John (J.R.) Sedivy, Ph.D., is no stranger to transformation. Born and raised in a small suburb of Cleveland, OH, his sense of adventure and service led him early in life to a series of career changes, including U.S. Marine, systems engineer, CEO of a consumer products firm, and business consultant. Throughout these changes in persona, a common thread emerged: his skill at assimilating large amounts of complex information, breaking this information down to its simplest form, and teaching it to others.
It is thus no coincidence that a spiritual awakening led J.R. to the study of alchemy, or the art of transmutation. His search for spiritual mastery also led him to study and assimilate foundational principles from diverse esoteric traditions including The Ageless Wisdom, Hermetics, Universal Kabbalah, Western Mystery Tradition, Shamanism, Esoteric Teachings, Egyptian Magick, and others. His published book, The Mercury Formula: Three Steps to Self Transformation, distills much of this wisdom into its essence, making it readily accessible and relevant to modern readers.
Today J.R. is an International Alchemy Guild-certified Alchemist, Usui and Karuna Reiki® Master, and Certified Energy Scan Practitioner, as well as a 32nd Degree Mason initiated into the Scottish and York Rites, and Initiate of the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (Rosicrucian Order) and Traditional Martinist Order.
J.R. also holds various academic degrees, including a masters of science in Systems Engineering and an M.B.A. from Johns Hopkins University, a Ph.D. in Modern Alchemy, and doctor honoris causae in Hermetic Science and Occult Science from Albert Schweitzer University.
As a practicing spiritual healer and coach, J.R. uses his vast knowledge of foundational esoteric principles to help spiritual seekers quickly cut through lifetimes of illusion so they can reach their true and highest essence, discover their unique outlet for spiritual service, and bring it to the world in a grounded way that makes true transformation possible.
Many of J.R.’s clients report rapid and intense transformation, often accomplishing in days or weeks goals that they previously believed would take them years to achieve. “Life need not be complex nor difficult,” he says. “There is an underlying simplicity and purity in all things, we just need to get to it and bring it to light.”
