SCROLL DOWN TO SEE THE PAINTINGS BY MARLENE SEVEN BREMNER WE ARE TALKING ABOUT DURING THE INTERVIEW
This week we have a refreshing interview with Marlene Seven Bremner, an American artist and writer presently residing in New Mexico. While a student of polarity therapy, Seven initiated into Jungian alchemical teaching, which in turn flowed into her personal study and distillation of the Hermetica. This discovery process included visual art, textual exploration, and ultimately the writing of a full manuscript.
Seven has recently released her first title with Inner Traditions, Hermetic Philosophy and Creative Alchemy: The Emerald Tablet, the Corpus Hermeticum, and the Journey Through the Seven Spheres. The interview is a conversation aligned to her text, appealing to both the new and seasoned students of the Hermetica.
Seven’s unassuming, lunar quiet blends with solar scholarly intensity as she traverses the conversation. Subjects explored in dialogue with Rudolf range from the alchemy of oil painting; the call to expression through Logos; channeling poetry, and the creative alchemy of the ascent through the Seven Spheres. Bremner soulfully articulates the devotional-contemplative hermetic lifestyle, worldly input, and the influence of the natural elemental balance in Place.
Seven makes candid acknowledgement of the importance of attaining balance between the inspiration and distraction of artistic community. Seven and Rudolf specifically explore her painting Harmonia Elementorum, which is present on her WEBSITE (click here or into the link section further down)
Her website also features poetry including “Circulato” (dated May 2018), beginning: “I never learned how to dive. I only learned how to sink, in waters deep, deeper than three times my self and dark with the blood of my ancestors…”
Enjoy the still waters running deep in this conversation!
