Introduction to The Revised Vision of Contemplative Outreach by Fr. Thomas Keating - Last year as our leadership team began work on its manner of functioning as servant leaders of Contemplative Outreach, it seemed like a good time to update the Theological and Administrative Principles that have been in place since 2008.

God Is Love – The Heart of All Creation

God is Love: The Heart of All Creation Series continues and builds on the works of Thomas Keating over the past 30+ years, beginning with the Spiritual Journey series. It offers a vision of hope and a view of reality that at once integrates the sciences, religion and humankind’s place in the cosmos as divine in origin, unifying in purpose, unfolding in its grandeur.

Embracing Living: The Welcoming Prayer

Learn, deepen or renew your practice of this practical and profound prayer with this online retreat. The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. If Centering Prayer is practiced for one hour of the day, the Welcoming Prayer is for the other 23 hours. It is a "letting go" in the present moment, in the midst of the activity of ordinary life.
