Praying Body and Soul

Never before published in English, this is a step-by-step exercise book integrating the Christian tradition of contemplation and the Eastern wisdom of meditation. Fr. de Mello's stories and spiritual guidance are provocative, filled with humor, and grounded in everyday experiences.

Each chapter offers an awareness activity, a point of focus, and a visioning exercise using stories from the Bible, and concludes with a short parable or text from tradition. The texts draw clarity from the Ignation Exercises and reflect a profound understanding of the relevance of prayer and meditation in today’s world.
