We will investigate the chaos that is part of human experience from the very beginning, but which has the possibility of being used creatively in a manner that transforms. A truly contemplative spirituality will have to deal with that, regardless whether one is a monk or a lay person. Biblical themes, patristic wisdom and iconography will be used to explore the topic, with an introduction to formal practices that help provide a practical understanding of unceasing prayer.
