Guild Apprenticeship Program

Alchemy Guild Initiation & Certification Program








NOTICE: The Alchemy Apprenticeship Program is not currently accepting new students due to a lack of qualified instructors. We do not anticipate re-opening this program until June 2016 while we certify new instructors. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 

ALCHEMY GUILD APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

In this program, the practical and spiritual principles of alchemy are revealed in a combination of open instruction and personal gnosis. There are three traditional phases of initiation. During the Philosophicum Phase, the student  develops an understanding of the basic principles and philosophy of alchemy. During the Theoreticum Phase, the student learns to apply the principles and control the results. In the final Practicum Phase, the student demonstrates his or her abilities in the real world. There is no time limit on the program. Most students take 2-3 years to complete it.

You do not have to apply to be accepted into the Alchemy Guild Initiation and Certification Program. Simply complete the program path(s) in which you are interested. Because of the alchemy resources available for students and advice from other members, it is recommended you join the Alchemy Guild at www.AlchemyGuild.org. Download the Alchemy Apprenticeship Program flyer.

Students may pursue a strictly spiritual path or undertake the practical path, which involves laboratory work with plants and minerals. Students may also follow a master path that includes both spiritual and practical alchemy. Only instructors certified by the International Alchemy Guild can participate in this program. To track your progress in the Guild's initiation program, Download the Student Record Form.  When your program is complete, please submit the Student Record for verification. This process may take up to two weeks. You may present it to your instructor, or fax to (916) 760-0823, or mail to: Alchemy Guild, P.O. Box 22309, Sacramento, CA 95822-0309.
