Fr. Alexis Trader’s Ancient Christian Wisdom, toward the healing of our thoughts, our souls, and our bodies.

Fr. Alexis earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, a master’s degree in literature, and then discovered the Orthodox Christian faith. He entered the monastic life, attaining the Great Schema and becoming a priest. He is working on a doctorate at the University of Thessaloniki in Greece, “investigating the writings of the Church Fathers in Greek and Latin on the thoughts in contrast with Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy. “

The aim of his blog, as I understand it,  is to explore and relate to us the Orthodox Christian understanding of psychology in relation to academic psychology, for application in his and our life toward the healing of the whole person, toward likeness to Christ.

As mental disturbance is a disability and pain attends many disabilities,  here are two blog posts relating to these:

from Fr. Alexis Trader’s Ancient Christian Wisdom:

Thoughts, Feelings, and Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain and Setting the Right Kind of Goals

Acceptance as an Intervention for Chronic Pain 

And there are many more blog posts to explore , in five related categories: The Spiritual life, Prayer, Christian Hope, Cognitive Therapy, and Psychology.

If you struggle with thoughts, or know someone who does that you would like to help, I heartily recommend these writings.

The book: goodreads: Ancient Christian Wisdom and Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy: A Meeting of Minds
