This is a multiple part workshop series. SPAGYRIC PREPARATIONS DEMONSTRATION - PART 1 EXTRACTING THE ESSENCE
This class will show you how herbal tinctures can be purified and concentrated using ancient alchemical theories for creating remedies that get stronger with age. An overview of useful equipment, and the importance of astrology in the laboratory will be included. Please bring writing materials if you wish to take notes. A distillation, of the herb harvested at last year's Conference is planned during this class.
SPAGYRIC PREPARATIONS DEMONSTRATION - PART 2 EXTRACTING THE MINERAL SALTS
This class will show you how the unique mineral content of plants can be extracted from the remaining plant matter after distillation. It's later re-united with the distilled essence of the herbal tincture to create a spagyric remedy. Please bring writing materials if you wish to take notes. A calcination, of the herb harvested at last year's Conference is planned during this class.
SPAGYRIC PREPARATIONS DEMONSTRATION - PART 3 COMBINING THE ESSENCE & THE MINERAL SALTS
Here we just watch the energetic combination of the two liquids created during Part 1 and 2. This is a good time for final questions and discussions about alchemy.
