This week we're joined by Casper ter Kuile, author of The Power of Ritual: Turning Everyday Activities into Soulful Practices. While they share some of the same DNA, rituals are distinct from habits. To put it simply, repetition without intention and attention is a habit. But when you bring your presence and heart to an activity, that’s a ritual, and rituals give life more meaning and purpose.
Casper ter Kuile, a Harvard Divinity School fellow and cohost of the popular Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast, recently published his book, The Power of Ritual: Turning Everyday Activities into Soulful Practices. Casper is also the co-founder of startup Sacred Design Lab—a research and design consultancy working to create a culture of belonging and becoming—and he is the co-author of “How We Gather.” His work has been featured in the New York Times, Vice, The Atlantic, and the Washington Post. Casper holds a Masters of Divinity and Public Policy from Harvard University.
