Kyphi ~ Of Spirit and Art

The other day I posted about Kyphi making and all its controversial parts. That post has received hundreds of hits. That can only mean one thing -- people are deeply interested in this artform, as they should be. I think when one embarks upon walking the Kyphi path (thank you, Dabney Rose), they learn things about themselves, about nature, and especially about their spiritual focus, and their capacity for spirituality in general. When we focus on what we're actually doing during the process of creating Kyphi, and that it's not about mixing together of various 'correct' resins and herbs with wine and honey and voila! It is about the truth of what Kyphi represents. As I mentioned in the last Kyphi post, the process of creating Kyphi, particularly based on the Edfu Temple formulation, is a process of resurrection. You become a humble and undeserving creator of something that represents all the wonder that the Universe has to teach -- you create life where there was none. Dramatic, yes, but this is the mind-set one must have when creating Kyphi. Must have, or you may as well be making cake from a box mix.

    1. I think it's a great way to connect potential natural perfumers to the spirit of perfumery to practice with Kyphi first. It certainly changed my way of thinking about perfumery.
