1. Explore
2. Intensify the exploration
3. Increasing energy and clarity
4. Fritz’s manifesto
5. Fritz at Esalen and Cowichan
Fritz begins exactly where you are right now as you read this sentence. This moment is all you ever have. His goal is to make you fully aware of the NOW---be it beautiful or ugly, boring or ecstatic, petty or magnificent. His techniques, theory, pomposity and blustering are all designed to shake you into the NOW. The NOW of this moment for me as I type this, and the NOW for you as you read it. Being in the NOW allows a more accurate connection with Reality and increases your opportunities to create a satisfying life.
I fear our ancestors would see us smothered under layers and layers of lifeless words and habits---far removed from nature, and living a short distance from our bodies.
As T. S. Eliot and Jamake Highwater wrote:
Those who have crossed, with direct eyes
to death’s other Kingdom,
remember us, if at all,
not as lost violent souls,
but only as the hollow men,
the stuffed men.
“Primal peoples live among animals and vegetation constantly in close contact with the sources of nourishment and death, understanding their environment and expressing their ideas and feelings in terms of the natural world. In contrast, people in the West have created an idealization of their relationship with nature which has neither life nor spirit.”
Or, as my friend Janis Hoffman put it in The Alice Trilogy: “We keep raw Reality far, far away by living a world of smelly boxes, and words-data-logic.”

Meet the Author

My friend Janis Hoffman, who wishes to remain anonymous, is writing about the wild adventures of a highly intelligent, self-centered brat, Alice, who discovers the ancient Egyptian World of Shadow and runs circles around people at UC Berkeley.

Our goal is to expand what you can think, feel and create, to invite you to the dance. My books include: two in the area of self-help psychology; papers, such as how to create useful idiots; and, a play and book about what happens when a group of university professors invite a shaman from the Sonoran Desert to share his world.

A serious warning! You need a firm grip on reality and a reasonably stable life, otherwise best to pass on by.

And not for the easily offended! Adult language is used when appropriate to the narrative, as in ALICE, and techniques for enhancing sexuality are given in THE MAGIC THEATER II. Taboos are broken. Political correctness ignored. Old habits and ways of thinking challenged.
