Author, speaker, and publisher Gray Henry delivered a talk titled St. Seraphim in Sufic Perspective. Although her topic allowed her to range between various points of unanimity between Eastern Orthodox and Sufic thought, the clip we have chosen strongly suggests that it is when the Hesychast or Sufi are in the vast, formless and liberating space of "the heart" that they are most similar—that is, when each is before, but most importantly in God, regardless of how those two paths may have led to that space. Henry also highlights in the clip the central importance of quietude and God's Presence in both spiritual paths.The audio clip of Gray Henry's talk is 9 min. 50 sec. long.
