Poet, astrologer, scholar, (and more) Emmalea Russo has a new course called The Alchemy of the Word. It explores the seven original planets and their corresponding metals and alchemical processes through the lens of the creative process. Touching on everything from the mysteries of medieval alchemical texts to the poetry of Emily Dickinson, it’s an exploration of esoterica, the imagination, and what it means to create. Emmalea returns to the show to talk about the course specifically and alchemy generally, so tune in and get enlightened (enlightenment not guaranteed).
