Wrapping up our spiritual practices from Dionysios, we now venture into apophatic terms, that is describing something by what it is not.  To emphasize what you’ll here in the audio, the first step is to find terms that you definitely know God is not, like evil, etc.  The next step in apophatic theology is start denying the very terms you used in cataphatic practices.  The final step, which we do not cover here is to then deny the denial.  But as that is a step for the more adept contemplatives, I’ll just leave you with that hint.  I look forward to hearing your responses!  God’s Peace.
