The Importance of Rituals

From Canadian Broadcasting Corporation | Part of the 2021 Holiday Specials from CBC Radio series | 54:00

A one hour special on the meaning of rituals, and the power they hold. A conversation with author Sasha Sagan (daughter of the late astronomer Carl Sagan).

Tapestry_small_small

CBC Radio’s “Tapestry” presents a one hour special on the meaning of rituals, and the power they hold. 

Sasha Sagan, whose mother is writer Ann Druyan and father is the late astronomer Carl Sagan, grew up in a secular household. But that didn't mean rituals weren't important. She explores the idea in her book For Small Creatures Such as We: Rituals for Finding Meaning in Our Unlikely World.”

She recalls a cab driver telling her and her husband, then newlyweds, to sing the alphabet — and to do it weekly. Now, her family does it every Saturday, and she says it's these kinds of traditions or rituals that help people find meaning and beauty, even if it isn't part of a faith.   

"There's a lot of different people who are doing these like funny, quirky things together and maybe not always seeing them as rituals," said Sagan. 

"But they are a way of connecting you to what is, you know, meaningful and deep and beautiful to you."

Host: Mary Hynes
