Meta-Magick: The Book of Atem
Achieving New States of Consciousness
through NLP, Neuroscience and Ritual
Foreword by Douglas Rushkoff
In Meta-Magick: The Book of Atem (Weiser Books, July 2008) , Philip Farber combines traditional ritual sensibilities with contemporary concepts of neuro-linguistics and memetics to create a unique entity – Atem. In this instance, the essence of an entity encoded in a book and activated by the reader. At the same time, the book is a comprehensive manual of evocation, containing dozens of easy-to-follow rituals and exercises for exploring and creating magical entities of every sort.
Farber teaches the reader to wake up from their habitual trance, to reprogram themselves and stand in the Mystery without unnecessary mystification. This supercharged fusion of tried and true magical and psychological techniques move beyond trauma, healing, and recovery into self-fulfillment and self-transformation. Combining both disciplines, such as intentionality, autohypnosis, visualization, personification, and experiential journeys, Farber creates a powerful system that opens the way to peak experiences, self-knowledge, even cosmic consciousness. Rather than importing standardized healing images, readers learn to create their own emergent metaphors, their own creative strengths and flexible freedom.
“Meta-Magick is an invitation to participate in several levels of practice: the remapping of one’s own mind, the development of memes that can be transmitted to others, the use of media, and the implementation of social change. It is a picture of a world in which we all contribute to the landscape and its bylaws. It is the world in which we live.”
~Douglas Rushkoff from the Foreword
Atem is a living Magus, an icon for the 21st Century. Part transpersonal shaman, part inner guide, part inner healer, part role model, Atem becomes a personal therapist, a guide to self-discovery and self-initiation. Atem, as healing fiction, helps readers to create their own breakthroughs, their own catharsis – emotional clearing that frees energy from internal conflict to flow creatively into new expressions.
While most books describe such work in a purely theoretical sense, Meta-Magick: The Book of Atem not only describes the steps in a very practical way, the book itself is also an example of the process.
