"From Sacred Theatre to sacralizing your life's story, Peggy Rubin takes you through an engaging and wonderful process that will expand your perspective in a myriad of ways and enrich your journey forever. We love this book." -Donna Eden and David Feinstein, authors of Energy Medicine "Each of the arts offers models for the composing of lives, but, as Peggy Rubin demonstrates, theater perhaps most of all. This effervescent description of sacred theater should inspire us all as composers of our lives and caring actors in the world." -Mary Catherine Bateson, author of Composing a Further Life: The Age of Active Wisdom Life can be experienced as a great play - sometimes a comedy, sometimes a tragedy, sometimes an epic, sometimes a satire, but always a play. We can think of ourselves as the main character in our own story. Author Peggy Rubin brilliantly uses traditional theatre as a metaphor for living life more authentically and joyfully. To understand our lives as a sacred art form, Rubin traces the roots of theatre to ancient rituals that celebrated the eternal nature of the soul. She provides the tools to tap into the nine powers of sacred theatre so that our lives can resonate with our highest purpose, including 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. "Playing the play of life is a daring adventure," says Rubin. "It takes courage, focus, excitement, and intention to stop just letting our stories happen and instead enact them with verve and delight." Here she invites readers to take the stage of life and play their story for all it is worth.

Reviews

"I have always been able to employ in real life what I've learned in my theatrical training. Peggy Rubin has now made that process available to anybody who reads this book. It's very readable and I highly recommend it." --Ellen Burstyn, Actress "Peggy Rubin is a master of theater and the art of becoming. Her book-- a masterpiece in every way-- will hold you spellbound as you discover the drama of your soul and the purpose of your life. The unique expression of your essence--the Divine theophany that you are--emerges almost magically as you read this clear, penetrating, and insightful book and work with the exceptional exercises. Brava, Peggy" --Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of "Your Soul's Compass" and "A Woman's Journey to God" "If you are needing to clarify and manifest your life's purpose "To Be and How to Be" is a great guide. This profound book, filled with wisdom and compassionate understanding, offers you empowerment and the inspiration to live your true purpose in this incarnation. Learn through inquiry and practical exercies to be a fully awake sacred actor in the sacred theatre called life" --Judith Cornell, Ph.D. [Rajita Sivananda], award-winning author of "Mandala: Luminous Symbols for Healing, Amma Healing the Heart of the World," and "Drawing the Light from Within" "There are times when something you read has the power to stop your life in its unconscious rush forward: this book does that, and then again and again, it coaxes something more genuine to take shape. To take seriously these often deceptively gentle instructions, to give them the real chance to do their great work, just may be to find oneself suddenly, and quite radiantly, at home in the moment. Read, in other words, only if prepared to loosen yourself from the tight grip of your old stories and know your birth-right: the vast stage is always arriving right under your feet." --Sensei Bonnie Myotai Treace, Gristmill Hermitage, founder of Hermitage Heart & Bodies of Water Zen "Peggy Rubin has written a wonderful book full of theater history and mystery. Her love of theater and wisdom about life brings the reader right onto the stage and into the essence of their own story and how they fit into the great drama of life. Bravo!" --Michael Meade, author of "The World Behind the World" and "The Water of Life" I have always been able to employ in real life what I've learned in my theatrical training.
