Father Thomas Keating reflects on the wisdom and legacy of Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step Method and its connection to, and similarities with, the Christian mystical traditions of centering prayer. In conversation with a long-time member of AA meetings, Father Thomas talks insightfully about surrendering to one’s High Power and the journey that must be undertaken for the healing of the soul to begin.  Using the book, Divine Therapy & Addiction: Centering Prayer and the Twelve Steps (Lantern Books, 2009), The gathering will include Introduction to Centering Prayer with 20 minutes silent practice, discussion from the book and short video segments from The Contemplative Dimension of the 12 Steps with Fr. Thomas Keating.  It is not necessary to purchase the book to participate
