Item Description...
"The Cloud of Unknowing" is one of Christianity's enduring mysteries-a meditative state where God is experienced on the deepest interior level. On Contemplative Prayer, Father Thomas Keating introduces you to the uplifting system of Centering Prayer, a revival of the contemplations practiced in the cloisters and monasteries of Europe since medieval times. This complete three-CD session covers: the contemplative path and true freedom; four steps to prayer; overcoming emotional programs; the psychology of prayer; the seven fruits of contemplative prayer; and much more.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too much talk, not enough contemplation.  Apr 26, 2008
I read the other reviews and knew that there was a lot of talk, but truly there was almost no guided meditation whatsoever. Maybe five minutes worth. The rest was talking about Contemplative Prayer and the benefits of it, but there was almost no actual meditative content. Very disappointing.
Different strokes  Jan 16, 2006
I really enjoyed this CD. I especially liked Father Keating's explanations on contemplative prayer and I also enjoyed the guided prayer sessions. Like other reviewers I found that some of the psychological explanations were at times tedious and off the mark but the basic notions that change is difficult due to developmental experiences and related defense mechanisms made sense and I would have no problem recommending this CD to many of my clients. However, there would be a few caveats. Mostly, I would encourage them to listen to the entire CD but to have patience and wait for the last few sessions. Personally, I have worked at incorporating centered prayer in my life by practicing it a half an hour a day and have found that it does help change your emotional reactivity to the events of daily living in a positive manner. Interestingly, my wife did not like the CD at all. She found it tedious and somewhat impractical. It just goes to show how two people can go through the same experience and come out with different conclusions!
Kind of rambles   Dec 8, 2005
I liked the discussion of contemplative prayer techniques. However, I could have gone without the child psychology lecture that takes up the first 2 out of 3 CD's.
Excellent!! Opened the door to a hidden room in my life!  Aug 31, 2005
This is an excellent audio presentation by a very gifted Cistercian monk who is well versed in the Scriptures and the Christian contemplative traditions.

It has helped me discover the presence of God - hidden, waiting, healing - but above all else a relationship with divine uncreated love overflowing. Surely that is better than mere calm and a relaxed state of mind!!
Protestants meditate, too.  Mar 23, 2002
I found this audiobook very helpful. I think it offered a good guide for the newly contemplative, as well as those who have been pondering God and the universe for a long time. I have drawn on its wisdom often since 9/11, also.

Bruce, as a recovering Catholic, I can tell you that Christians of denominations OTHER THAN CATHOLIC do meditate- even Episcopal heathens like me. =) Maybe you can find some Protestants and actually ask them about this. We're not hard to track down. (And it's actually the Catholic church that has detailed guidelines regarding posession & exorcisms).
