Rituals and Seasons. Belief and Nature: Panel Talk

Part of Belief and Beyond Belief

Consider what rituals you hold dear, and why, at this event exploring how they impact human life.

What makes a ritual? From ancient sites of worship such as Stonehenge to modern wedding ceremonies, what it is about ritual that gives human life meaning and purpose? And how do the seasons shape the way we structure ritual, and even religion itself?

From ancient natural religions to contemporary faiths, we explore the religious beliefs which draw deeply on nature in order to reach transcendence, and the rituals which give form and focus to the indescribable.
