Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O.

Father Thomas Keating draws from over sixty years of study and prayer as a Trappist monk in sharing the wisdom of twenty centuries of the contemplative Christian tradition. One of the principal architects of the contemplative Christian prayer movement, Father Keating co-founded the Snowmass Interreligious Conference and Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., and is author of many books, including Open Mind, Open Heart; The Human Condition: Contemplation and Transformation; and Intimacy with God: An Introduction to Centering Prayer.

Fr. Keating attended Yale University and Fordham University before entering the Order of Cistercians of Strict Observance in January of 1944. He was appointed Superior of St. Benedict’s Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado, and was later elected abbot of St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts.
