Near the end of Thomas Keating’s life [d. October 25, 2018,) eight of his poems were collected and published under the title “The Secret Embrace”. In this retreat, we will be reading these poems with the guidance of Cynthia Bourgeault, from the virtual workshop Bourgeault led in May 2020. Familiarity with Thomas Keating’s basic teachings is essential for this retreat. The retreat will include periods of Centering Prayer each day, and lectio divina.
