Product Description

Synopsis

Draws on many advanced mystical works of the past century to prepare practitioners for the future.

From the Author

FUTURERITUAL updates magick for the 21st Century.
My exploration of magick, science, hypnosis, linguistics and cybernetic theory goes back at least 15 years, though on some level I've been doing this stuff my whole life! As we head toward the 21st Century, media proliferates and we are inundated with bewildering choices and random impulses... I think that magick is a powerful method to cut through our culturally-acquired behavior and conditioning and discover WHO WE REALLY ARE... and act in accordance with that!

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair but Fun 2 Sep 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
A fair look at some basic "magick" techniques. It's really a mix of Tim Leary psychology with post-Crowley meditation and thought techniques. While many of the ideas are valid for breaking the old patterns in your mind, none of it is new or really addresses any major ideas of dealing with technology issues. While it offers little new insight, it is presented in a fun and informal way. Filled with personal experiences and fun stories, it is more accessible than the sources Faber draws from. Good for beginners just starting to explore these ideas, or for old hands who want some new ways to look at the old techniques.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Glass Instead of a Golden Cup! 26 April 2008
By Ascott
Format:Paperback
One the one hand Philip H Farber manages to avoid boring new age idiocy. On the other, however, one was left wondering: "what exactly is the point". Worth a read I would suggest but maybe not at this price. A pricey rehash?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a wide range of readers 22 May 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I opened FutureRitual expecting another rehash of basic magick pulled from all the same books I already own but I was surprised right from the first page. While Mr. Farber certainly covers the basics that a beginner would need to start a practice of magick, he describes it from such a unique, friendly, and entertaining viewpoint, that even someone with years of experience in magick will find something of worth. The goat story alone is worth the price.

There aren't many books on magick that can lead a beginner sensibly from complete novice to the performance of the Star Ruby and the Star Sapphire, but this is one of them.

Farber has only one agenda : magick that works. And magick that makes sense to a modern 21st century student. In this slim volume you get practical advice on how to prepare yourself for ritual, what to expect and why, what to discard and what to keep, and a series of excercises that, used properly, will prepare you for the more advance rituals laid out in the appendixes.

You won't be bogged down by supposedly ancient mumbo-jumbo, or the need to accept a particular magical philosophy or set of god forms. And, best of all, you won't have to pay anyone a large sum of money to "teach you".

You will need to work. In magic there are no free lunches. But every journey starts with the first step, they say, and buying this book could be yours.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Should Be Better Known 12 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What can I possibly say about this little gem of a book? You can sit down and read the whole thing in an afternoon - highly recommended just for the entertainment value - and then you can spend a few years working your way through the exercises. If you work with the exercises - the only way you'll really understand this, even if you've practiced other forms of magick or meditation before - you will continue to astound yourself with your own ability to grow and change and expand your consciousness. Phil Farber's concept of ritual as the art of set and setting makes this material useful in so many situations that, well, it's just incredibly useful!! This book should be part of every magick library, on the shelves along with Crowley, Regardie, and Carroll.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Introduction 26 July 2000
By "panphage" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I loved this book. It is a fine introduction to the field of ritual magick. I've read the pentagram rituals elsewhere - I've learned they are the basis of the entire Golden Dawn body of occultism - but the explanation in here made the most sense. And beyond that, I now have a real sense of how rituals are created and what you can do with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Starting Place 9 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I came into this book at the recommendation of a friend at a Neuro-linguistic Programming seminar. Coming from a rather straightforward psychological background, I was rather dismayed that she had recommended a book on "magick." FutureRitual, however, is a particularly unique look at an ancient tradition, using the language and models of modern psychology and NLP. It's a hell of a lot of fun, and the metaphoric stories offer more unconscious information than most readers will notice right at first... Give it some time to seep in... and do the exercises...

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE...NO EXCUSES! 28 July 2000
By Michael L. Emery - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's contemporary, powerful, and one of the FIRST books I recommend to those wanting the best magick stuff available. If you enjoy the works of Alister Crowley, Max Freedom Long, Stuart Wilde, and Peter J. Carroll, then you will want to reach the next level by buying Philip H. Farber's FUTURERITUAL. I'm only allowed 1,000 words for this review, so there is not enough space to share with you ALL the benefits I've attained from this book. But suffice it to say that one direct benefit is that my intuition abilities have improved to such a degree, that sometimes people are left speechless that I know so much about them. (Works great when picking up chicks!) Not to mention that the narrow concept of "good" and "bad" exeriences will never be the same to you EVER again, once you've completely applied what this book presents. However, this book is not for everyone. Only those people who can step outside of what they are used to, and step into something truly fulfilling, will benefit from this book. And it takes not just the willingness to apply this book, it takes a FOCUS. If you can focus on what is being said in this book, and you can focus on doing what this books asks of you, then you'll know something not too many people have the ability to attain. You see, people "try" new things all the time. But until they LET GO of the "map" they have been following all this time, you'll never full attain the true magic to be had in this book. You'll just make excuses, and point your finger, and do everything else BUT admit you're not letting yourself leave this "map" you've been on, and experiencing what lay beyond it. If you want to find out just what can be possible, BUY THIS BOOK. You'll thank yourself within the first 10 pages. That's My Opinion But You're Welcome To It!
