The Power of Ritual - 12/10

Dominique Haller

On today's show, we'll talk to cultural anthropologist Dr. Bradd Shore about the power of rituals. Dr. Shore is director of the Emory Center for Myth and Ritual in American Life (MARIAL) and currently focuses his research on the little things that we do every day without even noticing - our own rituals.

Do you have any rituals that are important to you? Do you create rituals for special occasions? Or do you see yourself as an entirely rational being that doesn't need such a thing as rituals?
