This is a very special year for Alchemie,
all has been leading up to this.

This year is the 9.

It is the end of a cycle.

The seed opens and a new life breaks through.

The End is the Beginning.

What will your new beginning bring?

Dance till the stars come down from the rafters
Dance, Dance, Dance till you drop.
~W.H. Auden

Meet both the sunrise and the sunset at the Charles Bridge!

Dance as the sun comes up and goes down over St. Vitus,
on Summer Solstice, when all the alchemical formulae of Prague have been ignited!
