Art of a Shaman
In Art of a Shaman, originally a lecture presented at N.Y.U., Frank Moore explores performance and art in general terms of them being a magical way to effect change in the world. He looks at performance as an art of melting action, ritualistic shamanistic doings/playings. By using his career and life as a "baseline", Moore explains the dynamic playing within the context of reality shaping. He brings in concepts from modern physics, mythology and psychology.

Cherotic Magic Revised
A major attempt to introduce a powerful system of magic into our modern western everyday life, thereby explosively expanding such concepts as sex, human relationships. The clear, down-to-earth text is amplified by the non-linear trance illustrations by LaBash.
published 2003

"It just took us a decade to get this expanded version out! It is a practical source book for living magic. I have greatly deepened it to include where the work has gone since we first published it. and, if that wasn't enough, we have packed it with even more LaBash drawings! It even has a binding and a full-color insert! But the price hasn't changed! Ok, I'll stop hyping it...but it's very useful!"

Vision Theater
by James D. Audlin & Frank Moore

No Tongue Will Live to Speak/No Ears Will Yearn to Hear is a play written by James D. Audlin (Chief Distant Eagle) and directed in 1994 by Frank Moore in Berkeley, California. Vision Theater is a book made up of the daily e-mail conversations between Frank and Jim...both as director and playwright and as two shamans...over the year-plus that it took Frank to produce/direct the play. It is an in-depth examination of the backstage process of doing a shamanistic drama (or any drama for that matter)...the tricks, the pitfalls, the dynamics...and how everyday life and the magically framed theater effect each other.
copyrighted 1994

"The book (Vision Theater) is comprised of the e-mail conversations between Frank and James (aka Chief Distant Eagle) regarding a play James wrote and Frank directed called 'No Tongue Will Live to Speak/No Ears Will Yearn to Hear'. The play itself is about a tribe that is outside the 'civilized world'. One member leaves and returns with an anthropologist who only wants to document the tribe's activities and songs for a quick buck. The dilemma is that the tribe's material could be misused, but when the tribe disappears so will their history. The philosophy of life/death, nudity, sexuality, etc. is so different from what Western society is used to that Frank has a hard time casting the play, but eventually everything comes together and the results sound pretty amazing. Sure wish I'd been fortunate enough to witness this event back in '94; Mr. Peabody are you listening?" Bleeding Velvet Octopus #7, 1997
