Item Description...
Overview
Drawn from the experience of the monasteries of Sinai and Mount Athos, here is a clear and practical presentation of the spiritual art of arts: stillness in the face of interior pain and confusion.

Publishers Description
For more than fifteen hundred years, Christianity has cultivated a rich and varied teaching on the practice of stillness and inner calm. Here we can find answers to the contemporary psychological struggle for inner peace.

In a fresh and engaging reading of this ancient contemplative spirituality, Jean-Yves Leloup explores the writings of many spiritual masters from across the centuries. In particular he focuses on the Desert Fathers, the fourth-century monk Evagrius, St. John Cassian, and the anonymous 19th-century author of The Way of the Pilgrim. Drawn from the experience of the monasteries of Sinai and Mount Athos, here is a clear and practical presentation of the spiritual art of arts: stillness in the face of interior pain and confusion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A fabulous introduction to the Christian mystical tradition of hesychasm  Nov 27, 2005
This is a great book. I first became aware of it when I noticed that many of the Benedictine sisters at a local monastery were reading this book. Intrigued, I had to see what it was about. The book offers a magnificent introduction into the way of the Christian mystical tradition, offered through beautiful stories, information on the mystical forebearers on this path of contemplation, and contemporary knowledge. It is a book to come back to again and again, rich with wisdom and inspiration. The path of stillness is one we should all trod. There is nothing more enriching to our spiritual lives than for us to quiet down and listen to the voice of God within and without.
