separation phase

separation phase,

n in holistic nursing, the first segment of a ceremony or rite, in which a person makes a symbolic gesture of removing himself or herself from the busy and demanding activities of life. A person may adjourn to a sacred area for a period of time—which may be any place, including a room in one's house—but it can become more personal by adding an object of special importance such as a religious symbol or a burning candle. A feeling of calmness can be brought about by focusing on that particular object.
