Since 1977, Antero Alli has been developing a ritual technology for Self-Initiation--a paratheatre medium--combining techniques of theatre, dance and zazen to access and express the internal landscape. This rigorously physical self-discipline is practiced in small groups of 8-12 in "Ritual Labs" that run 6-12 weeks at a time and usually for two or three nights a week. Paratheatre is highly transformative-- careful, it can change your life--and has served as a critical source of inspiration for many of Antero's artistic endeavors, especially his films.
"This new form of ritual theatre is uniquely a product of our eclectic and revolutionary age. It is very, very old and very, very new. To enter Antero Alli's magic circle is to experience that kind of time-warp: you become one with with the first paleolithic shamans dancing to the bear-god. You will know yourself here-now as you have never known yourself before, and you plunge into science-fiction futures in which humanity is expanded mentally and physically beyond our wildest hopes." --- Robert Anton Wilson, author of Cosmic Trigger

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
