Whitley refers to this week’s guest, Prince Stash Klossowski de Rola, as one of the most remarkable people in the world–but also essentially unknown outside of a rarefied group of cognoscenti and a circle of friends. Stash is one of the world’s leading experts on alchemy and a deeply informed student of Gnosticism, and both subjects are covered in this interview. Whitley and Stash have been friends for many years, and the warmth and insight of that friendship is on display in every moment of this enlightening discussion. Stash talks about such things as the spiritualizaton of matter and the “mattering” of spirit, both profoundly informed by his knowledge of alchemy.
But don’t expect a discussion of alembics and secret formulas and turning base metal into gold. This is about esoteric alchemy as it was and is practiced in its secret truth. Stash also talks about his long history in music, his friendships with people like Mick Jagger and many others, and the true nature of tantra and the tantric quest.
Only on Dreamland. Only from Whitley.
Enjoy this profound journey into a virtually unknown world, and meet a man who almost never emerges into the public eye.
