A-Ma Alchemy of Love or Playing the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras is a historical spiritual novel set in the 17th century Macao (Macau) that follows lives and spiritual insights of settlers of this little peninsula in the middle of China.

This magic place, that is rapidly growing as a center of trade offers a melting pot for the highest practice ever, the alchemy of humanity, creating an energy matrix that will change the lives of generations to come. We are transferred into the time of strong religious clashes and dogmas, and the scientific revolution, where our protagonists join the fight of the enlightened minds of the time, such as Giordano Bruno and Da-Vinci for the establishment of the New World. Through Ruben, a Portuguese Jesuit Priest who came to China to convert the Chinese into Christians, and through Ama and her family, friends, followers and enemies. Joining their attempts to learn from both Western and Eastern philosophical thought and civilization.

All the events and manuscripts mentioned within the book: the Dutch attack to Macao 24th of June 1622, the Reform of the Chinese Calendar during 1630s, Father Schall’s Appointment to the Chinese Board of Mathematicians (during 1650s), Witches Hunt, and Witches Manual, etc, are carefully researched historical facts. The book uses history to create the connection between actions of the individuals that live surrounded by magic. A-Ma takes us on an exploration journey discovering the secrets of the bond we all have created during the millions of life-times on Earth, the bond of consciousness and suffering. Will Ruben manage to break this bond and enter into the world of spiritual transformation discovering his own divine potential?

Will love that guides him, transform him, will his friend, guru and lover, Ama manage to break the matrix of habits, thoughts and patterns that surrounds them? Will Ama’s friends manage to reach enlightenment, will human society manage to shred the veil of dogmas that encircles it, or will the forces of Dark Ages be stronger or will Ama be prosecuted as a witch? Interspersed with graphic sketches of life in Europe and Macao in 16th century, this work presents a historic and imaginative fable of the Chinese & Portuguese way of life within this little settlement that at the time could have been a centre of spiritual progress of the Age of Reason.

The book has 12 chapters, starting with the Play of the Glass Bead Game with Pythagoras and entering a Universal Portal of Consciousness to Ancient Worlds and Civilizations, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, 17th Century Portugal, and China.
