Sacred Theatre is based on the idea that your life is a great play – rich dialogue, cast of thousands, many scenes and locations, terrific drama, soul-stirring action. You are invited to step onto the sacred stage of your life for more energy, more expressiveness, more playfulness, more creativity, and a clearer understanding of the beauty of your life.
The Sacred Theatre community in New Jersey will gather for two residential workshops at Ocean Grove, October 4-8, and 11-14. The focus will be on Women’s Rites and the Powers of Sacred Theatre. Patti Kaufman at firstname.lastname@example.org is the wise one who can tell you all about it.

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women sacred players.” –Shakespeare, slightly adapted Sacred Theatre provides a way of looking at your life as a holy play, a wondrous work of performance art in progress, dedicated to forces beyond our capacity to imagine. These forces may be called gods; or ideals like […]
One thing Shakespeare has in common with comic book characters: at big moments of realization, a light bulb seems to go on over the person’s head. On the stage this takes place more subtly, light bulbs being singularly lacking in Shakespeare’s world. Nevertheless the moment is made immaculately clear through the actor’s capacity to demonstrate […]
