    The use of ritual

    Here is a very interesting article:

    Itís not easy being green: If rational persuasion fails to make people behave environmentally, could rituals and a dash of guilt do a better job?

    It interests me for three reasons -

    A) it gives useful information about the value of rituals, and of how & why they work (when they do)

    B) 'splains how to put that info to practicle use (in this case, environmental issues)

    C) details the place where rational and non-rational intersect (a personal interest of mine, which one seldom finds good information on)
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Re: The use of ritual

    Thank you very much for posting that article. Long but worth the read. I have felt true grief over environmental damage. The grief kind of disempowered any changes I made to help. I feel like I know what to do with the grief now tyvm.
