“The Spiritual Alchemical Bodies in the Hermetic Tradition”
Presented by: Tommy Westlund of Stockholm, Sweden
Tommy Westlund is a trained therapist in psychosynthesis, and since 1990 has pursued studies and research in esotericism and the Western Hermetic tradition. With an academic background in psychology, the history of religion, and the history of ideas, he writes and lectures internationally on esotericism, alchemy, the Golden Dawn, Gnosticism, Martinism, and Freemasonry.
He is one of the founders of the initiatic Order of the Sodalitas Rosae+Crucis & Solis Alati, which perpetuates many of the old esoteric currents and Hermetic filiations of Europe, and he is also the Director of the Swedish Alchemical Academy, which offers alchemical courses, workshops, travels, and literature.
Tommy has the highest degree (X) in the Swedish Rite of Freemasonry and has held his position as Deputy Master of one of Sweden’s oldest S:t John lodges, St Erik (originated in 1756) for the past six years now.
He continues to serve as Archivist of the Swedish Masonic Grand Archive, a position he has held since 2009 and as Secretary of the Swedish Masonic Education Committee (since 2012).
(Tommy is also a member of the oldest Provincial Grand Lodge of the Royal Order of Scotland.)
