An Interview with Occult Author and NLP Master, Philip H. Farber -Disinformation

Originally published October 6, 2013 via disinfo.com

A couple of years ago, I realized that thanks to social media, I could start hunting down authors I was interested in like dogs, hounding them with questions I’d never been able to ask before.

One of these poor schmucks was Philip H. Farber, occult author of FutureRitual, Meta Magick: The Book of Atem, and Brain Magick: Exercises in Meta-Magick and Invocation.  He has also written a novel, The Great Purple Hoo-Ha.

Philip is a hypnotist, Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) practitioner, and magician.  Beside his books, he also teaches courses and seminars dealing with ritual magic and NLP.  DVDs of some of these can be found at Hawkridge Productions.

Friending Phil on Facebook was one of my smartest moves.  Not only was he willing to answer all of my questions at length, he was also quick to give me excellent reading recommendations.  And all for free.  What a sucker.

In preparing for this interview, I reread some of his books, re-watched some DVDs, and reviewed some of our old correspondences.  And there, staring coolly at me from behind computer screens and printed word, was the ugly beast of accusation.

This interview is an act of apology to Phil.  If anyone out there has ever gotten me drunk enough to talk about my actual views on magic, you should now realize that all of those brilliant and thought-provoking ideas spewing out of my mouth were most likely lifted from this guy.

Sorry, Phil.
