…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.
        “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

2. BOOK - "Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer" by Norris J. Chumley, Ph.D.

BOOK (in-depth companion to the film and Study Guide)  Ordering from our webstore helps us.
For nearly two millennia, the holy men and women of Eastern Christianity have built lives of reflection, humility, and constant connection to God around a simple sentence, the Jesus Prayer. Now you can use the Jesus Prayer to deepen your own practices and spiritual beliefs.
Dr. Norris J. Chumley—a documentarian and professor—reveals the history, practices, and abiding wisdom of this mystical tradition to the rest of the world.  Chumley traveled to some of the early Church’s holiest sites with the Very Reverend Dr. John A. McGuckin, a priest and professor—to St. Anthony’s Monastery in the Egyptian desert and St. Catherine’s Monastery on Mount Sinai, to convents in Transylvania and to monasteries in Russia, the Ukraine, and Greece—in search of Christianity’s first mystical tradition and its modern-day practitioners.

The monks and nuns he met taught him how to move through the stages of the Jesus Prayer, and how it can foster an unceasing, and ever deepening, conversation with God.

Enriched with stunning color photographs of these holy sites, where photography is rarely allowed, Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer reveals the powerful theology packed into this prayer’s few words.

“The Jesus Prayer can be used by everyone . . . When prayer culminates in silence, we awaken to new awareness. Then, prayer becomes a way of noticing more clearly and responding more effectively to the world within us and around us.”
—Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, Archbishop of Constantinople and New Rome, from the Foreword

“The famous Jesus Prayer has helped believers move closer to God for centuries. Chumley’s entirely fascinating new book takes us on a spiritual journey that explores the origins of this rich mystical tradition. Prayer does not need to be complicated for us to communicate with God.”
—James Martin , SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything

“This isn’t just a book about prayer. It is a full-on plunge into a prayer-filled adventure. Chumley takes you on a pilgrimage to some of the most enchanted places, and all you have to take with you is a one-line prayer that has been changing the world for centuries. Dive in.”
—Shane Claiborne, author, speaker, activist, and co-compiler of Common Prayer

“Led by twelve words of an ancient prayer, Chumley traverses a spiritual landscape unfamiliar to most westerners where he discovers a way of peace open to those who seek a deeper connection with God. Take this book and read. Even better, read this book and accept its invitation to pray.”
—Diana Butler Bass, author of A People’s History of Christianity
