About the author
Judith Halbreich writes a ground-breaking and compelling story about her mother, Mary, and the arduous journey towards transformation and illumination.
Judith intimately witnessed the trials and tribulations of a penniless catholic divorcee who initially lost faith but then redefined old-time Western and Eastern spiritually to develop new strengths and tells this story. Her mother, Mary, taught her techniques of acceptance and overcoming pain to thousands of her disciples.
“I am so grateful to Judith Halbreich for animating her mother’s rich contemplative life, inspired teaching, and vibrant humanity. The Mary here is not a one-dimensional saint, but a vibrant radiating outbreath of the Spirit, dancing in compassion and wisdom and human foibles. This book is an essential read for any Centering Prayer student.”
– David F.
