(Greek) Spagyria or spagyric medicine comes from the Greek “spao,” to extract, and “ageiro,” to reunite.
"Alchemy, as demonstrated by two of its most prominent exponents, Basil Valentine and Paracelsus, is concerned not only with the attainment of the Philosopher's Stone, but with the preparation of medicines, by which is meant the separation of the ethereal from the gross, the true secret of the Spagyric Art." - Manly P. Hall
"Therefore learn Alchemy, which is otherwise called Spagyria. This teaches you to discern between the true and the false. Such a Light of Nature is it that it is a mode of proof in all things, and walks in light." - Paracelsus, Paramirum, Lib. I., c. 3.
"...when the medieval spagyrists referred to plants, they were not referring to vegetation, but to the plant human being. Therefore, the entire spagyrics of Philipus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (Aureolus Paracelsus) and his disciples is absolutely sexual. " - Samael Aun Weor, Treatise of Sexual Alchemy
