內容簡介

內容簡介 儀式的力量!要擁有強大靈性,不見得要成為宗教信徒。Casper ter Kuile 是哈佛神學院的研究員,也是廣受歡迎的podcast《哈利波特與神聖文本》的共同主持人,他探討我們如何透過尋常的活動,包括:瑜伽、閱讀、遛狗,這些日常練習可轉化為具療癒的神聖儀式來強化心靈、滋養我們的靈魂,尤其在我們身處社會孤立危機,和尋找目標的同時。在 COVID-19 時代,比以往任何時候都更需要精神和情感依歸。 「經過五年的研究,並與全國各地的人們進行了數百次對話,我相信我們正處於典範轉移的過程之中。昔日的精神奉獻不再幫助我們茁壯成長,過去維繫社區的東西不再起作用。」因此,Kuile進而提出了疑問與建議: 「靈魂飛輪」(SoulCycle)、感恩日記和科技暫離,這些流行產業的行話有什麼共同點?對Kuile而言,他們提供的儀式為我們的現代精神生活奠定了基礎。 今日,我們處於危機之中。現代的科技社會讓太多人(無論年齡大小)感到孤立無援和失去目標。從前建立社區和尋找意義的框架不再支持我們。然而,Kuile 揭開了一個充滿希望的新信息:我們可能沒有宗教信仰,但這並不意味著我們失去靈性。 相反,我們正處於典範轉移之中,在世俗實踐中尋求歸屬感和意義。當今,我們到了聯繫如下:混合健身(CrossFit )和靈魂飛輪( SoulCycle),一樣是根植於責任感和支持,它們提供的歸屬感,就像教會團體一樣。哈利波特以及任何的愛書提供了通識課程。感恩日記,取代了傳統的祈禱。科技暫離,提供了意識的平靜時刻。 在《儀式的力量》(The Power of Ritual)中,作者邀請我們將這些日常實踐深化為有意識的儀式,以培養聯繫和幸福感。憑藉智慧和可愛的機智,對儀式的最終呼籲是為了治癒失去自我連結的自己、他人和我們的精神身份。 儀式的力量提醒我們,我們每天已成就的事情很重要——並且有可能成為一種強大的反思、庇護和意義體驗。Casper ter Kuile, a Harvard Divinity School fellow and cohost of the popular Harry Potter and the Sacred Text podcast, explores how we can nourish our souls by transforming common, everyday practices—yoga, reading, walking the dog—into sacred rituals that can heal our crisis of social isolation and struggle to find purpose—a message we need more than ever for our spiritual and emotional well-being in the age of COVID-19.“After half a decade of research and hundreds of conversations with people around the country, I am convinced we are in the midst of a paradigm shift. That what used to hold us in community no longer works, and that the spiritual offerings of yesteryear no longer help us thrive.”–Casper ter KuileWhat do Soul Cycle, gratitude journals, and tech breaks have in common? For ter Kuile they offer rituals that create the foundation for our modern spiritual lives. We are in crisis today. Our modern technological society has left too many of us—no matter our ages—feeling isolated and bereft of purpose. Previous frameworks for building community and finding meaning no longer support us. Yet ter Kuile reveals a hopeful new message: we might not be religious, but that doesn’t mean we are any less spiritual. Instead, we are in the midst of a paradigm shift in which we seek belonging and meaning in secular practices. Today, we find connection in:CrossFit and SoulCycle, which offer a sense of belonging rooted in accountability and support much like church groupsHarry Potter and other beloved books that offer universal lessons Gratitude journals, which have replaced traditional prayer Tech breaks, which provide mindful moments of calm In The Power of Ritual, ter Kuile invites us to deepen these ordinary practices as intentional rituals that nurture connection and wellbeing. With wisdom and endearing wit, ter Kuile’s call for ritual is ultimately a call to heal our loss of connection to ourselves, to others, and to our spiritual identities.The Power of Ritual reminds us that what we already do every day matters—and has the potential to become a powerful experience of reflection, sanctuary, and meaning.
