                  Mad About Saffron: The Citrinitas Stage in Alchemy

Jung’s herculean undertaking to explore and make sense of the seemingly impenetrable world of alchemy is nothing short of remarkable, a foundation for others to build on. Jung noted that alchemists largely stopped referring to the Citrinitas stage in the 15th or 16th century and he too wrote very little else about it. Hillman provides some interesting comments about this.
    Readings from Jung, Von Franz, Hillman and Edinger provide valuable  insights into the alchemical process and offer much food for thought and discussion. 

Roman Rogulski is a long time student of Jung's approach to dreams and depth psychology. 
He recently retired from a long and rewarding career as an underwriter for the world's largest life reinsurer to devote more time to what matters most.

Rubedo, and Sulphur Too

The Rubedo state is usually considered to be the culmination of the alchemical process.
        However the colour red is present in the very beginning as sulphur, of which far more is written than on rubedo.
       We will look at both aspects of red and see what qualities manifest in each.

Murray Shugar is the editor of the Montreal Jung Society newsletter and its website.
    Being an Aries he is inordinately fond of red.
