Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood wrote Your Hidden Riches: Unleashing the Power of Ritual to Create a Life of Meaning and Purpose to provide focus and direction for those looking to uncover their unique Life Design. The information and practices they share in its pages come out of the work they have done internationally over many years. Throughout the book, they share stories, both their own and others, relating to each of the rituals they describe.
The book begins with the Attwoods’ reasons for using and providing rituals as their focus. Everyone has them or has participated in them, from family dinners and holidays to weddings and graduations. Some are perhaps related to religious or spiritual practices. Most people have strong emotions attached to them, some positive and others negative. It is their belief that rituals can be used to express dreams and desires. By so doing, rituals can reform and create a brighter and better future for each person.
The book is divided into three parts: Rituals and Your Ideal Life, Rituals to Meet Your Needs, and Your Greatest Riches. In the chapters within each section are the personal stories as well as directions for rituals one can practice to create a more effective and productive life.
Your Hidden Riches could be a helpful guide for someone who is looking to use rituals to improve or focus his or her life. It is consistent with the genre of other self-help books on positive thinking and the actions that accompany it. The directions for rituals are well thought out and easy to follow, providing the reader with a good action plan. All in all, this is an uplifting and practical read.
