A "Buddhist Geeks" episode on someone who went from Zen to a Catholic-contemplative Christian contemplative practice. Some mention of the Abbas and Ammas, and Pseudo-Dionysius, ensues.
David Frenette is a senior teacher in the Centering Prayer movement–a contemplative Christian practice that was designed by Father Thomas Keating. He’s also the spiritual director at the Center for Contemplative Living in Denver, and the author of The Path of Centering Prayer: Deepening Your Experience of God.
In this episode, David describes his path from Zen to Christianity and how he uses the practice of Centering Prayer to deepen his experience of God.
