The Alchemy of JK Rowling

In the light of the Alchemical Wedding of Christian Rosycross

by Hans Andréa

Book Reviews


by Anneke Stokman, Netherlands

The seven parts of Harry Potter hold millions in their thrall. The reason why becomes clear in this book. Harry Potter is universal symbolism cast into an exciting tale, penetrating deeply into the human subconscious. This is why it is universally embraced, translated and filmed.

Hans Andréa unveils this hidden symbolism with convincing enthusiasm, opening a new dimension to the reader. The Rosicrucian publication The Alchemical Wedding of Christian Rosycross from 1616 is his guiding principle and benchmark. That too is a mystery story with a symbolism that is clearly familiar to the author, and which he shows can be compared one-on-one with that of Harry Potter. And that cannot be otherwise, because both convey the same universal story, each for a different time, in a different form. Harry Potter is the latent divinity in your heart; it is about you and about the possibilities of all humanity to awaken in a new dimension. Allow yourself to be carried away by the author's blistering persuasion, and Harry Potter will never be the same for you again.

A far-reaching and enriching experience.

by Janine Paliwoda, German translator, Switzerland

When I read this book, it was clear to me that I wanted to translate it into German so that a lot more readers have the chance to delve into the process of awakening their inner, divine spark, the “Rose of the Heart” by listening to the same inner voice that Harry Potter followed throughout the Septology. It is the way to become true, original human beings again with the help of the most brilliant spiritual interpretation of Harry Potter.
