In this gentle and wise guide, a beloved spiritual teacher counsels that prayer works - but not always in the ways we expect. Welshons, who has worked closely with Ram Dass and Stephen Levine and trained with Dr. Elisabeth K(4)(Bbler-Ross, confronts life's most challenging experiences directly, acknowledging both the reality and inevitability of unexpected, unwanted change.
