The Hesychast Medicine

The Hesychast Medicine

The Hesychast medicine calls for a particular remembrance of the image of man – “image of creation” and “image of Creator,” in unamalgamated union, participation and communion – and reveals an authentically integrative, iconic, meaning of man’s health (as well, but not only), stating unequivocally that medicine cannot acquire an integral and integrative vision, genuinely and thoroughly holistic, except through the recovery of the image-person, both the one pertaining to God and that of man.
Thus, we discover a personal sort of medicine, of (Carpathian) Philokalic opening and orientation, a Hesychast medicine thus, which implies the awakening of the person’s integral conscience, the recalling – re-memoration of the (arch-) image of person, the engraving, penetration and activation of this memory of person into one’s soul and (then) into one’s body; health is assumed in iconic fashion through constant reference to the Image-Origin and searched, discovered, constantly acquired, (re)gained, as dynamic balance, through the image of the integral (integrative) positioning of the person within the participative context of the intertwinement and interposition of the Plenary-Integral Reality (Creator and creation).

Carpathian Patericon

Carpathian Patericon

The volume Carpathian Patericon evokes an exceptional spiritual personality from the end of the 20th century. (…) Through the present book, we are in the presence of a man of direct experience, a man embodying the eloquence and the fine reasonable argument of the possibility of an authentic, unmistakable and unamalgamated encounter with God, here and now, an encounter enabled firts and foremost from the very image of this man’s presence. We can discover within the pages of the Carpathian Patericon, captured from diverse perspectives belonging to the people who met him “face to face” or indirectly, through his writings, the image of a Hesychast mystic, profound theologian and subtle mistagogue, revealed as gifted teacher of the practice and experience of the “ceaseless prayer”, in the specific Orthodox Hesychast tradition (…) a contemporary spiritual father, Avva Ghelasie from Frăsinei (1944-2003).
