It is also an important secular practice, often for a political or social cause such as peace, justice, or to alleviate hunger. Now this helpful guide has everything you need to make this practice your own. Here you'll find perspectives that cross time and tradition, plus practical help, with historical information, inspiring personal stories, and plenty of encouragement.--From publisher description.
