Course dynamic: 35% theory, 65% praxis.
All theories tested in real-time experiments.

"Antero Alli is that special brand of human -- a frontier scout
for the species -- out there on the rim where past and
future intersect."
- Timothy Leary, PhD

"Some who like to talk of things 'mystical' but have
no firsthand knowledge, may find Antero's realism
a bit disconcerting."
- Robert Anton Wilson, PhD

1) THE EIGHT-CIRCUIT BRAIN, the book, is required for this course and
can be ordered direct from the publisher at: The Original Falcon Press
Or Amazon. Though this book is also available on Kindle, the hard copy
is recommended since page numbers are referenced in this course
and e-books do not feature page numbers.

2) This course is 35% theory (reading, thinking, writing) and 65% praxis
(tasks, rituals, meditations) demanding approx 6 hours each week
on your
own plus whatever amount of time you choose to spend interacting with
Antero (via private e-mails) and others on the weekly online forums.

The course structure is already contained in my book THE EIGHT-CIRCUIT BRAIN (required for this course). The paperback version is recommended since Kindle does not feature page numbers. Week One involves mostly reading assignments introducing the basic concepts of circuit functions and definitions. Throughout Weeks 2, 3, 4, & 5 specific experiential work tasks (meditations, rituals, actions) are introduced that everyone tends to at their own pace. After writing down the results of your work, you can share your experiences with others in the multi-platform online forums and/or privately with myself via email. Week 6 Chapel Perilous explores the psychology of Shadow work. There are no set meeting times; you do whatever your daily schedule and self-motivation allows. Every Friday, the next week's assignments are presented while all previous weekly assignments and forum posts remain open to review and/or to post on. NOTE: This course does not use Skype, phone, or zoom. - Antero

~ Instructor Introduction ~

This 6-week online course results from a comprehensive study and practice of dynamic methods for accessing the states of consciousness symbolized by the Eight-Circuit Brain model. This online course has been tested and refined over the past thirteen years with over three hundred participants. This is no "New Age" woo-woo workshop of silly affirmations and crystal fantasies but an experiential approach to real self-work with actual results. Your assumptions and self-knowledge will be tested against direct experience and the option of interacting with other participants and myself. All eight circuits are covered, their specific internal vertical supports, along with initiations into and out of Chapel Perilous.

Once understood and redefined in your own terms, the 8-circuit model can act as an effective diagnostic for precision tracking and interpretation of a spectrum of consciousness within yourself, in others, the world and beyond. The 8-circuit grid can be especially useful for anyone seeking context and integration of hyper-consciousness triggered by psychoactive drug use, outside shocks, and real-life traumas. If you are motivated to accept more responsibility for your life, for your own choices, autonomy, and integrity, this course may be for you.

If you have any questions about this course or myself, please don't hesitate to contact me.
