Rituals create a bridge between the outer and the inner world, between the conscious and the unconscious, between the profane and the sacred.

 

Generally speaking, between the understandable shore of the flow of life and the mysterium.

Rituals make use of structural means to make the meaning of an idea visible and comprehensible, or to symbolically point out or refer to their meaning beyond their everyday meaning.

 

Rituals use ready-made courses of action and well-known symbols to simplify the task of carrying out complex, lifeworld-related tasks and to convey orientation, to facilitate communication, dealing with the world and making decisions.

 

The always constant structure acts as a seperator from everyday life. As soon as we enter and prepare for the ritual, we let go of the everyday world and enter an area where other symbols and laws apply.
