This book, Mov­ing For­ward, based on the author’s doc­tor­al research, mines the ancient divorce rit­u­al, the GET, for its wis­dom in heal­ing the wounds of divorce in the mod­ern sec­u­lar world. Unlike the Jew­ish tra­di­tion, the mod­ern sec­u­lar world offers no rit­u­al to hon­our the good in our failed mar­riages, mourn the loss­es, and move for­ward with dig­ni­ty and respect. The book weaves togeth­er the wis­dom of the ancient sages, the authors many years of clin­i­cal expe­ri­ence, and the needs of those in the mod­ern world fac­ing the wounds of divorce, to pro­vide prac­ti­cal, psy­cho­log­i­cal, and spir­i­tu­al con­sid­er­a­tions for those seek­ing, in our mod­ern world, to cre­ate their own arche­typ­al heal­ing rit­u­als of divorce.
