For decades, Father Thomas Keating, together with other monks of St. Joseph's Abbey in Spence, Massacusetts, examined this great question: could anyone enter the "cloud of unknowing" through a prayer practice specifically created to attain it?

He synthesized his works into a "Centering Prayer" method that has helped thousands of seekers travel the path from woundedness to transformation.
