The Power of Ritual with Cat Kessler

Cat Kessler

Cat Kessler wants to bring more ritual and reflection to your life, and she’s started a business called Opt Inward to help you do just that. She joins me this week to talk about how she discovered the importance of ritual in her own life, what modern ritual can look like and how we can fit it into our lives, where ritual and self-care intersect, the writing of Madeleine L’Engle, and what we can learn about spirituality, creativity, and ourselves from the book and new TV series Good Omens.

Not all self-care vacations have to be in Bali. They can be in your bedroom for 20 minutes in the evening. What are the opportunities to insert little bits of examination, of flipping our own beliefs on their heads, that might lead us to becoming more of whatever it is that we want out of life?
