Prayers for Healing

It only takes a little while to reflect on your day, read a poem, or say a prayer. Mango Publishing has released this book, Prayers for Healing, with a blessing, poem or meditation for each day of the year. An introduction is provided by The Dalai Lama.

I’m not a big fan of poetry, so reading this book was outside of what I would typically enjoy. It is an interfaith book, and it doesn’t have a theme to tie it all together. The blessings, poems, and meditations are from all over the world – so that’s very diverse! For me, I started reading this book, and it didn’t keep my attention. It seemed too scattered for me. The book does not seem to have anything to bind it together- there is no unifying season, theme, or anything that every day has in common – there’s no common thread- which made this book too “all over the place” for me to be focused to even finish it.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

However, that being said, I think if you like poetry, you will probably like this book. If you like to meditate, you will probably like this book. If you’re interested in learning more about traditions from various parts of the world, you might like this book. But for me, this was just not my cup of tea.
