About the Author

Maggie Oman Shannon is the author of Prayers for Healing and One God, Shared Hope and co-author of A String and a Prayer: Creating and Using Prayer Beads. She is a spiritual director and founder of The New Story (www.thenewstory.com), a coaching and consulting business focused on helping people create deeper meaning in their lives.

About the Book
The word "prayer" often conjures images of bowed head and folded hands, but this important ritual of being in the presence of the divine has a much wider variety of expression. Labyrinth walking, speaking affirmations, writing in a journal, dressing in ceremonial costume, drawing mandalas, and writing haiku are just a few modern techniques for connecting with a higher power.

The Way We Pray explores 50 prayer practices and provides historic details, interpretations, and stories pertaining to each one. The book also contains guidelines for bringing such rituals into one's existing practice, such as the symbols to pay attention to when creating a mandala and the ideal length of prayer beads and rosaries.
