Our journey into the ancient future begins with this inaugural edition of Wild Alchemy Journal. Each issue will explore one of the classical elements of earth, air, fire, water and aether. These fundamental forces provide the foundations from which to investigate how we place ourselves, and how we are placed, within our environment across the three perspective planes of physical-material, mental-emotional and spiritual-energetic. This is the EARTH issue: Our planet and the ground beneath our feet, our physical world, matter and form, flesh and bones, structure and stability, receptivity and creation.
