The reason I purchased the e-book version of this book is that I misplaced my hard copy which grew to be an essential tool of my inter-faith ministry in health care. There is a treasure trove of wisdom contained within these pages from many and varied sources, showing the common thread that runs through all professed truth seekers. I would never be without it.

This compilation is a timeless companion to anyone coming from an Interspiritual perspective. Each day, organized by season of the year, is appropriate to healing self: mind, body, and spirit. My partner and I start our day by reading and reflecting on each prayer/meditation. Let it become a daily ritual/rite for you as well.
No matter what your cultural or religious backround may be, here you will find meditations that speak to you personally. Even if you are an atheist or agnostic, the words from the great philosophers and poets included here will inspire you.
