The Little Giant Encyclopedia of Meditations & Blessings
by Nathaniel Altman 
Open yourself up to a higher power and find peace, solace, and healing. If you're looking for more to life than the material world offers, these hundreds of meditations, prayers, and blessings from a wide variety of the world's traditions will bring comfort and well-being. Meditation cuts through and calms the tangled mass of feelings that rage through our minds. Nurture the positive spark that lies within by practicing daily meditations to expand the mind, contact energy, and manage pain. Some of them employ candles, sacred symbols, mantras, music, and nature. For each, there are instructions on breathing, posture, and visualization. If meditation encourages listening to a greater spirit, prayers address God--and here are ones for adoration, petition, and silent communion that come from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jain, Native America, and more. Some are nondenominational. Finish with blessings, a powerful way to praise the Divine and share loving energy with others. The author lives in Brooklyn, NY. 512 pages, 4 3/16 x 5 1/4.
