Tripping the 8 Circuits: Antero Alli on Paratheatre, transformation, and consciousness embodied.

I recently had the opportunity to spend some time talking with Antero Alli.Antero-self

His work has always stood out to me for their focus on body awareness and organic experience.

In a genre filled with fantastical thinking, wishing, and imagining, Antero’s approaches to consciousness exploration remain grounded in the body and individual perception.

Keep your body in mind while you listen to the discussion, and treat it as a jumping off point for your own individual exploration of your mind, body, perception, and life.

Antero and I have a free-flowing conversation starting with the 8-Circuit-Brain model and it’s relation to direct experience, and then we go deeper into Paratheatre, and his ParaTheatrical ReSearch project stretching over the last 3 decades.

You can find more from Antero at Vertical Pool and ParaTheatrical Research.

His most recent offering is this year’s 8 Circuit Brain 8 Week Online Course, starting on March 14, 2014.

    Very nice interview very similar to what we do in yoga, body and mind and internal organs preform as one.

    Antero’s Angel Tech was the book that got me into Undoing and all the holistic systems of conscious growth. Awesome interview Garrett!
