Banyen's Description: 

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 129 personalities encourage the reader to contemplate the nature and intention of prayer in their own life.

This ‘interspiritual’ anthology 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 many more.

The way we pray provides a mirror to our soul. It reflects the most fundamental values and beliefs, hopes and dreams, fears and doubts. Prayer unifies us with each other and ourselves by reminding us of the divine essence within. How Do You Pray? embodies this essence with deep personal sharing… And it comes at an auspicious time; as we are honoring traditions, all the while we are breaking free of limiting beliefs that no longer serve us. We are evolving a new spirituality that integrates old and new, traditional and alternative, individual and collective. —from the Introduction

“In this dazzling collection of praises to the One, an array of spiritual practitioners shares intimate glimpses into their inner lives. What a privilege! What stunning beauty, naked humility, startling insight. This is no standard collection of established devotions; it is a full-bodied, broken-openhearted love song to the Great Mystery.” —Mirabai Starr
