Leben in der Kraft der Rituale: Religion und Spiritualität by Regina von Brück,Michael von Brück

By Regina von Brück,Michael von Brück

Regina und Michael von Brück zeigen in ihrem neuen Buch, wie Rituale das Leben strukturieren und in einen größeren Sinnzusammenhang stellen. Während der letzten dreißig Jahre haben die Autoren immer wieder den Gnanananda Ashram in Indien besucht, an den dortigen Ritualen teilgenommen und Gespräche mit dem spirituellen Lehrer, Swami Nityananda Giri, geführt.
Das Buch beschreibt, wie Mythen und Rituale den indischen Alltag prägen und zu spirituellen Erfahrungen anleiten. Darüber hinaus wird deutlich, wie Rituale in neuer Weise Bedeutung für unsere Lebenspraxis gewinnen können: Sie ermöglichen Kreativität, schaffen Abstand von starren Alltagszwängen und ermutigen zu individueller Freiheit in sozialen Bindungen. In unübersichtlichen modernen Lebenswelten können Rituale Halt geben und neue Perspektiven für eine bewusste Lebensgestaltung eröffnen.
