Thomas Keating: A Rising Tide of Silence
FilmFest 2013 - Presented by Aspen Film
Photographer and author Peter C. Jones makes a noteworthy debut with his reflective portrait of Father Thomas Keating, one of today’s most influential living spiritual leaders. Interweaving historical footage, biographical documentation, interviews with friends and colleagues, and extensive conversations with Father Keating himself, the film traces a fascinating personal and spiritual life. Born to a well-connected, prosperous New York family, at 21 he chose to enter the austere Trappist monastic life in New England and Old Snowmass. As founder of Contemplative Outreach and a chief architect, teacher and leading proponent of Centering Prayer, a contemplative spiritual practice, Father Keating has authored over 30 books including Open Mind, Open Heart. Widely recognized and respected for his all-embracing approach to spirituality, he works with leaders of all traditions, embracing Judeo-Christian, Buddhist, Islamic and other faiths. Father Keating’s transformation from rigorous monk to spiritual leader is a moving modern journey of faith. (USA, 2013, 75 min.)
