and the World
NLP in Text, Online and Off
January 18 - February 29, 2016
Once upon a time, our ancestors had to hunt for words in libraries and bookstores. Today, vast torrents of words pour into our homes via modems and networks. The new familiarity with flowing, scrolling text gives many of us a new ease with words - and yet we rarely lift the lid on the word machine to learn what makes them effective, how we respond to language patterns, and what distinguishes ordinary efforts from fantastic and inspiring prose.
Words and the World will explore the structure of textual interaction to gain insight into how to get the most from our own words. In the process, we'll highlight how our minds use words to create beliefs, belief systems and the models that we sometimes mistake for "reality."
In the meatspace, offline that is, NLP is taught in seminar settings that emphasize face to face interaction. That's an awesome way to gain skills - to use offline. Increasingly, though, our business, pleasure, education, and enlightenment can be found in e-mail, on the web, on networking sites, blogs, IMs and online forums.
Come prepared to participate in the
online equivalent of an
NLP seminar. We will put our skills to practice with found text and
other. Exercises will address linguistic use in chat, web pages, forum
academic writing, fiction and much more. Enroll now to develop powerful
skills, flexible enough to keep pace with the online info-flow. Newbies
as experienced cybernauts, writers, and NLPers will have some
to hone their interactive skills.

“Philip H. Farber has once again shown where magick meets the brain.” – Richard Bandler, co-founder of NLP
“[This 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
"Phil Farber has a genius for transformative edu-tainment. His writing captures the warmth and liveliness of his workshops because multisensory experiential processes are part of every page." --Iona Miller, co-author of The Modern Alchemist
"Meta-Magick is a brilliant and patently original book of magical instruction that future generations will revere as an 'ancient classic.'" -- Lon Milo DuQuette, author of My Life with the Spirits and Enochian Vision Magick
"The intent of Farber's ongoing literary sigil is to move his readers beyond the practice of individual magicks into the shared space of collective, consensual hallucination.... Farber quickly branches out in new directions - casting a visionary world picture as if it were a guide book, a description and instruction manual to a realm that is quite literally created in the process of its depiction and subsequent imagination." - Douglas Rushkoff, author of Coercion and Media Virus
