Though fasting is practiced in some form by nearly every faith tradition throughout the world, it is often seen as scary or something only for monastic life. But fasting doesn't have to be intimidating. And it doesn't have to mean going weeks without food. "The Sacred Art of Fasting" invites you to explore the practical approaches, spiritual motivations and physical benefits of this ancient practice by looking at the ways it is observed in several faith traditions. Inspiring personal reflections, helpful advice and encouragement from people who practice fasting, answer your questions, allay your fears and reveal how you, too, can safely incorporate fasting into your spiritual life. This is the third title in the "Preparing to Practice" series of books, which explain little known or misunderstood spiritual practices from around the world. Each has clear instructions on how you can bring these practices into your life.
