Through years of teaching theater, directing, acting, playwrighting, tearing tickets, being an audience member and living and breathing theater, Olivia has come to understand the profound nature of this ancient, magical and ordinary art form.
Engaging in Ritual Theater enlivens all who participate in a way that feeds the soul and actualize the potentials hidden within individuals and communities.
Myth basically serves four functions. The first is the mystical function,... realizing what a wonder the universe is, and what a wonder you are, and experiencing awe before this mystery....The second is a cosmological dimension, the dimension with which science is concerned – showing you what shape the universe is, but showing it in such a way that the mystery again comes through.... The third function is the sociological one – supporting and validating a certain social order.... But there is a fourth function of myth, and this is the one that I think everyone must try today to relate to – of how to live a human lifetime under any circumstances.” Joseph Campell
"Telling and retelling of stories is the powerful means by which cultures of families and communities are formed and maintained, national and personal identities are preserved, problem-solving skills are taught, and moral values are instilled. Stories can inspire, uplift and transform their listeners."Lewis Mehl- Medrona, MD, Cherokee Medicine Man
Narrative Therapy operates on the principle that all healing is a negotiation of story.
A Personal Mythology is developed from the collection of life stories that we empower, enliven and identify as core to the story of our life and what we are about.
