Contemplative Prayer
Traditional Christian Meditations for Opening to Divine Union

Join Father Thomas Keating for three hours of wisdom on the practice of centering prayer.

Starting at: $13.10

Details

"The Cloud of Unknowing" is one of Christianity's enduring mysteries—a meditative state where God is experienced on the deepest interior level. On Contemplative Prayer, Father Thomas Keating introduces you to the uplifting system of Centering Prayer, a revival of the contemplations practiced in the cloisters and monasteries of Europe since medieval times.

This complete three-CD set covers: the contemplative path and true freedom; four steps to prayer; overcoming emotional programs; the psychology of prayer; the seven fruits of contemplative prayer; and much more.

Best out anywhere for introduction to the true goal of the Christian spiritual journey Review by Scotty

Rating

I have listened to this for perhaps decades ( or close to it ) as I sold was one of the first bookshops to sell Sounds True on the East Coast in the 1990s . Thomas Keating can open the eyes to those believing they know Christianity ( pro or con) and possibly open one to a whole new world of actual direct experience with a power MUCH greater than themselves. I highly recommend listening to it over and over . (Posted on July 22, 2015)

Highest quality spirituality and wisdom Review by Laura

Father Keating bases his teaching on the interpretation of Chistianism. This open-minded man is not austere, and can be funny. Essentially, I feel wrapped into intelligence and live when I eat his voice. (Posted on April 22, 2015)

I found this cd to be very affirming. Review by Jenny

My response is a deep whisper of "yes". Had been introduced to centering prayer in October 2014. After listening to this CD, I am convinced that this is what I have been looking for my entire life. At 66, this has been no small quest, and I have taken many detours. I am very grateful for this teaching and practice.

Sincerely, Jenny Pittman (Posted on April 6, 2015)
