It is not used in magic. It is basically group role play, role play is very very bad for the craft...it creates trolls and fluff bunnies.

Thanks Linda for your Opinion and your Link its helpful.
I've read that it can be used in Magic and Ritual I get your point but I can see how some part of Fantasy plays a part in a Ritual as well.

According to what I have read, psychodrama is used to "free the mind" during ritual and spellcasting.

It is a sort of mental (and physical) roleplay, as Linda says, used to help you enter an altered state of awareness quicker.

It is also useful in godform assumption, where dressing up as and physically assuming the form of the god you want to invoke, can be helpful.

I use psychodrama in almost every spell and ritual I cast.

While psychodrama definitely is no requirement for a succesful working, I feel it helps a lot.

Sorry, forgot to state my sources.

"Nocturnicon", by Konstantinos.

"Gothic Grimoire", by Konstantinos.

Both books deal with using psychodrama in magick.

Psychodrama is very important in magical works. It is much like guided meditations or pathworking. The Psychodrama is filled with the symbolism of whatever you wish to accomplish. Then, when you are in an altered state of consciousness, which you should be in if you have opened your temple/circle correctly, avting out the psychodrama while in this state sends the request and information directly into the subconscious and from there to the spiritual realms, where real change begins. Acting it out in physical ritual brings those energies down to the physical level, which is where we wish the effect to occur.

LVX,

Psychodrama is a healing therapy originated by Austrian psychiatrist J.L. Moreno. He asserted that people were wounded in relationships and could therefore be healed in relationships. He and others developed this therapeutic tool for enacting life scenes for the purpose of experiencing unexpressed emotions or actions, discovering the genesis of hurts, reconnecting to our authentic selves and then bringing that healing forward to present-day experiences. Although it may feel like magic, it is really just each person's inner desire to move towards wellness and the shared experience of the group members that provides the restorative experience.

I agree that Moreno started working with psychodrama as a therapy probably around 1910. Considering he was born in 1889, and he would have been 21 by 1910, I think that is a safe assumption. He was using it as therapy by 1912. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which was founded in 1888, used psychodrama in their rituals, although it probably was not called that. Freemasonry uses it as well, and those ritual predate the G.D. by at least 200 years. The techniques are, however, a very important part of initiation rituals. Although the use of acting and story telling as clinical therapy was not used until Moreno, the use of it for teaching and initiation is clearly much older.
