Keating discusses the principles of contemplative prayer?the retreat into the ?inner room? mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 6:6. In the inner room, God acts as a divine therapist, healing us and forcing us to recognize how many barriers we put up between ourselves and God. This process is the foundation of centering prayer?a technique of prayer that Keating and other contemporary mystics have revived out of the ancient mystical traditions of the Desert Fathers and the medieval mystics.
