In your Light,
I see only Light.
- Psalm 36
In the back of Thomas Keating's seminal book, Open Mind, Open Heart, published in 1986, he lists 42 guidelines which he described as a "tentative effort to restate the Christian spiritual journey in contemporary terms [and] provide a conceptual background for the practice of Centering Prayer." He also advised that they be read in the manner of Lectio Divina – in other words, not as information, but as prayer for revelation and inspiration from the Holy Spirit, and as a call to embodiment in daily life. Twenty-four years later, much evolved in the thinking and teaching of Thomas Keating and in the lived experience of the worldwide Centering Prayer community. The intention of this course is to ponder and pray these guidelines together from a contemporary perspective. Read more and register here with our partner, Spirituality & Practice.
