Thanks for reading. This NON-PROFIT initiative was launched by a group of close friends, students and people with great appreciation and respect for Gabriel Pareras, Gabi.
Gabi was a unique human being, gifted, humble and generous. He devoted most of his life to the Art of Magic; studdying, teaching and performing. In spite of his reluctance to draw attention to himself he came to be one of most relevant and influential figures in Magic in recent times.
We consider this project to be something both necessary and useful for the magic community and a project Gabi would gladly support himself. It is basically an open access archive and information resource of Gabi’s body of work, routines, concepts, teachings, quotes and also his recommended bibliography.
The GOALS of this project are:
- Honor the person and legacy of Gabriel Pareras and contribute to its international
- Make Gabriel Pareras invaluable contribution to the Art of Magic more accessible for the international Magic community, organizing and referencing the concepts and routines he developed throughout his career, since they are dispersed in large number of records of different nature (books, booklets, informal publications, conferences, interviews and conversations…)
- Bringing Gabi’s universe closer to those interested in him and help to spread his ideas to inspire others as they inspired us.
This project is not meant to replace or reinterpret Gabi’s texts and publications in any way but rather to complement them and serve as guide to navigate in its immensity. Needless to say, we support and encourage more of his original work to be re-edited in a proper format and translated to as many languages as possible.
All the texts on the web have been prepared by the blog managers, and when quotes attributed to Gabriel Pareras are included, they are indicated accordingly.
In the same spirit Gabi cultivated throughout his life no magical effect or routine will be openly revealed in this page for laymen to see. You would not learn how to perform any specific routines in the blog, but rather you will learn where those explanations are to be found and what are some of the principles and concepts behind them. Whenever is necessary to make a reference to the method for a better organization of the information or for clarifying a concept it will be done in a subtle and veiled way. For the same reason laymen are welcome to this page, as Gabi defended, Magic can only benefit from the spectators having a better understanding of the complexities and beauty of this discipline.
This project is a homage but is also a work in progress, a never-ending task, a nonprofit enterprise and a collaborative activity that will grow progressively with time and with the help of the magic community.
If you think you can collaborate and you are up to it, either proposing, writing, expanding, correcting or even translating an entry, drop a message. If you want to support this project indirectly follow our accounts in social media and let other people know.
Thank you very much!!
