Being Still: Reflections on an Ancient Mystical Tradition by Jean-Yves Leloup
  • Description
  • Reviews

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. This book—demonstrates that peace in the world begins with peace in the heart—and is gracefully written for everyday readers.
