Metanoia (Greek μετάνοια) means a "change of heart," or, more literally, "after perception," tying it closely to the idea of repentance.

Metanoia is also another name for a prostration, with the idea that the physical movement of prostration is an indication of an internal reorientation to follow Christ.

"[Metanoia] involves, that is, not mere regret of past evil but a recognition by man of a dar­kened vision of his own condition, in which sin, by sepa­rating him from God, has reduced him to a divided, auto­nomous existence, depriving him of both his natural glory and freedom."[1]
