Stillness in the West
On the art and practice of radical contemplation, late in the Anthropocene. Joy and beauty are still possible.
“Jack is a piercingly articulate writer, and humbly shares his spiritual journey as well as highlights many of the tensions of trying to follow the Way of Christ in our age.”
Mark Kutolowski, Metanoia of Vermont Reflections
“This is from a friend of mine who has joyfully fled the world to live in a hermitage at a Benedictine monastery. I have always appreciated Jack's insight, and now more than ever we could use more voices crying out in the wilderness, so to speak.”
Christopher Whittington, On Love and Longing
“Beautifully rendered critique of our collective predicament. This writer has an expanded vision of human struggle.”
