This easy-to-read book is a unique source of both inspiration and practical advice to help couples, celebrants, and clergy to create a Unity Candle or Sand Ceremony that meets their individual needs and be confident that not only will the ritual flow smoothly on the day but the photographs will be wonderful. It takes a fresh look at both rituals, challenges readers to consider what the ritual symbolizes for them personal, presents creative alternatives, and guides the reader through the process of developing a unique and personal version of each ceremony, and choosing or creating the items you will need to carry out the ritual.Using the tools and examples provided you will be able to develop a ritual that brings together all three of the critical elements required to create a truly amazing wedding or commitment ceremony: words that convey layers of meaning and the depth of the couple's love for each other, music to stir the emotions; and the visual element, what the guests see unfolding before them, to express feelings that go beyond words.

In this richly depicted story, told in vignettes relative to markers of age and experience, Patricia Eagle reveals the heartbreak and destruction of her sexual abuse, from age four to thirteen, by her father. A victim of her father’s anger and her mother’s complacency with his abusive behavior, Eagle uses dissociation and numbing in response to the abuse, and as a way to block her own sense of self. How does a child confused by episodes of abuse come to know what is safe or unsafe, right or wrong, normal or abnormal? How does a young woman learn the difference between real love and a desire for sexual pleasure stimulated by abusive childhood sexual experiences? Careening through life, Eagle wonders how to trust others and, most importantly, herself. As a mature woman struggling to understand and live with her past, she remains earnest in her pursuit of clarity, compassion, and trust to build a stronger life. Being Mean is about blocking sexual abuse memories, having them surface, then learning how to acknowledge and live with incomprehensible experiences in the healthiest ways possible.
