Hugh and Gayle Prather

Hugh and Gayle Prather are spiritually-oriented counselors and well-known writers in the fields of relationships and personal growth.  Hugh Prather became well-known for his 1970s book of meditations, Notes to Myself (review or buy).  During the past twenty years, Hugh and Gayle Prather have written about their personal experiences with A Course in Miracles, their counseling practice, and their own experience as a couple and a family.

I Will Never Leave You

In I Will Never Leave You (review or buy), Hugh and Gayle Prather demonstrate the enormous gains that can come from staying with one's partner, rather than leaving.  The book teaches how to trust one's choices, believe in the peace of one's heart, and keep commitments.  The result, which follows from these steps, is an experience of peace and oneness with another.

Spiritual Parenting

Spiritual Parenting (review or buy) is a guide to seeing and nurturing the naturally intuitive and spiritual core of every child.  As Hugh and Gayle Prather write, "we should consider ourselves more like a Sherpa guide than a trainer or commanding officer" when raising children. Discipline is important, say the Prathers; however, discipline should be seen as strength and commitment, not punishment for wrong actions.
