Holy Hesychia: The Stillness That Knows God: In Defence of the Holy Hesychasts
This great work of St Gregory Palamas is an exposition of a spiritual tradition that has been practised, tried and tested for over 1600 years. Palamas describes the difference between worldly and spiritual knowledge, the nature of illumination and how the action of the divine may be encountered within us.
The Palamas text was originally published in 2002 as 'The Triads: Book One'. This edition is a substantially revised translation of the original text and features an additional Commentary by the author Robin Amis, who also presents hesychasm to a modern audience and shows how we can all benefit from this ancient tradition that leads to 'the stillness that knows God'.
