Marking Life's Stages - The Mystery of Rites of Passage


True stories of change ... Lessons learned to share ...

This book has been a journey spanning years; starting as a project to re-publish Australian Don Bowaks wonderful book of the same name, it has grown into so much more. It contains true personal stories of men and women and their journey to adulthood as well as a manual on how to create 'Rites of Passage' for your family or community.

Included within the pages are Don Bowaks original book of the same title. We have included key aspects of several of our teachers and mentors work including; Joseph Campbell, Bill Plotkin, Dr Arne Rubinstein, Michael Jude, Bret Stephenson.

Also included in the book are stories from men and women involved with the work of inspiring young people as well as directly involved with 'The Rites of Passage Foundation'.

We hand them out at the return of our events and ask people for a minimum of $30 to cover for (future) printing cost and a minimum donation.  Find out more...
