              Rites to a Good Life is the definitive guide on how to think about and restore practices of ritual healing to everyday contemporary life. This exhaustive handbook is essential for the well-being of all individuals, families, and communities. Poised in the middle of a conversation... between the ancient past and the present-day, Marx translates indigenous wisdom practices into the needs and realities of our present-day world. This is a spiritual book for all those who've given up on religion and spirituality, yet recognize that something is missing in their life. There's nothing New-Agey here. It's full of no-nonsense practical suggestions. Self-help books tend to focus on the individual (i.e. Here's what's wrong with you that you need to fix. ) But what if there were nothing to fix? What if we only needed to drop more deeply into what already IS, experience it more fully, and then consecrate it with simple ritual? This book focuses on the key processes and relationships that make that possible (i.e. between parent and child, individual and community, individual and nature). With a final chapter focusing on all the upheavals during 2020's Planetary Rite of Passage (i.e. Covid, the economy, Black Lives Matter, and political turmoil), Marx clarifies what happened and the opportunity that exists for all of us to create positive change. The times demand change and Marx tells us what rebirth might look like. Outdated tropes must die (i.e. Looking out for #1, Every man for himself, and Whoever dies with the most toys wins. ). This definitive handbook is full of practical advice for: - What parents can do with children. - How families can restore relations across the generations. - How to gain sustenance from nature. - Where to find the mentorship we require. - Who the leaders are who can introduce us to the future.
