At seventeen, Mitra Rahbar left her homeland due to political unrest. However, she would soon find her way in an unfamiliar land through an ever-deepening prayer life that led her to her soul s core. Turning outward, she pursued a life of service first as a social worker and then as a spiritual teacher, healer, and guide. Having worked with students from many walks of life for more than thirty years, Rahbar has a deep understanding of what spiritual seekers long to learn and how best to teach them.
In "Miraculous Silence," she takes us on a journey into the sacred space of prayer and spiritual healing, providing practical guidance on how to pray and meditate, as well as many of her own prayers to inspire and encourage us. Rahbar also suggests images to visualize and meditate on, mantras to recite in every situation, and stones to aid in the healing process. In these practices, prayers, and inspirations, you will find comfort, illumination, and renewal."

Spiritual teacher Rahbar combines the prayer traditions and practices of East and West to create this prayer guide and resource. Rahbars focus is on prayers to Godand all they entail. She shares her own life story to demonstrate to readers how a strong prayer commitment creates a bond with God, offering strength in troubled times. The book is an instructional guide for a variety of seekers and will be a useful resource about prayer practices that may be less well known among Western seekersreciting mantras, meditation, visualization, stones. Rahbar includes many prayers she has written herself and suggested situations for praying them. A good balance of techniques and resources, theistic readers both traditional and more new age will find this a helpful resource. (Jan.)
