#4: Dr. Arne Rubinstein — Ritual, Integration and the Death of Normal
Episode description and synopsis
Timely, potent and deeply personable, friend and fellow facilitator, Dr. Arne Rubinstein from the Rites of Passage Institute and I explore the core elements of an initiatory rites of passage process.
Mapping it against our collective ‘container’ of change, also known as COVID-19, we explore the roles of ritual, storytelling, community honoring and reckoning with the death of something within and between us.
Keeping our minds and hearts both in the practical and philosophical, we explore some of the practicalities of ritual-design and how to facilitate your own rituals for transition, as well as the invisible and liminal space of the unknown, apprenticing ourselves to what we are being beckoned to become.
