The practice of centering prayer is the beginning of a process of spiritual growth. Outlines and explains the actual stages of this process. "This is an attempt to provide a road map, as it were, for the journey that begins when Centering Prayer is seriously undertaken, and to point to some of the recognizable landmarks on the journey as well as to its ultimate destination...The regular practice of contemplative prayer initiates a healing process that might be called "the divine therapy"...The gift of contemplative prayer is a practical and essential tool for confronting the heart of Christian discipline...while at the same time establishing the climate and necessary dispositions for a deepening relationship to God and leading, if we persevere, to divine union.

Crisis of faith, crisis of love by Thomas Keating( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Christian contemplative tradition has its roots in the Gospel, and it is here that the spiritual journey we all share is first elaborated by Jesus himself. The richness of this tradition comes from the insights and example of those who through the centuries have lived in accordance with the guidance first presented in the Gospels. The process of Christian transformation presented here as the crisis of faith and the crisis of love is based on later mystical writers, especially John of the Cross, as the dark night of soul and spirit. The interpretation of Scriptural texts is inexhaustible, and the spiritual sense of Scripture elaborated by the Fathers and Mothers of the Church has been used again and again to illustrate insights useful to the various stages of spiritual development. This rich storytelling tradition can be used to trace a Gospel map of the spiritual journey, showing the progress of transformation that is outlined there, once our capacity to listen to the Word of God has been sharpened by the habit of contemplative prayer

The process whereby this happens is the foundation of centering prayer--a technique of prayer that Keating and other conte

The brief introductory prayer sentences are from various sources - the Bible and traditional prayers of the church or of well-known spiritual writers. The spiritual readings come from eleven of Father Keatings books and one audiotape, with a month's worth of readings derived from each work. Each day's entry concludes with a brief selection from the Bible, or Lectio Divina
