Über diesen Titel:
Soul Play is an entertaining way to turn personal daily dramas into special performances. The author challenges readers to let go of the myth that change comes only through suffering. She offers a way to change that is fun and effective.
Contemporary life isn't easy, and often it's far from humorous. From our everyday perspective, life seems complex and chaotic. Captivating drama is based on contrast or conflict. Suspense is built when that which pulls us forward clashes with that which holds us back. Either we become mired in the controversy and continue to suffer the pain of separation (tragedy) or we eventually resolve the conflict and experience the excitement of a new level of harmony (comedy).
Shakespeare reminded us that we're all players on the world stage. While we want to play our part well, most of us stumble over our lines or fake our way through the scenes. We don't know how to turn our daily dramas into divine comedies. When we don't know how to orchestrate the tumult inside, life can be hell.
Hell isn't fun. To be stuck in private anguish is tragic drama. Soul Play pulls the reader out of hell, guides them through purgatory, and leads them to Paradise. It opens doors into different dimensions of consciousness and provides ways to take charge of one's inner life.
In The Divine Comedy, Dante visited all realms of experience and witnessed every nuance of human emotion from the most vile to the most sublime. It was the inner quality of a person that determined whether he or she spent time in the abyss or in the heavens. Developing inner qualities is essential to living a joyful life. Soul Play is about developing and fine-tuning one's character all one's inner characters.
Vom Verlag: Vivian King's book has been hailed as special by authors, directors, actors and psychology professors for its simple and clear presentation of an enjoyable way of personal growth by seeing life as a play.
One reader commented as follows:
A few years ago, as feature reporter for a CBS affiliate, I had the pleasure of doing a television story about Dr. Vivian King's Inner Theatre. We filmed a portion of one of her workshops and I became more familiar with her unique concepts for assisting what she terms, our "unaccomplished inner actors," to evolve into "accomplished" ones. Dr. King demonstrated how Inner Theatre's goal is to assist the participant to achieve new levels of "self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-mastery."
When I heard that Vivian King had authored a newly-published book, Soul Play, I had to read it. In doing so, I found that her writing provides a remarkable encounter between the author and reader.
In Soul Play you will be introduced to your playwright, supporting cast, director, and many others -- all, incidentally, inside you, who -- with guidance -- are eager to turn the production of your life into a masterpiece. First, however, for that to happen, the Director -- You -- have to take your proper place in the Director's Chair. Then, as Vivian King so cogently tells us, "the more skillfully we play our particular parts, the more we'll bring out the star qualities in others and make the world a better place to be -- or a better Play to see."
Now, as Director of Broadcast Media for Tapestry: The Institute for Philosophy, Religion, and the Life Sciences, it is my job -- and great joy -- to find authors and ideas for the TV discussion shows we're creating. Vivian King is one of those authors who superbly articulates a vision of what we humans are capable of becoming -- then lays out an elegant structure for manifesting that vision.
Read Soul Play and do the exercises. Then observe as time passes, what exquisite and mysterious changes are taking place in your inner and outer world!
Meister Eckhart wrote, "When the soul wishes to experience something, she simply throws out an image and enters into it." I hope you will enter into the experience of Soul Play and reap the real rewards of life, the ones that come from being the writer, actor, producer and director of your own award winning performance!
Consider yourself fortunate if you add this book to your library of favorites to read again and again. I know I will. (James Napier, Director of Broadcast Media, Tapestry: The Institute for Philosophy, Religion, and the Life Sciences).
