Paul RebillotWe are continuing our conversations with our teacher and friend Paul Rebillot on the topic of the Healing Theatre – the combination of acting and drama, mythology, gestalt therapy, and rituals. For more information about Paul and his work, please visit his website – Direct Impact Creativity.

In this episode, Paul explains the structure and design of Rites of Passage, or the Rituals of Transformation.

The topics covered in this talk are:

  • How do you know it’s time for the rite of passage
    • Putting “blood” (life) back into the ritual
  • Lack of rituals in the modern society
    • There are no rituals for crossing age thresholds – people want to stay young and don’t appreciate their own age
  • Making rites of passages in everyday life
