Iona Miller | St Germain’s Hermetic Garden & Tower of Eternity

St. Germain's Hermetic Garden & Tower of Eternity, by Iona Miller, 2010 from Iona Miller on Vimeo.

Set to the music composed by St Germain, walk in magician and philosopher St Germain’s footsteps in his last home, mystery school, temple and laboratory. He lived at Louisenlund in the later 1700s with his patron Landgrave Karl von Hessen-Kassel (1744-1836). The park at Louisenlund (about an hour’s drive northwest of Kiel) was laid out in the form of an initiatic journey that involved the candidate passing through a dense wood finding his way through a labyrinth and encountering various alchemical and allegorical images along the way to secret underground rooms and a Gothic Tower with an alchemy lab in the basement.
