Praying Dangerously instructs us that we can grow up spiritually, leaving behind a childish relationship to prayer as a superstitious ritual or mere plea for favors. It encourages readers to recognize the difference between prayer that asks only for reassurance, and prayer that asks for the Ultimate, and stands for transformation. "We can cease being a victims' of God's Will, while at the same time embracing genuine surrender and reliance on the irrefutable power of love, a says author and retreat leader Regina Sara Ryan. Readers of the first edition (published in 2001) were enthusiastic in their praise, calling it a brave and useful book. Prayer groups and church congregations around the U.S. have used it for study, and it has been translated into Dutch, German and French. And the message of the book is more relevant now than it was 10 years ago. The insecurities of our times draw us inward or back to our churches. In prayer groups and retreats of all kinds we are looking for comfort and consolation, for spiritual direction, or for answers to the eternal questions that have always challenged humanity. This book is a valued contribution in that search. This 10th anniversary edition is fully revised, with several completely new chapters including: "The High Cost of Forgivenessa -a subject that challenges everyone-and "Praying on the Subway, a about how our generally busy and often chaotic lives can provide us with a constant impetus for blessing others.

Unwrapping Beloved S Gift Co Creating Soul S Song

“I think the best way you could describe this text is, as put it in the Introduction, ‘a meditative map.’ I know for certain that I did not grasp everything and also that I could return to it over the years and read it again and again, always finding something new, or something that had before remained unseen due to my own place in my own unique spiritual journey” (Lauren Sapala, writer, blogger, and coach). “One day, unexpected and unhoped for, the world we had thought irretrievably lost may be returned to us” (I. Zaleski 2006). It began with reading John O’Donohue’s Anam Cara. I remembered I had once known such a friend and reached out to reconnect. Love opened the door, hope kept it open, and faith gave me the courage to walk through. These words summarized my subsequent spiritual journey as I awakened to deep friendship with a human beloved as well as with Divine Beloved. This book has two purposes: to describe an inner spiritual journey inspired by deep friendship and to offer that description as a meditative map for others. Isaura Barrera identifies five way stations that trace the path carved out by the song of love, hope, and faith evoked by her renewed friendship. Each station is presented descriptively rather than prescriptively as an invitation to others on similar journeys. Reflections at each station are linked to scriptural passages, highlighting connections between deep friendship with a human beloved and deep friendship with Divine Beloved.

Women Challenge The Lie

This book invites women of all ages into a conversation that challenges the pervasive lie of "never good enough." This common subtext of modern life undermines a woman's appreciation of her own inherent beauty and goodness. The authors recommend 8 Radical Moves that women can make, alone or ideally in the good company of other women, to take on this challenge, to deepen this conversation. The Moves are radical because they aim directly at the center of a woman's being, the inner space of her true nature, her basic goodness, rather than because they require any extreme actions. Nonetheless, the conviction that "never good enough" is a lie requires more than lip service. The authors guide readers in identifying the courage, strength and love they already possess, but habitually deny, to embrace and live by this conviction of self respect, day to day in mind, body and heart. They further encourage women to make this stand with and in the presence of other women to increase everybody's likelihood for success. Regina Sara Ryan, author of numerous books in wellness, women's studies and spirituality (Wellness Workbook; Woman Awake; Igniting the Inner Life) is an elder in her seventies. Shinay Tredeau, a yoga teacher, lifestyle coach, dancer and emerging writer is a "millennial" in her twenties. Together, they bring to this warm and personal treatment a synergy of years of experience in contemplative spiritual practice and dynamic body discipline. Their message is addressed to their sisters, mothers, friends and students, of all ages; to any who suffer from the dis-ease of self-hatred in some form. Each of the 8 Radical Moves provides a slightly different access to clearer self-understanding, leading to self-compassion. For some, the Move to "Inhabit Your Body" will be key to claiming (or reclaiming) a more loving relationship with themselves. For others, the Move called "Learn to Fly" will be just the encouragement needed to refine a spiritual search. Other topics include: - the danger of comparisons with other women - the need to face dark emotions, with compassion - the power of friendship in the quest for self-acceptance - the use of journal writing to articulate developing truth - gratitude as a way of life. This straightforward and challenging narrative is filled with dozens of personal stories, making it ideal for women's groups and book clubs to study and practice.
