Alchemy





Episode #128 of The C.O.N. Gabriel D. Roberts and Aaron Cheak join us for a chat about the concepts behind “Gnosis” and “Alchemy.” Both experts in their field, it’s worth looking at…

In support of my 3rd book, Hipgnosis and the Dr. Aaron Cheak’s book, Alchemical Traditions, we are embarking on an ambitious tour across North America and Europe.
