My name is Andrew Camargo. I have been studying Archetypal Shamanism, Entheogenic Spirituality, Alchemy, Jungian Psychology, Modern Mythology and Visionary Art for the past 17 years.
I earned my B.A. from Yale University in 2002 studying Literature and Psychoanalysis, when I was introduced to the work of C.G. Jung, and the mysterious Art of Alchemy. In 2009 I earned my M.A. from the Pacifica Graduate Institute studying Jungian Psychology and Mythology. Since 2006 I have participated in and extensively journaled over 400 Ayahuasca ceremonies in the Santo Daime tradition.
Throughout my studies, I realized that the art of spiritual Alchemy was Western civilization’s own version of shamanic initiatory wisdom, and as such, it had something very unique and valuable to offer the modern seeker – provided its arcane symbolic language could be decoded. So I embarked on a sustained effort to decode the magical connection between Esoteric Alchemy and Entheogenic Shamanism, Jungian Psychology, and Modern Mythology...and nothing could have prepared me for what I discovered: A magic key to unlock treasure beyond compare!
I now offer the key to the same treasure in the form of this school, The School of Modern Soul Science, to the ones courageously seeking this particular sort of knowledge.
