Why Ritual Makes Sense

Religious ritual is strange, but there is a method to its madness. The many forms it takes, from meditation to ecstatic dance, from the solemnity of the LDS endowment to ceremonies involving psychotropic drugs, all point toward a coherent vision of who we are and how this secret is so easily obscured by our day-to-day experience. This session explores why ritual can lead participants to feel empowered with a greater sense of orientation and peace.
