Why Tertia?

Tertia stands apart as a unique and comprehensive alchemy program that immerses you in the intricate world of metallic works. Over 12 months, you will receive rich video content, extensive written materials, and hands-on experiments, all structured to allow you to progress at your own pace. Each month focuses on a specific topic, providing a deep dive into the alchemical processes and principles that underpin the transformation of metals and their corresponding planetary archetypes.

Your Instructor - Master Alchemist Robert Allen Bartlett

Modern Times: The Second Alchemical Renaissance

Robert Bartlett, a master alchemist with over 5 decades of experience, leads Tertia. His extensive background as a chemist, author, and lecturer ensures that you receive unparalleled guidance in both theoretical and practical aspects of alchemy. We will also have guest teachers occasionally joining, so you will benefit from a diverse range of expertise. We are so fortunate to live in a time to receive instruction from a master like Robert. It’s truly an honor and inspiration to be gifted this opportunity.

What You Will Learn:

~Months 1-2: Menstruums: Explore the dry path and the wet path, preparing solvents like sal ammoniac, alkahests, and vitriol. The first two months will allow you to prepare necessary solvents and gather materials to begin the work. These modules will also address safety, equipment and chemical orientation.
~Month 3: Acetate Path -A deep dive into acetate work. The acetate path is one of the “keys” favored by Frater Albertus and Robert. The acetate study is a very comprehensive module providing you with a solid foundation to approach the metallic realm.

~Months 4-10: Planetary Metals: Each month is dedicated to one of the seven visible planets and their corresponding metals. Understand their archetypes, nature, and the best approaches to working with them. With the foundation in place from the first 3 months, we will now begin working with the metals.

~Month 11: Antimony: Delve into the Earth archetype while approaching work with the Black Dragon, the enigmatic metal antimony and its alchemical significance. Robert has a special affinity for antimony and has devoted much of his alchemy career to unlocking this work.

~Month 12: The Stone: Culminate your studies with an overview of the philosopher’s stone, the pinnacle and Magnum Opus of your alchemy journey.

~Additional Comprehensive Topics: Cover crucial aspects such as analytics, cell salts, safety, furnaces and equipment. Integrate Hermetic principles, the roots of alchemy, and an introduction to magic and the wisdom of the Emerald Tablet.
