Prayer Medicine

Prayer Medicine

Louis M. Savary and
Patricia Berne

This refreshing approach to the tensions and frustrations of contemporary life combines strategies derived from various forms of psychotherapeutic, meditational and "centering" practices with a tender and devotionally rich application of the more traditional forms of prayer. The book teaches us how to use prayer to deepen our contact with others, balance our energy, affirm others as a way to self-healing. It teaches us how to overcome frustration, depression, and burn-out, and speaks to those who long to rediscover the virtues of traditional worship while applying more contemporary approaches to the stresses of modern existence.

Five sections offer appropriate forms of "prayer medicine" to balance inner energy (including the use of Christian "Mantras"), recognize and embrace emotions (both positive and negative), develop the reflective mind, find healing in physical activity, and deepen interpersonal connections.
