This book touches on our growing desire to find a more natural approach to life. For many of us, the society in which we live no longer provides meaningful or individual ceremonies, so we are looking to alternative ceremonies instead. internationally acclaimed author, Michael Jordan, presents a practical guide to celebrating major life events such as adolescence and marriage, as well as changing rhythms of nature and our place in the universe.
