REVIEW BY PEGI EYERS
As both a spiritual guide and practical workbook, Rites and Responsibilities includes exercises for knowing the self, essential mindsets for initiation, new possibilities for cultural identity, tools for mentoring and other supports, creating personal rituals, the importance of ancestral connection, and facing the complexities of late-stage capitalism. With an emphasis on bonding to nature and learning from First Nations, this guidebook weaves the values of cross-cultural protocols and collective liberation with finding our special roles and skills, and embracing healthy relationships, both with people and the land.
To step through the gateway into adulthood requires the preparations as outlined in this important book, and this transition can happen even in our later years. True adulthood means taking on a path of service, adopting the practices of the authentic, or initiated life, and holding a deep understanding of our connectivity to Beloved Community, both human and other-than-human. Embodying the ancestral wisdom of rites of passage is essential in this era of massive change, and Rites and Responsibilities: A Guide to Growing Up will take us on that journey of transformation.
