Author: Thomas Keating
A must-have book from Thomas Keating for Centering Prayer. The fundamental purpose of centering prayer and Contemplative Outreach, the spiritual network that supports it, is to contribute to bringing the knowledge and experience of God's love into the general consciousness of the human family.
Contemplative prayer is process of interior transformation, a conversion initiated by God and leading, if we consent, to divine union. One's way of seeing reality changes in this process. A restructuring of consciousness takes place which empowers one to perceive, relate, and respond to everyday life with increasing sensitivity to the divine presence in, through, and beyond everything that happens.
