The Emerald Tablet

The words preserved in the ancient Emerald Tablet contain the essence of the alchemical teachings. Ostensibly concerned with changing base metals into gold, alchemy is in fact dedicated to transforming the lead of self into the gold of spirit. This book traces the roots of alchemy to reveal a practical guide to spiritual growth with hands-on techniques, transformative exercises, and personal testimonials.

What people are saying about this book:

"The teachings of the Emerald Tablet have been a powerful force for transformation during crucial periods in Western culture. Now these deep insights are once again finding illumination through the scholarship of Dennis William Hauck. Every reader who gives this book the thoughtfulness it requires will discover a treasure of inner riches." - Jeffrey Mishlove Ph.D. (Director of Intuition Network; host of PBS-TV's "Thinking Allowed")

"Hauck shares with his readers a remarkable path for spiritual change. THE EMERALD TALBLET combines esoteric wisdom with practical advice; its use of the metaphor of al-chemy to describe transformation follows in the tradition of Carl Jung's depth psychology." - Stanley Krippner Ph.D. (Director of Consciousness Studies, the Saybrook Institute)

"Hauck's book is important to the future frontiers of both medicine and psychology. The material provides the basis for changing current health theories from an emphasis on path-ology to an emphasis on transformation. It explains in clear language with interesting examples the simple, yet complex, steps in transformation and achieving peak potential. It is my hope that providers of mind/body healing would use this information to stimulate their own growth and enhance their ability to practice healthcare." - Marie DiCowden Ph.D. (Director of the Biscayne Institutes of Health)

"The influence of the Emerald Tablet on Western intellectual and spiritual development is an unquestionable fact. Hauck's contribution reflects a serious effort to present this age-old wisdom in a form that is at once intelligible to the modern mind and faithful to its venerable past. Most importantly, Hauck makes an original contribution of personal anecdotes, exercises, and techniques that ultimately brings the Emerald Tablet to life as a practical guide to spiritual transformation on the cusp of the 21st century." - NAPRA Review (May/June 1999)

"In the Hermetic tradition, the physical and metaphysical worlds are mirror images: the transformation of base metal into gold corresponds to the evolution of an ego-dominated person into one who possesses a permanent state of enlightened consciousness. Hauck's elucidation of the laws governing this refinement of energy, such as the Doctrine of Correspondences, the Seven Steps of Transformation, and the Octave of Creation, will strike a chord with students of modern esoteric traditions (who) may find real gold in these teachings." - Publishers Weekly (March 23, 1999)

"The author has done an immense amount of research to make the Emerald Tablet known and understood to those who seek an alchemical transformation into a higher state of consciousness. I cannot think of anything we need more than these time-tested methods to break through to an age of enlightenment and healing for both ourselves and the planet." - Bernyce Barlow (Author, Ecologist, and Therapist)

"Dennis Hauck's THE EMERALD TABLET is a must read for anyone who wants to journey into the mysteries and mysticism of our dormant powers. Use your own imagination while reading this book, and it will open a gateway to your inner soul and beyond." - Uri Geller (Author and Psychic)

"Hauck is a wonderful writer. His writing style is friendly, easy to read, and actually fun!" - Athena Reviews
