…earnest, understated and profoundly respectful…the value of silence as a path to inner peace… –The New York Times

Leave your busy, stressful world for a moment to discover the ancient and powerful Jesus Prayer. Known by generations of eastern Christians, this mystical prayer has been in use since the Apostles, but remains largely unknown in the west. For the first time on film, desert hermits, monks and nuns reveal the simple prayer, bringing us into their private cells, caves and sanctuaries in the Middle East, Mediterranean, Eastern Europe and Russia. Narrated by Dr. Norris J. Chumley and Rev. Dr. John McGuckin.
 
COMMENTS:
        “DVD is awesome – a must see! Beautiful footage of various Orthodox monasteries in Europe! The monastics share how they use the Jesus Prayer and its importance to them.” –  Presvytera “Prez”
        “I love this movie! I’ve seen it 4 times. It never gets old for me. Every time I watch it, it brings peace to my soul, and I learn something I didn’t before. I love the scenery in it, and it makes me want to go to all those places! I highly recommend this video. It really was excellent.” — Dot
        “Norris Chumley’s book is well worth the read for the practical information and surprising insights he has gained in his travels. He has much to say that is vital to our times, most importantly, about how the Jesus Prayer can aid what appears to be wide spread isolation in our world today. It seems that most of us are living solitary lives, whether we have chosen the monastic life or not… Chumley’s writing has a way of recreating the feeling of being in the desert and visiting the monasteries. Open up this book, and you are in the silent spaciousness of sacred time and space. Reading this book is a healing experience with practical ideas for creating solitude out of the loneliness of the urban canyon of the wide open empty spaces of modern life.” — Seminarian
