Are you familiar with the Rosarium series of alchemical drawings? Jung wrote about them and at the time I was studying his commentaries I found them very interesting, so much so that I used several in my "Consummation" chapter of my book.

But when an image spontaneously came up for me a few days ago and led me back to the drawings I found myself identifying with them in an entirely new, personal, even literal rather than metaphoric or symbolic way, and speaking deeply and profoundly about the process by which "the two become one."

Not having my books with me when the image come up I searched for "rosarium alchemy" which took me to the present day motherlode of alchemical research--Glasgow--and to libraries at Glasgow U and the U of Strathclyde.
