists to “yellowness” and literally referred to “transmutation of silver into gold” or “yellowing of the lunar consciousness.” In alchemical philosophy, citrinitas stood for the drawing of the “solar light” inherent in one’s being, and that the reflective “lunar or soul light” was no longer necessary. In the Jungian archetypal schema, citrinitas refers to the wise old man (or woman) archetype.

Rubedo
$19 or more per month 5 patrons
Fourth Alchemical Stage

 

Rubedo is a Latin word meaning “redness” that was adopted by alchemists to define the fourth and final major stage in their magnum opus. Both gold and the philosopher’s stone were associated with the color red, as rubedo signalled alchemical success, and the end of the great work. The Self manifests itself in “wholeness,” a point in which a person discovers their true nature. Rubedo is also known by the Greek word, Iosis.


Thank you for your generous contribution!
