Praying with the Body : Bringing the Psalms to Life
by Roy DeLeon




Overview -
Pray with more than just your mind--learn how to use your whole self

In this innovative prayer book, readers are invited to do more than read--they are asked to move in prayer by expressing the Psalms with motion. This way of praying helps deepen and broaden a relationship with God. It allows the pray-er to better come to understand God as "Holy One"--and in other timeless expressions of the psalmists.

In Praying with the Body readers will find both prayer tools and companionship. Black and white drawings showing the postures and expressions of the body, accompany the scripture texts and explanations by Roy DeLeon. Working together, these elements invite readers to taste, explore, and discover a new and different way of knowing God.

This book is for anyone who wants a more integrated and reconciled approach to prayer. It proposes a way of prayer that, depending on your level of readiness, could influence both our interior and daily life. Its meditations and reflections connect readers to their deepest needs to be with the Beloved, to be reassured of the divine presence in our midst. They address hunger and longing for true happiness, for freedom from fear, and for deep peace.

"The four basic ways of praying -oral, mental, affective, and contemplative--are all contained here." --Father Tom Ryan, author of Prayer of Heart and Body
