Professor Markides shares his experiences with the extraordinary world of the sages and miracle workers he has encountered in his lifelong quest. He shows us a clearly identifiable and experiential mystical path within Christianity that has been practiced for hundreds of years not only in ancient monasteries and convents but also among lay people living in the modern world. Topics include the way to know God; the spiritual laws that govern human existence; the destiny of the human soul; the different stages one must go through to attain union with God; and the power of thought, including inner prayer and contemplation for healing self and others.
