Best Centering Prayer Information available

This book has filled so much open space in my knowledge of Centering Prayer. Having met Father Keating in 1987 and having read his fascinating informative and inspiring books as well as practiced Centering Prayer ever since. This new look at the topic is like fresh air in its different approach! It is written so lovingly and with such depth of understanding and background on this source of Contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition, I feel nourished by all the hitherto unknown information. The exact method is discribed for beginners and those familiar to this ancient prayer form.
I have recommended this reading [ and now the hard copy book ] to my entire group of friends both Christian and non Christian.
There are really no words for the spiritual value of Basil Pennington's work.
Thank you for this opportunity

A Guide for Centering Prayer

Excellent practical instruction in meditation, prayer and centering techniques. Christian in focus but Eastern in flavor. A wonderful guide.
