Dying to Learn:
First Book of the Initiate
By Oberto "Falco" Airaudi With a Foreword by The Oracle Institute
Will Humans choose Utopia or Dystopia?
Dying to Learn is the first installment of a futuristic trilogy in which humans are living in a dystopian world. Capitalism has failed, a great cataclysm has occurred, and an “End Times” of our own making has left our planet in chaos. In this wasteland, an Avatar named OroCritshna comes to Earth to teach and to guide the resurrection of the human race. He alone possesses knowledge of our sordid history and divine potential. Like the prophets before him, OroCritshna attempts to help humanity spiritually ascend. Yet, because our planet is shrouded in superstition, ignorance, and darkness, only a few souls are ready to become Initiates. Will you understand his messages of Truth, Love and Light?
Are you ready to become an Initiate?
The Initiate series includes three futuristic novellas written by Oberto “Falco” Airaudi, founder and spiritual guide of The Federation of Damanhur in Italy. Originally, Falco wrote the Initiate trilogy for students at the Damanhur Mystery School and to honor Damanhur’s Temples to Humanity, which are often called the “Eighth Wonder of the World.” Now, Falco’s texts have been translated into English and are being offered to the public at large.
The next two books in the trilogy are entitled Reborn to Live: Second Book of the Initiate and Seven Scarlet Doors: Third Book of the Initiate. The series also includes a free e-book entitled Road to the Central Fires: Prequel to Seven Scarlet Doors, which can be downloaded at The Oracle Institute website.

Acclaim for Dying to Learn
“The resonance I feel with Damanhur and the mission of The Oracle Institute fills me with passionate promise for the future of the human race. Coherence of this magnitude is a clear indication of a deep pattern within the universe, and it is the same force which guides my work at the Foundation for Conscious Evolution, The Shift Network, and with colleagues throughout the world.”
~Barbara Marx Hubbard, co-founder of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution; global ambassador for The Shift Network; member of the Evolutionary Leaders Group, World Future Society, and Assoc. for Global New Thought; and author of The Hunger of Eve, Emergence: The Shift from Ego to Essence, and Birth 2012 and Beyond
“The Damanhur community is a truly paradigm-expanding experiment in conscious living. Its design, evolution, and artistry are a testament to the unique genius of Falco – an evolutionary pioneer.”
~Stephen Dinan, M.A., founder and CEO of The Shift Network; member of the Evolutionary Leaders Group; and author of Radical Shift: Spiritual Writings from the Voices of Tomorrow and Sacred America: Fulfilling Our Country's Promise with Marianne Williamson
“Here is the revelation of the soul of a mystery school, that once and future experience of exploring the ways in which the self is put into service for the SELF … and the world mind grows as a consequence.”
~Jean Houston, Ph.D., founder of The Foundation for Mind Research, Renaissance of Spirit Mystery School, and the Jean Houston Foundation for social artistry; global advisor on human development to the United Nations and UNICEF; and author of A Passion for the Possible, A Mythic Life, and The Wizard of Us
“These books are a poetic tribute to the Absolute bearing witness to its own creation through the eyes of a deeply inspired mystic.”
~ Andrew Cohen, spiritual teacher and founder of EnlightenNext; and author of My Master is My Self, Embracing Heaven & Earth, and Evolutionary Enlightenment with Deepak Chopra
“History hinges on the lives and actions of great individuals. Building the Temples of Humankind was a mission from a higher spiritual world. Falco has inspired a community to bring heaven to earth.”
~Alex Grey and Allyson Grey, M.F.A,, founders of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (“CoSM”), a sanctuary for encouraging the creative spirit; publishers of Damanhur: Temples of Humankind; and Alex is Chair of the Sacred Art Department at Wisdom University and author of Sacred Mirrors, The Mission of Art, and Net of Being
“Falco is an explorer at the frontiers of the human experience. He sees what others only intuit, and he thereby provides insight into the potential for the human future in that domain of our identity where there are at present deep yearnings but no maps
~Jim Garrison, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Ubiquity University; founder of Wisdom University and The State of the World Forum; and author of America As Empire, Civilization and The Transformation of Power, and Climate Change and the Primordial Mind
“This look into the personal perspectives of Falco – a living Avatar – is a poetic walk through the internal work and wisdom of one who has brought us astonishing beauty and creativity. You’ll find practical wisdom interwoven with cosmic musings that result in a provocative and enlightening window into the mind of a very special man.”
~John L. Petersen, futurist and founder of The Arlington Institute; author of A Vision for 2012: Planning for Extraordinary Change and Out of the Blue: How to Anticipate Big Future Surprises; and publisher of the e-newsletter FUTUREdition
“The Three Books of the Initiate are uniquely different than any other spiritual books on the market today – and I do mean unique. They read as if Oberto were interpreting my third near-death experience, seeing what I saw, feeling what I felt, lending heft to that sense of Presence when you truly become one with The One. The texts stretch thought about who we are, where we came from, and why we’re here. The books are stunningly powerful.”
~P.M.H. Atwater, L.H.D., researcher of near-death and evolutionary states; and author of The Real Truth about Death, Children of the Fifth World, Beyond the Indigo Children, Future Memory, and Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of the Story
“What appeals to me about Falco's exposition is that the perspective on learning and growing into the light is one of personal responsibility, with apparently no absolutes. Like Edgar Cayce's practical philosophy, it assumes each person is capable of achieving self-realization. Thanks for making this book available in English.”
~Henry Reed, Ph.D., Director of the Edgar Cayce Institute for Intuitive Studies; professor at Atlantic University; founder of Creative Spirit Studios; and author of Dream Medicine, Dream Solutions, Awakening Your Psychic Powers, and Sharing Your Intuitive Heart
“The Three Books of the Initiate are a love poem to humanity, written by a man drunk with the Divine. They are a wakeup call, inviting each of us to let go of what is no longer serving us and to learn how to behave. They are an invitation to embrace the Source that is manifesting through each of us and everything, and that is patiently waiting for us to remember who we truly are.”
~Philip Hellmich, Director of Peace at The Shift Network; advisor to the Global Peace Initiative of Women; co-author of The Love:Of the Fifth Spiritual Paradigm (Oracle Institute Press); and author of God and Conflict with Lama Surya Das
Reading Falco’s inspiring books feels like dancing with the Divine. The ego wants to find the logic, but through story and metaphor, the jewels of wisdom land deeply within the soul, resulting in profoundly effortless understanding and illumination.”
~Olivia Parr-Rud, M.S., thought-leader and liaison between the spiritual and corporate worlds; and best-selling author of Data Mining Cookbook and Business Intelligence Success Factors: Tools for Aligning Your Business in the Global Economy
“The Initiate series reads like an epic poem. The nature of the Cosmos unfolds throughout these passages, along with the truth of the divine relationship between God and the creatures of Earth. For those who are ready to hear, many mysteries are revealed through the Master’s midnight conversations, his secret thoughts, and his guiding hand offered to the Initiates.”
~High Malku Priest Robert Martin, Jr., Ph.D.,Patriarch of the Ancient and Sovereign Order of Melchizedek; and author of The Tree of Life Bears Twelve Manner of Fruit: An Alchemical Story
