I was wondering if any of you have heard of the book called "Orthodox Psychotherapy".
I can't remember the name of the author because I left the book at work, but it is a pretty deep piece of work, but well worth the read. It is written by an Orthodox priest who compares us in Orthodoxy to patients in a hospital. We are sick people needing a cure, and being cured.
Orthodoxy is not simply a religion, but it is truley life!! We are in the process of being cured, according to the book, but some of the terminology and concepts are hard to understand.
He focouses on three points of salvation, so far. first is purification, the second is illumination, the third is deification.
He also talks a lot about the "nous". I am having a hard time understanding this concept. Do any of you have a way of explaining the "nous" to a dumb guy like me??
