More About the Author
Dennis William Hauck is an author, consultant, and lecturer working to facilitate personal and planetary transformation through the application of the ancient principles of alchemy. He writes and lectures on the universal principles of physical, psychological, and spiritual transformation to a wide variety of audiences that range from scientists and business leaders to religious and New Age groups. Hauck's interest in alchemy began while he was still in graduate school at the University of Vienna, where he was initiated into the craft by a practicing alchemist from Prague.
Hauck has since translated a number of important alchemy manuscripts dating back to the fourteenth century and has published over a dozen books on the subject. His "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Alchemy" (Penguin Alpha 2008) is considered the best introduction to alchemy available today, and his "The Emerald Tablet: Alchemy for Personal Transformation" (Penguin 1999) presents Hauck's original research about the mysterious artifact that inspired over 3,000 years of alchemy. His "Sorcerer's Stone: A Beginner's Guide to Alchemy" (Penguin Citadel 2004) is an entertaining introduction to practical and spiritual alchemy. He is currently working on a sequel to "The Emerald Tablet" entitled "Secret Science of the Emerald Tablet: The Spiritual Chemistry of Alchemy."
His books have been featured in USA Today, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, Harper's, and hundreds of other periodicals. He has been interviewed on over 300 radio and TV programs, including "NPR's Morning Edition," "Sally Jessy Raphael," "Geraldo," "The O'Reilly Factor," "Extra," and "CNN Reports."
Hauck holds lectures and workshops throughout the world on the various aspects of practical, mental, and spiritual alchemy. He is founder of the International Alchemy Conference (AlchemyConference.com), an instructor in alchemy (AlchemyStudy.com), and is president of the International Alchemy Guild (AlchemyGuild.org).
