Reflecting on Peak-, Abyss- and Transition Experiences

Mozart’s opera ‘The Magic Flute’ depicts trials as incidents within a formal initiation process. Modern life and consciousness has stepped beyond formal settings, but trial-like incidents appear as part of daily life. In difficult life circumstances we may feel as if we are losing the ground from under our feet, being swept away by a wave, or feeling consumed by a fiery experience. We aim to distinguish the distinctive nature of contemporary “trials” that confront us as individuals especially within social life and compare these with the old pictures of “fire, water or air trials.” We also explore what the expression “humanity is crossing the threshold” actually means in this context. Phenomenology related to the elements fire, water and air will give points of reference to explore the theme on lofty spiritual levels and down to the unvarnished reality of daily life.
