Ritual helps us as humans mark a moment, make meaning amidst complexity and take time to express the fundamental values that anchor our lives. Belief in a higher power, religious attendance, personal practice, and identity labels can overlap with ritual in nuanced ways, or not at all. Join field leaders in this engaging conversation to explore the role of ritual amidst demographic shifts and a contested public sphere in a period of dramatic social change.
