Arcanum I


Arcanum I: Alchemical Tincturing Workshop May 11th!

Coming this Autumn is a one day workshop (10am-5.30pm) covering all the basics you need to know to start crafting your own herbal tinctures.  This is a unique training from the lineage of the International Alchemy Guild which traces it’s origins back to Renaissance Prague and the court of Emperor Rudolf II.

The workshop will cover:

  • Hermetic (alchemical) philosophy,
  • How to craft tinctures for any plant you wish to work with using basic household equipment,
  • Planetary correspondences,
  • Basic labwork,
  • Alchemical meditation – the macrocosm and microcosm.
  • Magically consecrating a workspace.

All students will leave the workshop with their own alchemically prepared tincture.  Students who wish to start their own tincture may bring some optional materials to the workshop which will be outlined in an email once the application form and fee ($85/80 concession) is received.

This workshop acts as a foundation for further studies in alchemy and the Hermetic arts which students may wish to build upon in the future (Arcanum II through to Arcanum V).

Students who wish to attend need to fill out an application form (below), scan (or take a photo with your phone) and email it to mail@benjaminturale.com.  Places are strictly limited to 10.
