Ritually is a first-person experiential show that takes you on a new journey in every episode. Combining guest interviews, audio diaries, scene tape and reflections, the show creates a sense of intimacy and community with its listenership.
Host Nelufar Hedayat goes on a psychological and physical journey, asking herself what role spiritual and wellness rituals play in our fast-paced world. To find out, she tries a different ritual in every episode. From sacred readings of Harry Potter to tarot cards, Nelufar dives in with the help of a new spiritual guide each week to see if these practices can actually make her feel better.
Inspiring but never preachy, Ritually seeks answers to life’s big questions. This is a show for curious people and anyone who wants to find a sense of spirituality outside the confines of organized religion.
