Throughout her extensive career in health care, Dr. Margaret M. Rappaport has witnessed a good and necessary shift in attitudes and understandings about how to achieve and maintain lasting health and wellness through the practice of mindfulness.
Today, more than ever, people are woefully disconnected and out of touch with their spirits, creating damaging rifts between body and soul. In Body Prayer, Dr. Rappaport educates readers about the key roles meditation and prayer play in living better and longer lives.
Using beautiful anatomical illustrations of the complex interior of the human body, Dr. Rappaport explores the techniques and rituals of meditation and prayer and makes suggestions for appreciating and strengthening the connections between the systems of the body and higher levels of consciousness.
With gentleness and compassion, Dr. Rappaport demonstrates how accessing intellect and intuition through meditation and prayer are the keys to knowing more about ourselves as both individuals and members of the larger community-and how this awareness leads to an enhanced sense of well-being and improved longevity for all.
