Being Still : Reflections on an Ancient Mystical Tradition, Paperback Book

Being Still : Reflections on an Ancient Mystical Tradition Paperback



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.
