Big Changes for the School
As we come upon the end of another School session, we’ve been talking about what has worked in the School, and what needs changing and adjusting. As with all of life, constant evolution is the rule in our business and School, and so we will be making some changes going forward.
This year we started offering mineral Spagyric classes to our “graduate” students, those who have gone through all the plant work Modules we offer. Our new lab space allows us to do this more complex and difficult work, and enough students have gotten to the high levels of skill needed, that we were excited to make this next step together.
In our first mineral course in August we taught students to create extractions of minerals, such as tincture of gold, as well as oils of gemstones, such as ruby and emerald. The class was challenging, enjoyable, and rewarding for everyone involved, and it has inspired us to expand this next level of Spagyrics in our personal work and in what we teach.
Because of the skill level needed for mineral work, we will only be offering it at short, in-person intensives, since we feel it cannot be safely taught online. At the same time, the lab skills we do teach through our regular online curriculum are needed for safe mineral work, so they will be pre-requisites for our new mineral classes.
To open up space and time for this next step, we will begin to phase out the Spagyric curriculum we have been teaching for the past several years. This means that after December 31 of this year, we will no longer be accepting new students at the entry-level Know Thyself Module, and as the last group of students enrolls in the course and works though the Modules, each one will close and not be offered again.
If you are interested in studying Spagyrics with us for its own sake, or as the required background for our future mineral courses, you must enroll and start your studies with us by the end of this year.
As an incentive to get started on this new path of study and work, we are discounting enrollment in Know Thyself to $200, a third off the regular price.
To get started, visit this page for the complete schedule of Modules. There, you will find a list of the next and final sessions for each one, so that you know the schedule you’ll need to keep if you wish to complete the plant program. If you are interested, there is a link to enroll in Know Thyself and start your studies there.
We look forward to this new direction in our work, and we’re excited to share it with our students, current and new. We hope this is a positive and inspiring development for you- and that we will see some of you in class soon!
