Thomas Keating : The Ecumenical Monk

Thomas Keating and the Dalai Lama

‘Can you imagine a black and white-robed Catholic monk walking the red carpet at the Oscars? This almost happened.

There IS a film featuring this Catholic abbot: Thomas Keating, A Rising Tide of Silence. It qualified as an Oscar nominee and made the first cut of documentaries vying for the Oscar finals.’

“As a young man Keating transformed, becoming more ecumenical, more universal. He sees God in the Big Bang, in quantum physics, in Jungian psychology. He sees Eastern meditation as congruent with his Centering Prayer, both leading to union with the Divine. He wanted other Catholic monks to see the bigger picture, too.”
