The Healing Path of Prayer: A Modern Mystic's Guide to Spiritual Power
ISBN: 0609802267

Harmony. 1998

Prayer is the key to tapping into the healing energy of the Divine. Yet for many people, prayer has been reduced to a rote practice that has lost its basic meaning and efficacy.

In his long-awaited book for an ecumenical readership, internationally renowned spiritual healer Ron Roth teaches his unique approach to prayer as energy medicine. The Healing Path of Prayer explains in detail the connection between healing, faith, and prayer. Roth shows you how to find your own path to prayer in a way that connects with God's healing energy. As Roth explains, you can use this energy for physical healing, and perhaps more significantly, for healing emotional and spiritual wounds that may be the root of physical maladies.

The Healing Path of Prayer offers specific guidance in setting up a daily prayer practice that is rewarding and meaningful. Through a series of simple but effective exercises and rituals, Roth shows you how to celebrate your own sacraments and become a mystic in the course of your everyday life. As Roth revitalizes many tired, traditional prayers with his fresh and inspiring reinterpretations from original scripture, he also recounts the dramatic story of when he discovered his healing abilities, as well as true case studies of healing in which he has participated.

The Healing Path of Prayer is a blueprint for a truly democratic spirituality. Each chapter offers a new, higher level of prayer, enabling you to acquire more advanced techniques of focus, intention, and insight. Roth's instruction on how to pray and establish a daily practice of meditation will lead you into a vital path of everyday mysticism and personal power.

The Sacred Light of Healing: Teachings and Meditations on Divine Oneness
ISBN: 0595448968

iUniverse, Inc.. 2007

Few American spiritual teachers of recent years have inspired others as lovingly as Ron Roth. After serving the Roman Catholic Church as a priest for twenty-five years, Roth left to pursue a more universal spirituality, teaching the possibility of a one-to-one relationship with Divinity as well as the belief that healing and enlightenment are available to all people. Speaking from the cornerstone teachings that have inspired his ministry, Roth journals his reflections on his personal realizations in The Sacred Light of Healing. He reflects on the Holy Spirit, the original teachings of Jesus, and the inner way of the ancient monks known as the Therapeutae. Roth also discusses his late-life journey to India and an awakening to his own work for global peace. As related to and written by Roger Montgomery, this first-person account is Roth's moving true story of how we all can move into a closer relationship of Oneness with God.
