Pre-planned disaster

The phoenix is reborn from its own ashes. It must be consumed in fire and thereby purified before it can be reborn anew. 
Disaster is the fire that burns out the old and allows for the new to be reborn. 
The sabbatical year is an artificial, pre-planned sort of disaster that requires the sort of solidarity common challenges tend to bring out in people.
