If you read a lot of books in a specific category over time you run across the names of certain books by certain authors regularly. Jean-Yves Leloup’s Being Still is a case in point. I’ve been seeing this name referenced in many books I’ve read over the last few years. Finally, I was able to purchase it! I’m not finished reading it yet, but I wanted to go ahead and share it with you because it fits with our topic of Stillness this week.

Being Still by Jean-Yves Leloup is rich with church history, monastic tradition and truths that apply the contemplative path to our hurried lives today. This isn’t a fast read. Rather it’s one you will want to take slowly and soak in. Though it isn’t designed to be a devotional, I am using it in that way. If you are at all interested in monastic ways, I highly recommend Being Still: Reflections on an Ancient Mystical Tradition by Jean-Yves Leloup.
