Patrick Rivière has just left us at the age of 68. To pay tribute to him and salute his memory, here is a presentation that we filmed in his endearing and erudite company in the fall of 2014. Our thoughts go out to his family, his loved ones and his many students.

Alchemy and its internal paths
The enigmatic mention "Solve and coagula" appears in the frontispiece of many alchemical grimoires. And if, instead of the usual translation "Dissolved and reunited", this sentence rather meant: "Blood and coagulation"... ? Patrick Rivière, renowned alchemist and historian of religions, proposes here to make us discover the different ways of internal alchemy, this alchemy which focuses on body fluids and secretions.
