The Shaman's Cave Navigation Isn't this warm and cozy, this cave of ours. In here we can talk about things that are usually hidden ... magic, ritual, sex, evolution ... and can see things that are taboo ... nude bodies playing, live performance art.

In here we can play with one another in freedom ...

Hell, I don't know what this cave will become because we will keep adding writings, photos, art, and who knows what else ... expanding the cave always deeper into the dark unknown underground possibilities. Just enter one of the doors below and start exploring!

Or talk to ME (fmoore@eroplay.com). I am always here!

Oh, BTW ... in case you have been wondering ...

SHAMANISM is the direct experience of reality.

CHERO is the physical life energy. I created the word "chero" by combining "chi" and "eros".

MAGIC is the science/art of non-linear change. In cherotic magic, it is the practical focus of the person to reshape reality into more humane forms by using the magical dynamics of relationships.

REVOLUTIONARIES are the mutations of evolution ... most "fail" ... but even in failure, change and new possibilities are created.

ART is that process of creating change and new possibilities.

And with that ... Enjoy exploring!

The Dream Weaver:
Frank Moore and the Art of Performance

By Mark Mackintosh
Underdog-Online

Performance, like any avant-garde art, is the way society dreams. It is the way society expands its freedom, explores the forbidden in safety, loosens up. Society needs its dream art, just as an individual needs to dream not to go insane. Our moral majority society, bent on going backwards into the violent blank rigidity of a censored mind, needs taboo-breaking dreams to get back to freedom.
Performance is perfectly suited
for this dream role.
