I can't begin to say how beautiful this movie is, so I will just share some links:

Website [mysteriesofthejesusprayer.com]

Article [pravoslavie.ru]

I got it on iTunes [itunes.apple.com] (this link will open up iTunes if you have it.)

From the article:

"In their new film (and its soon-to-be-released book by the same title), Father John and Dr. Chumley offer an intimate insight into an answer, the ancient and efficacious practice of noetic prayer, the prayer of the heart, the Jesus prayer.

These prayer-seeking travelers take us with them as they retrace the journeys of early and modern saints whose love of God has drawn them and countless others into the stillness, the inner quiet that avails a profound sense of God's utter and absolute nearness. These two men serve concurrently as our guides and as our fellow pilgrims journeying from the first monastic enclaves of Egypt, to the Holy Mountain of Greece, the forests of Romania and of the Ukraine, and finally to the majestic churches of Russia.

At every stop along the way, the pilgrim is offered unusually intimate insights into the lives of those who have been called to lives of prayer. At each successive stop, one increasingly comes to apprehend that this calling is not only for monks and nuns, but is a vocation to which each of us has been likewise called. As one articulate amma puts it, "It is for everyone. Why not?""

I received my copies of the DVD, book and study guide over a week ago. The DVD I've watched a few times already. Truly a movie to see! The book I read in a couple of days. A good read for sure! I will now go back to reread the book to take notes for study and meditation on. I highly recommend both the book and the movie to all that pray the Jesus Prayer. Indeed, check out the website. You can either purchase the DVD or pay for a download.

Wishing everyone a prayerful Holy Week

Just saw this film on NJTV. I also think it is excellent and ordered the DVD and book which was available on the NOOK.
