The illness and cure of the soul in the Orthodox tradition

The illness and cure of the soul in the Orthodox tradition
The book records actual discussions between the author and a group of Christians examining fundamental issues of the spiritual life. The author’s responses make clear that he regards the basic prerequisites for being cured of passions as awareness of being ill and the search for healing and for someone who can help. He writes about the three stages of the spiritual life (purification of the heart, illumination of the nous and deification), the three categories of Christians (those who have not been cured, those being cured and those who have been cured), and the two kinds of baptism (baptism in water and baptism in the Spirit). Other subjects touched upon include the emotions, fantasy and imagination, thoughts, the difference between spiritual fathers and psychologists, Orthodox monasticism and the knowledge of God. In many respects this book presents in a simpler and briefer way the issues covered by Orthodox Psychotherapy and is particularly useful as an introduction to this subject.
