Synopsis:

This rich blend of prayers, poems, and sayings by women writers and sages from around the world and throughout history offers daily inspiration and delight. Included in this collection are diverse voices ranging from the early Sufi mystic Rabia and the trailblazing Mechtild of Magdeburg, to contemporary poets Denise Levertov, Kathleen Norris, Maya Angelou, Jane Hirshfield, and Mary Oliver. These and many other treasures of women’s wisdom are gathered here from such wide-ranging sources as Celtic blessings, Native American petitions, and Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Hindu, and Chinese prayers.

An expert on spirituality with a remark-able eye for the best inspirational literature, Ford-Grabowsky includes in this collection prayers of praise, thanks, petition, mystical ecstasy, and insight. Her book explores self-discovery, mothering, inner strength, needs, work, gratefulness, spiritual darkness, mysti-cal experience, and love.
