‘Learn to be at peace, and thousands around you will find salvation.’ Drawing the title from these words of Saint Seraphim of Sarov, Andrew Norman has a simple yet urgent message: learn the practice of stillness and develop a contemplative awareness in all things. He wrote these reflections during convalescence from a brain haemorrhage, drawing on the tradition of prayer through the centuries. If we cultivate a disciplined life of prayer, this will shape us and give us strength in difficult times.
