Ritual is more than just a nice way to spend a meeting. It actually changes your brain, and how you perceive the world. In this episode, we’ll explore what role ritual plays in creating bonds between brothers. We’ll also look at how ritual works to effect change and why it is important not to mess with it, even if we don’t understand its meaning right away. In fact, a candidate who doesn’t immediately “get” the degree is essential to the transformation process from profane to brother. This is the real secret psychology of Freemasonry.
