Publisher's Summary

"The Cloud of Unknowing" is one of Christianity's enduring mysteries, a meditative state where God is experienced on the deepest interior level. To move beyond thoughts and feelings and into the arms of the divine spirit, we have been given the gift of contemplative prayer. In Contemplative Prayer, Father Thomas Keating introduces you to this method for inviting the grace of God into your life, to discover the treasure of holiness always present in ordinary events. Join Father Keating as he teaches a complete workshop on this system of Christian meditation, as it has been practiced in the cloisters and monasteries of Europe since medieval times. Contemplative prayer, like a freshening wind, is an uplifting event that can help take you to the starting point of the true spiritual journey.

A new world of prayer

I started using Lectio Divina several months ago and have found a new and exciting committment to pray. As many who strugle with prayer, Lectio and this book on contemplation is a must for those looking to be active in prayer or to jump start your current prayer life.I always spent time in a monologue with we have a dialogue.It is very comforting to rest in the silence of the King.
