  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) February 16, 2011 - After many requests for its re-appearance, The Joy of Family Rituals, by author and spiritual guide Barbara Biziou has been released in paperback by Cosimo Books. This book, a wonderful complement to The Joy of Ritual, is a recipe book for families wishing to participate in rituals as part of everyday routine to make their lives more fruitful and enriching. It describes the tools you need to perform rituals for small and big events that occur as families grow: ingredients are given special, sacred meaning and families can adapt Barbara Biziou's advice to their own needs and traditions.

    Biziou, an internationally acclaimed teacher of spirituality, life coach to women, men and corporate clients, and a frequent media guest, is passionate about helping people to live the life of their dreams. She has had an auspicious start to the new year, appearing in a New York Times article, "Searching for the Soul to Cleanse It." This article not only brought attention to Biziou's practice and teachings, but also to the importance of ritual itself.

    "Reading The Joy of Family Rituals is like having a wise best friend to turn to for reassurance during troubled times or for thoughtful advice when you want to celebrate life's great evens with style and flair."
