There have been other threads on this board dealing with Thomas Keating (the “centering prayer” guy, not to be confused with another author with the same last name). What I know of his ideas is that they are OK - but just barely. It wouldn’t take much for him to be categorized as a fringe kook, and his writings are often used (or mis-used) by fringe kooks, as they are easily adapted to kookiness.

But this is what I’ve heard from others. I haven’t read his stuff myself.

Keating’s web site has the whole book online at:

contemplativeoutreach.org/kingdom/index.htm

I read his newsletters, but I haven’t read much in his books. I have listened to many hours of his tapes on various subjects from the spiritual journey to Mary. I think I have a decent feel for what he says, but I haven’t been keeping up with him anymore except I still get a lot of jokes through email from our local CO rep. :stuck_out_tongue:
