Publishers Description
Why "rituals"?
My thinking was set in motion by those who, knowing I was a parish minister for many years, have asked me for advice about ceremonies and celebrations. They wanted words to use at graduations, funerals, and the welcoming of children. They inquired about grace at family meals, the reaffirmation of wedding vows, and ways to heal wounds suffered in personal conflict. People requested help with the rituals of solitude, such as meditation, prayer, and contemplation. . . .
Rituals do not always involve words, occasions, officials, or an audience. Rituals are often silent, solitary, and self-contained. The most powerful rites of passage are reflective--when you look back on your life again and again, paying attention to the rivers you have crossed and the gates you have opened and walked on through, the thresholds you have passed over.
I see ritual when people sit together silently by an open fire.
As human beings have remembered for thousands and thousands of years.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Well, Maybe (Maybe not)  Sep 13, 2007
This is a good book, but you need to understand Mr. Fulghm is concentrating on the end of his life in this book. Still a good read of 2-5 page essays, he is alweays amusing to read.
Absolutely Wonderful!  Jul 17, 2004
This book has so much hope, and exudes respect for human experience. In essence, rituals are spiritual and they are found all the time in the lives we lead. Until we recognize this we will be less aware of the spiritual magic of being alive each and every day. Fulghum illuminates this page by page. He has a very philosophical view of life that is quite contagious. His presentation style is much like Garrison Keillor in the audiotape of this book I listened to. Soothing, but it jolts us awake with spiritual truths time and time again. I also like his sense of humor and his accepting of life and death.

You will respect your own life more after reading this book.

Fantastic Book!  Sep 21, 2002
This book is a great book to remind you of why we do certain things in life but moreso, to stretch your imagination to think of how you could bring new meaning to significant points in your life. There is an exceptional chapter on weddings. I've read and reread this book a couple of times! a great buy.
For the stories and the attitude...  Jul 13, 2000
The only parts of my own wedding I regret are those I didn't personalize enough; I wish this book had been around back when I was doing my planning. Fulghum doesn't provide concrete suggestions, so much as great stories, illustrations of the impact of ritual on our lives (in which he stands firmly with Jossepoh Campbell) and a wonderfully outrageous attitude toward making those rituals fit us, not the other way around. You won't take away exact ideas of what to do for your own ritual, but you will get the inspiration to make your own ritual fit you as perfectly as some of the ones described fit their participants.

On another level, the book is also worth reading just for the stories. As other readers have commented, the one about the second wedding is just beautiful.

Great analysis of rituals in our lives  Jan 21, 2000
Easy reading and wonderful for people who do not follow the normal rituals of life's experiences. To do what one desires for oneself and not be a follower made the reader feel good. Examples of all type of rituals were easily relatable.
