The connection between ritual and the interior is interrogated through a theoretical framework integrating Van Gennep’s Rites of Passage Theory and Turner’s Theory of Liminality. A multi-faceted methodological framework is developed from the interrogation of the disciplinary edges of multiple methodologies, addressing the experiential, cultural and subjective dimensions of ritual. This new way of exploring the interior demonstrates how knowledge can be acquired from the body’s immersion in unfolding ritual situations, revealing elements of ritual and interior in relation to one another and the generation of new theories on the interior.
