“FUTURERITUAL describes very precisely an essential set of Thelemic magickal considerations and exercises with full instructions and texts. These are invested with the authority of the past, especially that collated and developed by Aleister Crowley and associates. They are also permeated with the considerations and prerequisites of the present, illuminated with wit, linguistic precision, and interdisciplinary parables by the astute and pared commentaries of Philip H. Farber. Most crucial, and most particularly, though: FUTURERITUAL is a point of intersection between past, present and future. It suggests, quite rightly, that the individual has an innate right to explore and to know; to expect the unexpected in all ways, to divine the divine inside and outside their physical vehicle; to accumulate an effective and rewarding system of “magick” by means of which to maximize both their know, and potential comprehension of this state of being we call being alive.” – Genesis P-Orridge
“Philip H. Farber in his new book has once again shown where Magick meets the brain.” – Richard Bandler, co-founder of NLP
He was an entertainment journalist for more than a decade and has made many media appearances, including one in the documentary film Programming the Nation, about the impact of subliminal advertising. Mr. Farber has been booked to present lectures, workshops and seminars at conferences throughout the United States and UK (including the National Guild of Hypnotists conference, the International Conference on Shamanism, the Equinox Festival, the Starwood Festival, and many more). His own seminars have filled venues in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, London, Amsterdam, and many other locations.
“FUTURERITUAL is the first magick manual entirely contemporary with modern science and the only one that will really prepare the student for life in the 21st Century.” – Robert Anton Wilson, author Cosmic Trigger and Illuminatus
“Farber begins by asking, ‘How much do you want your own story to rock?’ then with an exuberant ‘Woohoo’ proceeds to hand us sane and practical tools and exercises to become a true superstar in the only world that really matters … our own brain. Powerfully provocative and original, the next step in human consciousness may very well be known as ‘The Way of Woohoo’.” – Lon Milo DuQuette, Author of Low Magick: It’s All in Your Head – You Just Have No Idea How Big Your Head Is.
