METANOIA

MEH-tah-NOY-a — (n.) The journey of changing one's heart, mind, self, or way of life.


Deriving from the Greek metanoein meaning 'to change one's mind.' First known use was in 1577 AD and refers to the changing of one's entire being and way of life - a spiritual journey of the heart and mind, a journey of transformation and redefinition. In psychology, metanoia is the 'breakdown' and subsequent healing or recovery through positive psychological rebuilding.
