    We should have a unified goal to achieve at this AF Down Under Congress.

    My suggestions: The Volatilization of some salts in essential oil.(Have you ever tried them!?)

    And, perhaps if the numbers are up, I may bring some of the 'Big Boy' chems and we could make an Oil of Luna or something pretty special like that...

    Not sure how Alchemy you guys wanna get. I prefer my baptisms full immersion

    However, also just happy to go with the flow and put some names to faces ect..

    Mr Mixer I think if you spell out exactly what you're going to share or present, then maybe that will help to boost the numbers, simply by other people being interested to learn what you're going to teach.

    I also agree with you about it being good simply being able to put some faces to names.

    I suppose it's only going to be for a few Aussies... Not many of you guys around here... It might end up with just the two of you...

    I also attended an 'Alchemical Congress' of sorts in Australia (in 2013), but not related to this forum... (although I got to speak with Ghetto Alchemist on the phone )

    I am not really interested in social gatherings, even if they're called "alchemical"... If I meet with other Alchemists in the future, it will be most likely 1x1 or in a much smaller group, with circumstances providing not only space for study but also an actual lab to perform experiments and test concepts... Most likely for me - such future meetings will be with people who are not on this forum (with 1 or 2 or 3 exceptions)...

    Okay Ghetto, What sort of arrangements do you currently have as far as lab equipment goes?

    EDIT: You said that you had a big house? Are there others living with you or could it just end up with me and you setting up Australias awesome-st set up all on our own as Andro suggested. Have you spoken to many other aussies on this forum? Whats your insurance like? Should I bring ether?!?.. no... I probably shouldn't bring ether.... I do have some reeeeal great ideas brewing for this, and the time frame is great. I was looking to kick off my alchemy company next spring so this will be a great opportunity to share the things I've prepared and are preparing

    I will also be looking for distributors, who live in other states all around Australia, and what better people to share alchemical elixirs with Australians, then other fellow Australian alchemists!!!a

    I'll give a great 'Alchemist only membership' into the company

    Not sure if you've heard of "Herb a Life" but it will be a similar pyramid system, get products cheap, sell them for double, while also signing up other people to distribute and getting 1-2% of each of their sales also ect...

    (In truth, none of the initial products getting released are Alchemical at all, I will just be testing the 'business' waters with general natural medicinal preparations first, then if the first year doesnt bring me to my knees then I will release the good stuff)

    Raving, sorry...

    I; Mr. Elixir Will be sharing several demonstrations at Ghetto Alchemist's 'Down Under Alchemy Doof/Congress'

    Firstly, I'm sure we will ALL be preparing a basic plant spagyric from start to finish. (Hopefully with something we find in the forest, but im sure we'll have back-ups)

    Secondly, I will create prior to the event, and encase with a document, a special substance dear to my heart, Quintessence of Tumeric (or maybe some other herb) and we can all get a taste of it and see really and truly what a well prepared Elixir should be; its character and its penetrative virtues.

    Thirdly, depending on equipment and time constraints, we may visit a basic spagyric of metals, and observe a dry distillation of.... we should probably keep it mild here, Ghetto A. probably has neighbours..... maybe potassium? calcium? Sodium? If we get numbers we can have a vote... I'm happy to do the more desired metals, just depends what Ghetto A. is comfortable with.

    And last but not least, I will use the oils to attempt some advanced metallic spagyrics, which I have not attempted before, but the philosophy seems sound to me, and I hope for some pretty amazing results.

    I hope to also be a bit more reserved by the time congress comes

    Even if it just ends up me and you mate, at least we know we are the most rocking it Aussie Alchemists in the World!

    Regarding the house...the area you guys will be staying in is fully self contained and separate and you'll have it to yourself/yourselves. I live in a granny flat which is separate. Depending on what happens this year, I may or may not have 2 children staying with me in November (one primary school, one high school). But they wont be staying in main house regardless.

    Lab and lab equipment....

    The lab will be the kitchen temporarily repurposed. It has stainless steel bench tops and quite large space with plenty of room and plenty of bench area. I'll put up photos later.
    No extractor, so no reactions that generate toxic gasses.

    Lab equipment is confined to distillation glassware, with round bottom flasks and a few adapters for vacuum line, thermometer etc. Having said that, I could assemble just about any sort of distillation train that you can imagine, save for a steam distillation. But I'll make sure to acquire a couple of flasks to add a steam distillation capability in the meantime.

    If there's anything else you need to do, such as filtering, or heated sand bath.... even though I don't have standard lab glassware, I still have a ghetto solution. So you can ask and see.

    Haven't spoken to the other Aussies, but there's at least one that I know of, plus a kiwi. Problem is they only seem to pop in from time to time.

    My house insurance is up to scratch, but any risky procedures will have to be outdoors over dirt.

    But there is a suitable area in backyard for procedures with risk of fire or explosion. Will put up pics later.
    Only procedures I would prohibit would be ones with toxic byproducts, otherwise you'll be right to do whatever you want.

    You can bring ether if you want, but it's not required by me.

    I'm looking forward to whatever you have to pitch regarding growing a business. I'm at a bit of a crossroad in life right now anyway, and looking forward to a new direction.

    Lastly I'm guessing that Andro is correct, and that this will prob just be you and me, but of course anyone else is welcome at any time, even at the last minute. Eg you don't have to book early in order to attend, mark it on your calendar, and if you decide to attend, even the day before, then still welcome.

    If more than 50 % of the participants are members of this forum I would class it as an official congress. Why not. Although I cannot personally make it due to distance... although I plan to go Down Under at some point.

    Neither do I, which is what I wrote in the initial post of this thread.

    I take psychedelic/sacred plant-work very seriously. I also do not feel comfortable doing it with people who do not feel the same way. I am certainly not saying that this is the case with everyone that has attended these Congresses over time... but there is "some" of this I feel. The path I am on is very important to me... if I did not walk on this path I would either be dead, insane or in prison. I cannot waste the little precious time I have catering to psychedelic tourism. That is not my calling.

    But I must say this is highly improbable to ever occur with professionals... or even amateurs.

    No, only one reason... I have a "space" there.

    That makes sense too. I thought maybe something to do with easy access to 'vegetation'.

    Not at all. That was just the planets aligning.

    Another reason I said there will not be any congress in Amsterdam was because I wasn't sure I would have a place there. Now it is offical. Amsterdam is dumped. Time has come for some changes.
