Synopsis: Living Passages for the Whole Family invites families to create meaningful rites of passage that allow family members to build intimacy, express gratitude, celebrate and heal the past, and approach the future with confidence and joy. Written from a multi-faith perspective, Living Passages includes creative ideas for celebrating contemporary rites of passage from birth to age 21 and provides guidance for making soulful connections to secular rites of passage in the 21st century. Called "empowering" by parent educator, Rahima Baldwin and "a masterpiece" by spiritual leader, Fr. Richard Rohr, Living Passages includes over 20 rites of passage ceremonies from weaning and honoring the first day of grade school, to puberty, driving, dating and leaving home for the first time, among others. Living Passages includes over 50 songs and poems to honor life transitions, ideas for celebrating birthday passages, guides for imparting age-appropriate rights and responsibilities in a young person's life, soulful wisdom and encouragement for parents, and ideas for parents and caregivers to reclaim and heal life passages from the past.
