If you are looking to learn about about alchemy, not just book theory mind you, but practical hands on alchemy of both physical-laboratory, as well as the little known and understood unique methods of spagyric spiritual alchemy, this is one of the few places in the world that you can receive an accurate and authentic alchemical education.

John H Reid III is recognized as a living authority in practical and spiritual alchemy. He has been studying and practicing alchemy for nearly thirty years and has developed an approach to teaching the often obtuse subject matter of the Royal Art in a way that is easy to understand, engaging, informative, and life transforming.

In the mid 90's the publication of John's first book the "Minor Opus a.k.a John Reid's Course on Practical Alchemy" aroused considerable interest. It has been hailed as an outstanding work on plant alchemy. Thousands of people from around the world have cut their alchemical teeth on this seminal text, and hundreds of websites have based a large part of their alchemical content around it. It is in fact cited on Wikipedia as a detailed online course in Plant Alchemy. Though the text to the second edition of the Minor Opus can be found on many websites, this site is the only that will have the third edition material as we begin to roll it out later this year. You can find the "Minor Opus" text here.
