In WordMagic performance-presentations and workshops, I take audience members deep into the shadowy despair-ities and inner philosophy of the English language to reveal:
1. The self-defeating contra-dictions through which we write our own Life Sentences;
2. The Secret Path Words pointing toward our liberation; and
3. How young and old around the globe can take command of the language by collectively upgrading English into a true Romance language of the heart that inspires the best in us all.
By turning words insight out and backwords to expose the Secret Spells they cast upon our minds, I also perform Alphabet Alchemy to reveal some potent messages with deeper implications as in these highly significant anagrams:
Earth – Heart
Silent – Listen
Love – Evol(ve)
Dogma – Am God
Now consider this: We recognize symbols as the language of the unconscious yet are virtually unconscious to the significance in the most meaningful set of symbols on the planet: The 26 letters of the English alphabet. Yet, what if they actually spell-out the genome of the Western mind?
In eSoterica by Laurel Airica—which I contend must be the definitive exegesis on the Letter S in verse’—I unveil the life philosophy contained in this simple symbol for metamorphoSiS.
And in the Aye that is Oui--another alpha-poetic performance piece—I poiint out that just as we have two eyes, so there are two forms of the Letter I in the alphabet.
Together, they spell-out the path for Self-Real-Eyes-ation—which is the fulfillment of our capital potential.
Through WordMagic performances audience members discover a phonetic Kabbalah of the English language. And because WordMagic is so contagious, they are inspired to embark on their own treasure hunt for the deeper wisdom contained within The Secret Spells of the Unheard Word.
They are also inspired to invent and circulate new words and phrases that can put a more positive spin the whirled. The result is a greater understanding of the power of the Word to impact the quality of our world—and a greater recognition of the transforming pleasures of wordplay.
