Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer: A Film Screening and Conversation

October 20, 2011 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

A screening of Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer, a documentary film about the mystical prayer that has been in use since the Apostles, but remains largely unknown in the West. For the first time on film, desert hermits, monks and nuns reveal the simple prayer, bringing us into their private cells, caves and sanctuaries in the Middle East, Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, and Russia.

A conversation with the film’s director, Dr. Norris J. Chumley, bestselling author and Emmy-Award-winning executive producer/director. He is also a blogger for Huffington Post and a professor at New York University.
