Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Way We Pray is the first book to explore prayer practices from the world's many religions. Author Maggie Oman Shannon presents and celebrates fifty wonderfully diverse prayer practices, creating the perfect guide for spiritual explorers everywhere.

Among the powerful and colorful rituals described in the book are walking a labyrinth, speaking affirmations, writing in a gratitude journal, displaying prayer flags, dressing in ceremonial costumes, reading sacred scriptures, listening to the resonant sounds of a prayer bowl, drawing a mandala, counting prater beads, fasting, writing haiku, and chanting.

For each practice described, Maggie Oman Shannon offers historical details, meanings and interpretations, and stories and anecdotes from practicioners she interviewed. She also includes suggestions for bringing these rituals into one's existing spiritual practice.

Synopsis:

The word "prayer" often conjures images of bowed head and folded hands, but this important ritual of being in the presence of the divine has a much wider variety of expression. Labyrinth walking, speaking affirmations, writing in a journal, dressing in ceremonial costume, drawing mandalas, and writing haiku are just a few modern techniques for connecting with a higher power. The Way We Pray explores 50 prayer practices and provides historic details, interpretations, and stories pertaining to each one. The book also contains guidelines for bringing such rituals into one's existing practice, such as the symbols to pay attention to when creating a mandala and the ideal length of prayer beads and rosaries.
