Conversations with Remarkable People: Father Thomas Keating (1999)

Episode 1
Available worldwide

What is it like to be in continuous communion with God? Father Thomas Keating invites each of us to begin our own essential conversation with faith. A lecturer, author, and deeply spiritual elder, Father Thomas engages Chantal Westerman in a powerfully authentic conversation about prayer, humility, meditation, and the gift of faith.

For more than half a century, this Trappist monk has followed a path of humility, service, and contemplative prayer in a life devoted to understanding and communing with God. At the sacred pastoral setting of St. Benedict’s monastery in Snowmass, Colorado, he lives for the most part in communal silence with the monks, cultivating the inner and outer silence that allows one to develop an intimate relationship with God.

By example, Father Keating's deep realization awakens us to listen to the spiritual relationship already present in our unique lives and to extend our compassion to the world. Enjoy this chance to meet one of the most well respected and remarkable of spiritual explorers.

What a great conversation with a beautiful soul. Father Thomas Keating does a wonderful job explaining some really complex thoughts in a very simple and approachable way by focusing on the truth of God.

I am just getting to know this concept of Centering or Contemplative prayer although I have been meditating for a year or so. This conversation/interview clarified some questions I had so I feel more comfortable pursuing it further. It is very different to sit in silence to know God rather than the familiar petitioning prayer with which many of are familiar.

An excellent conversation with a leader of contemplative practice.
