Re-printed many times since it was first published, and translated into numerous languages, this book by Metropolitan Kallistos Ware of Diokleia, is an invaluable guide at every stage of spiritual pilgrimage. It is a classic exposition of the Jesus Prayer and its use in the Hesychast Orthodox tradition of the prayer of stillness, and the author shows how anyone who prays can apply this teaching to themselves.

Due to the severe ice storms of February 11th & 15th, the monastery has been without power, phones and internet for a prolonged period of time. This will likely continue for the indefinite future due to the severe damage from the storm throughout the entire region.
We are working to fulfill orders placed via our online store as quickly as we are able, however the process is very slow since we need to drive hours to town to download the orders, return to the monastery to print them off and package them, and then drive back into town to ship them since no mail or shipping services are able to reach us. We appreciate everyone's patience as we are doing our best to run our business during these circumstances.
Please pray for us!
