In this special episode of Occult of Personality podcast, artist and author David Chaim Smith returns to the show to discuss his most recent book, Deep Principles of Kabbalistic Alchemy.
David Chaim Smith is a mystic, Kabbalist, artist, and author. You can find him online at http://www.davidchaimsmith.com
. His previously published books include The Kabbalistic Mirror of Genesis, The Sacrificial Universe, The Blazing Dew of Stars, and The Awakening Ground. His most recent book, self-published
in 2017, is entitled Deep Principles of Kabbalistic Alchemy. I was fortunate that David asked me to edit the text and have had time to deeply consider the things he's going to address in this unique presentation including a radical mystical approach referred to as the gnosemic view; a concept referred to as the ground, or the ground of all being; alchemical mercury; and the tzimtzum, or contraction, a Kabbalistic creation myth. The ideas espoused in this podcast are radically mystical. I find them incredibly interesting and worthy of attention. I hope you do as well. And I want to express my deep gratitude to David for sharing with us.
