Item description for Prayers and Meditations: Selections by Gerald Heard, Aldous Huxley, and Others (Gerald Heard Reprint) by Gerald Heard & Aldous Huxley...

These prayers and meditations are traces of an experiment, writes Gerald Heard in his Introduction to Prayers and Meditations. Seven were written by one of our ablest authors. That experiment was Trabuco College, which Heard founded in California in 1941. The ablest author was Aldous Huxley, Heard's sometime co-adventurer in mystical voyages.

Along with Huxley's seven contributions are selections by St. Albert, St. Anselm, Dionysius the Areopagite, William H. Forthman, and Margaret Gage. Heard penned all the others. Altogether these powerful reflections, are present-day renderings of those thoughts and feelings which have been rising in men since they began to reach out to Him who is beyond the senses. Prayers and Meditations equips the contemporary spiritual aspirant with a wellspring of inspirational devotions, ever invoking, the desire to remember constantly the all-pervading, transcendent Presence of God.

More About Gerald Heard & Aldous Huxley

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Gerald Heard was a well-known British polymath in the second quarter of the 20th century. He began his career as science commentator for the BBC, and H. G. Wells was widely quoted as saying that he was the only one he bothered to listen to on the wireless. From there he went on to write the most successful detective story of the day, A Taste for Honey, which sold over half a million copies, an astronomical number in those days. Thirty more books followed including Pain, Sex and Time, The Ascent of Humanity, and The Social Substance of Religion.

Gerald Heard was born in 1889 and died in 1971.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prayers and Meditations: Selections by Gerald Heard, Aldous Huxley, and Others (Gerald Heard Reprint)?

Here are several brief reviews of PRAYERS AND MEDITATIONS:

Marvin Barrett from his Preface to the 2008 edition
"Upon my rediscovery of this lode of spiritual aspirations forty years later they seemed as potent and apt as they had when I first made their acquaintance."

Thomas Sugrue
"This quiet book is an event in publishing - prayers for intelligent laymen written by intelligent laymen. The spiritual person will find it as useful as a third hand. Some of the meditations are magnificent."

Christian Advocate
"Here is a book of almost white-hot spiritual intensity. The meditations are splendid - always suggestive and often breath-taking in their spiritual insight."

Glenn Clark
"Prayers and Meditations belongs to the perfect classics of the spirit, along with Practicing the Presence of God, Testament of Devotion, and The Greatest Thing in the World. It will carry the sincere seeker right into the Secret Place of the Most High."

John Oliver Nelson
"The exquisite line, the luminous theological thinking behind it all, the evident intensity of spirit - all place us again in the editor's debt. It can freshen prayer life for almost anyone."

Dr. (Hon.) Rhea A. White
"This slim but highly meaningful book consists of a number of prayers and meditations by Gerald Heard and others on key topics involving the human spirit. By immersing oneself in the readings contained in Prayers and Meditations, one will be tangibly moved in the deepest recesses of their being."
