Overview

As we evolve, so do our prayers; as our prayers evolve, so do we. This is the evolution of illumination, the collective voice of the soul of the world.

How Do You Pray? was born from a vision in which Celeste Yacoboni was told to ask the world, "How Do You Pray?" She reached out to leading spiritual, shamanic, scientific teachers, guides, and activists and asked for their response. Culled from those responses is an original and deeply personal collection of essays. Talking intimately and candidly about how they pray, these personalities encourage the reader to contemplate the intention of prayer in their own life.

This collection speaks to the reader's heart and asks What is your soul's expression? How do you dance in ecstasy, bare your soul to the divine? Bow in gratitude? Merge with nature? Cry out for guidance? How do you pray?

This groundbreaking and moving book gathers responses from leaders of diverse spiritual and religious traditions ranging from Buddhism to Islam to Christianity, as well as those who do not claim one or any particular walk of faith. Contributors include Brother David Steindl-Rast, Matthew Fox, James O'Dea, Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Tessa Bielecki, Lama Surya Das, Hank Wesselman, Father Bede Griffiths, Byron Katie, Joan Halifax, Normandi Ellis, Andrew Harvey, Dan Millman, Kristena Prater, Nicki Scully, Mirabai Starr, and more.

This book is a beautiful gift package with matte laminate cover and red ribbon.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"If you want to learn how to be more creative, study Leonardo da Vinci or Thomas Edison. If you'd like to improve your cooking skill, watch Michael Symon or Cat Cora on "Iron Chef." And if you want to enrich your inner life, immerse yourself in the beautiful examples of prayer from spiritual teachers, visionaries and thought leaders in this exquisite volume. How Do You Pray? offers
creative inspiration and rich nourishment for all seekers."--Michael J. Gelb, author of How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci and Innovate Like Edison

"This is a book that many will be putting into their pockets and carrying with them to inspire them on a daily basis. This is a book that not only inspires, but reminds us of the inner connection that powers this world of reality. Celeste Yacoboni has planted a seed to awaken our memory! Let our hearts unify as we celebrate our diversity and the spiritual nature we walk with."--Jyoti, Spiritual Director for the Center for Sacred Studies and Ambassador to the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers

"Each humble seeker will discern the language of prayer, the language of the heart, in his or her own way, guided by the Love that interpenetrates all existence. Nonetheless, we are richly fed and inspired by the words and witness of others in their explorations and practice within this mysterious
and ultimately ordinary domain. In this feast of a book, Celeste Yacoboni presents us with dozens of invitations to stop, to listen, to let go, to wonder, to shout in praise, to cry with longing. Here is a gift for all lovers of God, whatsoever Name is assigned to that One."--Regina Sara Ryan, author of Praying Dangerously and Igniting the Inner Life

"Celeste’s book is not just entertaining, or interesting, or inspiring. It’s positively revolutionary."--Arjuna Ardagh, author of The Translucent Revolution

"The book exudes sacredness."-- Jamal Rahman, author of Spiritual Gems of Islam: Insights & Practices from the Qur'an, Hadith, Rumi & Muslim Teaching Stories to Enlighten the Heart & Mind
