Förtrollande riter i det offentliga rummet : hur designas den lyckade individen?

Hornborg, Anne-Christine LU (2016) In Chaos. Dansk-norsk tidsskrift for religionhistoriske studier 65(1). p.23-52
Abstract (Swedish)
Denna artikel diskuterar en ny form av snabbt expanderande praktiker från tidigt 2000-tal och som erbjuds av privata företag eller entreprenörer (lekmannaterapeuter). I fokus står självförverkligande och helande. Jag har med hjälp av verktyg från Ritual Studies valt att analysera dessa praktiker som en form av individ-centrerade riter som designas för att lindra smärta och lågt självförtroende för att bygga nya positiva visioner för individen eller grupper av människor på arbetsplatser

Riterna är inte designade enbart för privat bruk utan vänder sig även till offentliga institutioner som köper in dessa som t.ex. stressbearbetning (t.ex. mindfulness) eller för att öka den anställdes kreativitet och kapacitet (coaching). Frågor som... (More)

Frågor som artikeln väcker är: Hur reflekterar dessa riter samhällsstrukturer? Hur designas de för att upplevas som naturliga sätt av deltagarna att få terapeutiskt helande eller bättre självförtroende? Vilka visioner och mål byggs in och kommuniceras till samhället och individen? (Less)
Abstract
This article discusses a new form of practices which are offered by private companies or entrepreneurs (layman therapists) whose practices focusing on self-development and healing rapidly expanded in the early 2000s in Sweden. I have chosen to analyze these practices from a Ritual Studies perspective as individual-centered rites designed to remedy ill health and low self-esteem and to build new, positive visions for individuals or groups of people at places of work.
The targets for these rites are not only private individuals but also public establishments, who buy these and similar practices as means of stress reduction (e.g., mindfulness) or to increase personal capacity (e.g., coaching). Questions raised include: How do these rites... (More)

The targets for these rites are not only private individuals but also public establishments, who buy these and similar practices as means of stress reduction (e.g., mindfulness) or to increase personal capacity (e.g., coaching). Questions raised include: How do these rites reflect the structure of society? How are practices designed to be experienced as natural means for the participants to achieve therapeutic healing and better confidence? What are the visions and goals that are implicitly built into the practices and communicated to society and the individual? (Less)
