Role playing has been a pretty common area of discussion for Rolling for Change in recent times. The fact is role playing is one of the most open ended mechanics in gaming, allowing for exploration of self, group dynamics and processing of conflict. It really is one of the most malleable tools we have in terms of formalized play. Our guest in this episode, Rabbi Menachem Cohen discusses how we can further extend that malleability to spiritual development. You can find out more about his work at http://whatmakesyoucomealive.net/ But before you go there, go ahead and listen to our discussion. Menachem offers some really amazing insights with regard to personal growth and spiritual progress through gaming.
