Hermeticism or alchemy is the sacred science of nature by which human beings in all times and places have sought to unite Heaven and Earth-divinity, cosmos, earth, and humanity-for the sake of the world. Dedicated to healing and harmony, it has accompanied each religious epoch and every revelation from India and China to the Abrahamic West. In a sense, it is the primal cosmological revelation: the common element in all spiritual traditions. Nevertheless, in the revival of spiritual traditions and practices, Hermeticism and alchemy-like Nature herself-have been largely ignored. Green Hermeticism proposes that it is time to explore not only our ancient masters' "inner" sciences, but also their sciences of Nature.
