Background Information
by Russ House, President, The Philosophers of Nature

October 1st through 3rd, 1992 marked the first seminar held by The Philosophers of Nature (then called LPN-USA). Since that time, we have sponsored at least one major seminar annually in the USA. This first seminar of three days duration was held at my home, for about 85 attendees. The lecturers included Jean Dubuis, founder of Les Philosophes des la Nature (LPN), translator Patrice Malézé, Lucile Gerbaut, Yves Arbez, Marc-Gerald Cibard, all of whom traveled to the seminar from France. Etienne Cornaille also attended.

I had met these generous people (excluding Patrice) in May, 1992, at a French-language seminar in Canada. During this seminar, I asked them to come to the US and present a practical workshop for our English-speaking members. They immediately accepted the invitation.

The topics of the first P.O.N. seminar included esotericism and qabala, as well as spagyrics and mineral alchemy. The latter was focused on the way of animated mercury using antimony regulus, and there were at times three propane-fired furnaces going at full blast in the yard to prepare the regulus. Demonstrations included details of the animated mercury path, including purification of regulus, admixture with silver, and distillation of the amalgams. Butter of antimony was prepared, as well. Details on making plant stones were given, as well as numerous valuable keys regarding crystalization and the evolution of matter.

Thanks to the efforts of Anthony House, who painstakingly transcribed these lectures from videotape, you can read here the lectures given by Jean Dubuis and Patrice Malézé. The remaining lectures can not be published at the present time as we do not have the rights to them.

NOTE: Les Philosophes des la Nature (LPN) does not exist today. The sole right to distribute all intellectual properties of Mr. Dubuis is managed by myself, and at the present time, English-language and French-language courses created by Mr. Dubuis are distributed through The Philosophers of Nature, headquartered in the US. Mr. Dubuis is a life-member of this association.
