Authors Evan Imber-Black and Janine Roberts show how we can learn to tap the power of rituals to mark transitions, express important values, heal the past, and deepen relationships. Each chapter looks at the special issues and possibilities for nuclear, extended, single-parent, and remarried families, as well as for single adults and couples. The authors also pay particular attention to how changing gender roles are reflected in our rituals, and how revitalized traditions can actually alter the course of intimate relationships. Filled with first-person stories and practical examples, this book will help all readers enhance the meaning of traditions old and new, reinforcing and celebrating life's many milestones and ties.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderful book that helps put people in touch with what is most central in their lives, and offers new and inspiring ways of looking at ourselves and our relationships. -- Harriet Goldhor Lerner, Ph.D., author of The Dance of Anger and The Dance of Intimacy
[The authors] brilliantly demonstrate how we can, and indeed, must reanimate old rituals and create new ones. With masterful clinical and cultural sensitivity and inspiring inventiveness, they show us how, through ritual, we can give to our lives, to our loves, to our comings and goings, the experience of meaning that we need to feel healed, whole, and connected-coherent within ourselves, in union with others, in continuity with time past and future. -- Richard Chasin, M.D., codirector, Family Institute of Cambridge; associate clinical professor of psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
