TABLE OF CONTENTS (with VIDEO)..... AUTHOR INTRODUCTION


"In Experiential Astrology, Alli offers a view freed from
the confining, overly literal tone that haunts some sectors of
astrological lore. Describing astrology as a language through
which we can experience the planets as living forces, he reframes
astrological topics with his unique approach."

Mary Plumb, Book Review Editor

RECENT ---> "STATE OF EMERGENCE" <---RECENT
Experiments in Group Ritual Dynamics
Published by THE ORIGINAL FALCON PRESS





You have put much of what I am about and too lazy to put on paper.
Wonderous feeling of spirituality. And guided by deep consciousness.
A compendium of your wisdom and experiences during your long
commitment to the performing arts. Aware of the dangers of inflation
and self-centeredness that are a part of the path to the invisible. I am
glad to have "The Theater And Its Double", "Towards a Poor Theater"
and "State of Emergence" in my library.
- John O’Keefe, playwright, San Francisco.


TABLE OF CONTENTS (with VIDEO)

(2020; 180 pages. Photographs & diagrams. Paperback. Preface by Jogen Salzberg. $19.95 retail) State of Emergence  is a compendium of methods drawn from physical theatre, dance, vocalization and ritual practices to gain access to the internal landscape of impulses, emotions and sensations in the body. This somatic work offers a dynamic visceral interpretation of Carl Jung's "active imagination" for making the Unconscious, conscious in movement, vocalization and action. The dogma-free bias of this ritual technology can be integrated into any ritual, dance, movement or theatre practice in need of greater depth of inner work. Ritual methods include The Five Intentions, No-Form, Conscious Projection, Sourcing, Space Forming, Presence Actions, Boundarywork, Non-directional Jogging, and much more. This book also includes stories from those who have done this work, the author’s personal ritual journals, an interview with singer Sylvi Alli on “The Embodied Voice”, the Potential Dangers of ritual work and much more....

"THE EIGHT-CIRCUIT BRAIN"
Navigational Strategies for the Energetic Body
Published by THE ORIGINAL FALCON PRESS




"The Eight-Circuit Brain is ultimately a book one reads for
the express purpose of self-realization and self-development.
It is not necessarily read for light enjoyment. If willing to put
in the time and effort, it seems likely that one may find the
exercises within able to produce some very tangible results
."
-- David Arnson for EROWID

"TOWARDS AN ARCHEOLOGY OF THE SOUL"

"Antero Alli gives precise tools and lucid descriptions for how theatre artists
can use non-dogmatic ritual forms to continually refresh their human soul,

Suddenly we see that uncovering the "soul" is the purpose of our art, and
that there are some very specific ways to go about such an excavation

"THE VERTICAL ORACLE"
A NeoTarot by Sylvi
The Book of Interpretations by Antero
---> NO LONGER AVAILABLE <---


 


In my experience, reading these cards tend to be a brutally honest experience.
They therefore work best for me when I’m trying to figure out a personal issue
where I tend to hide the truth from myself. On the other hand, readings can
also result in surprisingly positive outcomes and encouragement. This is a
nice balance to the brutality, and also provides a sense of truth to all readings,
whether positive or negative – I know the cards will not “lie” to me.
- Cathi Bitzer, AECLECTIC TAROT

(1996; Vertical Pool Publications. 52 full-color cards with a book of interpretations). THE VERTICAL ORACLE is a Neo-Tarot deck created by Sylvi PIckering-Alli that infuses 52 contemporary images with archetypal meaning without the traditional suits, numbers or trump cards; all cards being created equal. THE VERTICAL ORACLE offers NO pat answers or false assurances. It can, however, restore your sense of humor and incite imaginative responses to your questions and everyday issues. Includes a book of interpretations and astrological references by astrologer, Antero Alli. .

A Modern Shaman's Guide to a
PREGNANT UNIVERSE
Published by Original Falcon Press


 



(1988; The Original Falcon Press; 176 pages. Profusely illustrated. Paperback). Written with the late Christopher S. Hyatt, PhD, The Pregnant Universe is a Neural Cocktail party of a brain getting drunk on itself. It is the essence of slimy copulation between known and unknown forces. As the planet braces for a series of new contractions, bizarre and interesting forces are being born — brains with new centers, new chemicals, new visions — going far beyond the suited dinosaurs prattling their slogans. Filled with Provocative Images and Mind-Pounding Ideas. Thoroughly iconoclastic and genuinely funny! One of Hyatt's favorites! Click book image for excerpt
