A star is born, and that star is you! Author and renown workshop leader Peggy Rubin brings her twenty years of experience coaching professionals in Sacred Theatre to deliver dynamic and creative visioning methods for perceiving your life as a grand and ever-changing play. Shakespeare’s immortalized words "all the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players” exemplifies the heart of this book’s empowering message. Like characters in a play, each of us wears an assortment of costumes and embodies multiple persona. ‘Parent’, ‘spouse’, ‘boss’ and ‘customer’ are a few of the many familiar “parts” the average person might play through the course of a typical day. To Be and How to Be: Transforming Your Life through Sacred Theatre demonstrates how to transform these roles, bringing realization and adventure to your divine purpose. There are nine powers in Rubin’s ‘Sacred Theatre’: The Power of Incarnation, The Power of Story, The Power of Place, The Power of Now, The Power of Expression, The Power of Point of View, The Power of Conflict, The Power of Audience and The Power of Celebration are explained in detail with rich personal testimonies, artistic exercises and uplifting poems, allowing the reader to realize and engage life’s deeper purpose. Exercises such as Explore Who You Really Are and meditations from Buddhist greats like Thich Nhat Hanh enable readers to view their lives with greater clarity and to become champions of their own destiny. To Be and How to Be also offers vivid descriptions of theatre’s eight most prominent plots, demonstrating how these plots are so often played out daily life. Understanding scenarios such as the classic story of seduction The Spider and the Fly and trying relationship entanglements such as the infamous Triangle allow the reader to identify and resolve personal real-life patterns. We all enact a sacred plays fit with drama, antagonists, props and plots. This book directs us how to be in the midst of them.
