Discover the secrets of prayer for healing and inner peace.

This is a book about prayer—but not the kind of prayer that you are probably familiar with. It is a book about prayer that will teach you how to get in touch with the universe and communicate with Spirit.

It is a book that will initiate you into a new way of being, one that will incorporate the wisdom of the ages. José Luis Stevens will lead you on a spiritual path that covers the entire range of human experience, from gratitude, worship, and celebration to grief, guilt, affliction, supplication, and suffering. This incredibly potent spiritual practice is one of humankind’s most ancient and enduring activities and is as prevalent today as it was thousands of years ago.

Building on his decades of training and teaching in the shamanic tradition, Stevens offers a complete guide to this universal, transformative practice in How to Pray the Shaman’s Way. This book is not only an in-depth exploration of prayer as an innate human phenomenon but also a practical guide for initiating or deepening your own rich prayer practice. Packed with inspired prayers that can be adapted for many different traditions, this book is a deep dive into the world of personal transformation, healing, and spiritual guidance.
