Early Church Spirituality of the Heart: Part 1
7.15.12 (MP4 Webinar Recording: 1 hr 50 min, 18 MB download)
Author Robin Amis draws from his recent book Kardia: A Christian Psychology, the fruit of nearly 60 visits to the monasteries of Mount Athos, Greece, where monks put into daily practice the centuries-old teachings of the early Church Fathers. This webinar series, first, delves into St. Paul’s two kinds of knowledge, which allow one to observe interior elements of the psyche; secondly, the Prayer of the Heart, the awakening of kardia (the spiritual heart), the struggle of distraction, and the role of nous; and, in the final webinar, psychological methods of the early Church, including the two forms (linear and circular) of gaining control of attention.
