ABOUT THE BOOK
South African Judy Bekker has spent over 30 years working with modern day passage rites and initiation for daughters. The life stages between birth and death are many, and most pass without due attention or marking in our modern world. Yet the soul is calling for rituals to honour these times.
Calling the Daughters is part memoir, rich in narrative and serves as a handbook and a reflection tool enabling others to bring this ritual and process into their homes over a ten-week guided journey.
This wonderful book skillfully and lyrically drew me in, nourished me, amused me, expanded me and generally left me emerging from the reading feeling as though I had personally engaged in a process of growing and being seen. It is also multi-layered and nuanced beyond actual text. Brilliant.
The layout, type-face, delightful drawings, selected quotes and page proportions all enhance the experience.
