Spagyrics is a branch of medicinal alchemy that enhances the healing properties already existing in plants. Developed by Paracelsus, the magus and alchemist of the early 16th century, spagyrics is a holistic therapy that promotes healing at all levels of the human being-body, soul, and spirit.
Clare Goodrick-Clarke is a homeopath and honorary fellow of the University of Exeter, where she lectures on the esoteric body and the history of alchemy. She studied with Manfred M. Junius, author of Spagyrics, and she is the author of The Hermetic Art of Alchemy and coauthor (with Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke) of G.R.S. Mead and the Gnostic Quest. She lives in Devon, England.
