A Deeper Love

A Deeper Love

by Elizabeth Smith and Joseph Chalmers

This brief but illuminating introduction to Centering Prayer is based on the teachings and writings of Thomas Keating.  In the foreword, Fr. Keating writes, "Elizabeth Smith, director of Contemplative Outreach UK, and the Most Reverend Joseph Chalmers, O. Carm, Prior General of the Carmelite Order, have collaborated in providing an excellent summary of the conceptual background of Centering Prayer and the Christian contemplative journey as found in my three books, Open Mind, Open Heart, The Mystery of Christ and Invitation to Love. The instruction and guidance contained in these pages are the necessary follow-up to the Inroductory Workshop in Centering Prayer.  Especially in areas where the above-mentioned trilogy is hard to obtain, readers can find here a synthesis that has been painstakingly and accurately crafted and which includes all the essential information in a single book.  I am deeply grateful to the authors."
