Alchemy and Thaumaturgy are probably the two things about the occult that I hold the most interest in. Since there is a place here on the forums for non-alchemical discussion, I figured I would post here.

Does anyone have any good sources for learning more on the subject? Trial and error is long, and I know that not a lot of stuff is often published for many obvious reasons. That being said... If anyone has any forums, books, or other similar things that teach or discuss legitimate thaumaturgy (or even psychic development that isn't mostly nonsense), I would appreciate it. Or, we could even discuss on the matter here. I believe alchemy, thaumaturgy, theurgy and meditation all go hand-in-hand towards accomplishing the great work.

I highly recommend the work of Franz Bardon. He has three main books which provide detailed theory and practical steps towards psychic development.

Initiation into Hermetics
The Practice of Magical Evocation
The Key to the True Quabbalah

There is also a very good forum focused specifically on magic which I enjoy:

Studio Arcanis

It’s a forum aimed towards advanced practitioners of a number of traditions.


There are also a few threads here on our forum which might interest you:

Ritual Magic in Alchemical Processes
White or Black Magic
Talisman Ritual
Sorcery for Immortality and Transmutation of Metals

Thank you, I will look over these things over the next couple of months.

I was perusing through the Initiation Into Hermetics, it seems to have some of what I'm looking for without any of the nonsense you find in other books that make promises similar to this, and it also doesn't go out of its way to make any disclaimers. I will definitely devote more time than I initially anticipated to this.

Right on, glad you find it appealing. My favorite part about Bardon's work, which I hadn't seen in a lot of other 'instructional' books, is that he divides the training into practices for the physical, mental and psychic bodies -- after giving a fairly clear definition of these planes of existence.

And to connect Bardon's work to another resource I mentioned, Studio Arcanis has a sub-forum dedicated to him and his practices:
