Thomas Keating - 1980

Page updated 5/5/20


Fr. Thomas Keating was a founding member and the spiritual guide of Contemplative Outreach.  Fr. Keating was one of the principal architects and teachers of the Christian contemplative prayer movement and, in many ways, Contemplative Outreach is a manifestation of his longtime desire to contribute to the recovery of the contemplative dimension of Christianity.

We were fortunate to participate in retreats and workshops with Fr. Thomas. He introduced me and my family to the practice of centering prayer meditation in August 2004 during a weekend retreat with him at Wisdom House in Litchfield, CT. Our son John was probably in the 8th grade and already practicing sitting at a master's feet.
