NEW --> "LAST WORDS" <--- NEW
Towards an Insurrection of the Poetic Imagination
ORIGINAL FALCON PRESS -- January 2023







"Having reveled in Antero Alli’s visionary films and writings for many years,
I’ve come to eagerly anticipate their celebration of the encompassing nature of
the soul. Yet, none have meant more to me than Last Words. I’ve felt my soul
enlightened and calmed by this beautifully composed and sequenced collection
of meditations and revelations, this philosophical chronicle of tears and joys.
What’s more, I’ve felt myself an active participant in its poems, which embody
the daily journey toward insurrection; that is, authenticity, and conscious
spurning of the ‘mass media waterboarding of the collective psyche."

~ William O’Daly, author of The New Gods 
and translator of Pablo Neruda’s Book of Twilight

NEW --> "EXPERIENTIAL ASTROLOGY" <---NEW
From the Map to the Territory
ORIGINAL FALCON PRESS




I viewed myself as sort of an intellectual outlaw, seeking to live by a higher code than
the restraining laws of the land. That is, until I met a real outlaw in the form of Antero Alli.
Antero didn’t only rebel against the intellectual status quo; he took it farther by stepping
outside the trappings of astrology, itself. -
from the Preface by Rick Merlin Levine

"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, THE MOUNTAIN ASTROLOGER

(2022; 228 pages. Illustrated. Second edition. Paperback) Experiential Astrology revisions the horoscope as a map to access and experience the autonomous forces represented by the planetary symbols and the twelve archetypes of the zodiac. By changing the traditional terms of “planets, houses, and signs” to Forces, States, and Styles, the author invites the reader on a journey through the celestial language into the very heart of the human condition.

RECENT ---> "STATE OF EMERGENCE" <--- RECENT
Experiments in Group Ritual Dynamics
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.

(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
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

(2014, second edition; 312 pages. Illustrated. Paperback. Cover art by James Koehnline. $24.95 retail. Paperback). The Eight-Circuit Brain advances the material in Alli's groundbreaking first book, ANGEL TECH, with a compendium of new techniques and practical applications of Dr. Timothy Leary’s 8-Circuit Brain model. After twenty-plus years of research and experimentation, Antero's earlier findings are significantly updated and enriched in this new book. Includes a comprehensive 8-week course of study and practice, the author's "Neurological Autobiography of Outside Shocks and Hedonic Upgrades," Forum interactions with students from his Eight-Circuit course, Alli's encounters with Christopher S. Hyatt and Robert Anton Wilson, and much more. Click book image for excerpt.

"ANGEL TECH"
A Modern Shaman's Guide to Reality Selection

"Angel Tech is a witty, rollicking, wise rendition of

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

A Paratheatrical Workbook by Antero and Friends




"Antero Alli gives precise tools and lucid descriptions for how theatre artists
can use non-dogmatic ritual forms to continually refresh their human soul,
artistic authenticity, and the theater’s vitality as a culturally essential art.

that there are some very specific ways to go about such an excavation
."

"THE VERTICAL ORACLE"
A Neo-Tarot Deck by Sylvi
With a Book of Interpretations by Antero
---> SPRING EQUINOX 2023! LIMITED EDITION! <---




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 more creative and imaginative responses to your questions and everyday concerns. Includes a book of interpretations and astrological references by Antero Alli. Click Vertical Oracle image for excerpts.

A Modern Shaman's Guide to a
PREGNANT UNIVERSE
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
