'There are beautiful and wild forces within us.'' With these words, the mystic St. Francis described what ancient traditions believed was the most powerful force in the universe - the power of prayer. For more than 20 years, Gregg Braden has searched for evidence of a forgotten form of prayer that was lost in the West following the biblical edits of the early Christian Chu ...more

Excerpt from book
" During the Israeli-Lebanese war of the early 1980s, researchers trained a group of people to "feel" peace in their bodies rather than simply to think about peace in their minds or pray "for" peace to occur.

On specific days of the month, at specific times of each day, these people were positioned throughout the war-torn areas of the Middle East. During the window of time that they were feeling peace, terrorist activities stopped, crimes against people declined, emergency room

Thank You for writing this book and sharing with myself and the world your knowledge and learning from your amazing travels around the world. I loved this book it held so much beauty, it made tears come to my eyes in so many parts of it. I have always tried to take the good in everything, that creates strength in myself and let the rest go. Your book added grace and beauty to the ability to bless everyone no matter who they are or what we think they have done to us. It was a joy reading each and ...more

The object of this book is to teach that prayer as we know it in modern America, has lost a lot of meaning and can only truly be understood by truly searching some of the ancient works that have been diluted by time.

I get a real sense from reading this book that this is exactly what I have been seeing in my own evolution and understanding of my communication with God, as I have moved closer to Him and begun to understand the true purpose and method of connecting with Him.

Prayer is not the words,
Well written book offering a different perspective to prayer. Braden emphasizes the imporance of feeling in prayer, which is a lost art in the modern world. Braden does a good job of bridging the gap between science and religion. He is clear, to the point, and inspiring. I am lookimg forward to reading more books by this author.
I found his discussion of praying from the feeling of having already had your prayers answered interesting. I'm also wanting to read more on the importance of beauty and blessing in everything.

Really beautifully put together. An inspiring book filled with wisdom.

I enjoyed the book a lot. First, I love Braden and his approach to a number of things. Secondly, in every man's life there comes a time best described by the following words: “I still pray but it's something automatic, and I'm not even sure I still believe in it... Because I've suffered, and God didn't listen to my prayers. because many times in my life I have tried to love with all my heart, and my love has wound up being” - then it is good to read Braden's book, it depicts a prayer in a totall ...more

I found this little book hidden away in a used bookstore. I simply liked the look of it- hardback and looks like an old text. I've read other Braden books and the title of this one intrigued me. I can't say that I'm a person who prays but the subject interests me. Nothing real new in here but I like the idea of rather than importuning for something,you act and "feel" like you already have it. Sounds a bit "New Agey" but he reports that the ancients did it this way and I do like his scientific ap ...more

... This is a swift read that makes a few points and makes them well. Braden gives the reader a lackluster example of a trauma through which he has survived and thus become that much more powerful when he details the disappearance of a pet cat. Forgiving that and embracing the caramel nuggets at its heart, this book could awaken the reader to a couple of small things worth doing that might tweak life’s trajectory for the better.

I like to hear him talk and this is a pretty little book. It doesn't say anything new but what I find irritating about Gregg Braden is when he says "science today proves that..", "scientists today say that...". Who? What scientists? What studies? If what he claims is already an universal true how come it's not on the news? I am not saying I don't believe what he says because it's within my belief system but he should be specific when he tries to present a theory.
This a beautiful, small volume that illustrates how my imagination and actions engage new openings in reality: thus a more coherent definition of the communion of prayer. The author takes a personal, conversational tone, and reveals personal examples that help make clear the elements of personal transformation.

Gregg writes about the fifth mode of prayer. Praying from the know. came out way before the secret but has a smilar message although I like lost mode much more. the secret misses or for some reason people miss that it is about feeling (not emotion) much more than thought
Sammy Sutton
An excellent perspective on prayer and intentions. Gregg has an interesting theory based on the universe. He does not attribute his theories or outcome to religion, and as a former cold war scientist, he often intertwines science to form an interesting hypothesis.
This book is truly amazing! It is a must read for people of all faiths. It offers simple actions anyone can do. After reading it, I feel that I need to read it again so that I can put it all together for me.
Peter Daigle
Awesome interpretation on prayer being linked to feeling, not just words. I related to it very much!

Very interesting book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have begun using some of his ideas in my life.
Nettes Buch. Der Tip mit dem Segnen ist besonders klasse. Auch gut zum Verschenken geeignet
Carrie Lynne
Wow! What a powerful book about prayer, blessing, and ultimately forgiveness and widsom that come.
By far my favorite of Braden's works I have read. Him at his best, insightful and practical.
