Welcome to the Spagyricus School of Alchemy.
This first in the series of classes introduces the History and Philosophy of the Alchemical Tradition and its practical application in the plant world.
Robert Bartlett, World renowned author and lecturer on Practical Alchemy, offers his decades of experience, knowledge, and experimentation in this unique and informative Class. He has studied under Frater Albertus, Paracelsus Research Society SLC, completed his degree in Chemistry at Boise State and appointed Chief Chemist and Director of Research at Paralab, the commercial offshoot of the then established Paracelsus College, SLC, UT until its dissolution in 1984.
In these classes you are offered the experience of a Chemist of many years as well as a Parachemist of Alchemical techniques and Knowledge. Some of his successful students have been Sajah Popham, Evolutionary herbalism, Catamara Rosarium, Rosarium Blends, Avery Hopkins, Kymia Arts, Phoenix Aurelius and many others, as well as Naturopaths and Acupuncturists, and other Alternative Practitioners that have enhanced their healing toolboxes.
You will learn how to separate the Three alchemical essentials from plants, known to the Ancients as the Salt, Sulfur, and Mercury, and to purify those essentials using a variety of techniques both traditional and unique proprietary to our Classes.
You will also learn how to recombine those purified essentials into a medicinal agent with miraculous power, creating your own basic tinctures to fortify your body both subtle and sublime corresponding to the 7 planetary energies affecting all living things.
You also get practical hands on activities using easy-to-find materials and equipment so that anyone can do this at home, opening the way for a lifetime of powerful medicines at your disposal!
This class also serves as an intro to advanced alchemical works in the animal, (no animals are harmed in this), mineral and metals, long recognized as powerful agents in Ayurveda and Western Alchemy.
Classes are intensive. We encourage staying on site as much teaching and lively discussion and checking of experiments goes on well into the night. We have limited accommodations. A cabin, shared trailer options and tent camping space, which includes use of a common room trailer for showering and cooking (although often shared bbq and potlucks are common).
