I'm reading the Artscroll biography Reb Elyah. It mentions that he completed a six year Teshuva process known as Hakanah, which includes almost constant fasting and other acts out of love for Hashem, as well as a year long Taanis Dibbur, a fast from speech. I want to know if there are any more details I can find about Hakanah, as well as the sources behind it.
