Casper ter Kuile, Peter Block & Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp discuss how to develop a ritual to discover the possibilities in our neighborhoods.
Drawing on Casper’s most recent book, The Power of Ritual: Turning Everyday Activities into Soulful Practices, and Peter’s Possibility conversation (in his book Community: The Structure of Belonging), this conversation will explore the possibilities present in ritual to transform our communities. Focusing on gift-mindedness and setting an intention to encounter and connect, this event will also draw on the poetry and practical experience of Rabbi Miriam Terlinchamp and attendees will be invited to be active participants in this emerging conversation.
