Kess Frey

Featuring Kess Frey



In writing Bridge Across Troubled Waters Kess Frey wanted to clarify a variety of misperceptions and criticisms regarding Centering Prayer and Thomas Keating’s teaching. He also wrote it to explore the intimacy of the divine relationship we all have with God.

Most criticisms and misunderstandings of Centering Prayer come from one side of a theological divide separating two opposite perspectives on Christian prayer and the soul’s relationship with God. These opposite perspectives have been called “the Western Model of God-outside-the-soul and the-soul-outside-of-God,” and “the Scriptural Model of God-inside-the-soul and the-soul-inside-of-God.” Is it possible to build a healing bridge of reconciliation across the troubled waters of opposition that separate these two theological viewpoints?  We’ll explore this question in terms of Centering Prayer’s conceptual background together with a new view of the intimate divine relationship we all have with God.

Kess Frey has studied Eastern and Western Philosophy, Psychology, and Religion since 1965. Kess met Thomas Keating in 1989 and has been involved with Centering Prayer ever since. He lives in Anchorage, Alaska, where he offers Introductory Centering Prayer Workshops, facilitates prayer groups and retreats, and is active in prison ministry.


In addition to Bridge Across Troubled Waters, Kess is the author of several books including: Human Ground Spiritual Ground; Paradise Lost and Found – A Reflection on Centering Prayer’s Conceptual Background; Centering Prayer and Rebirth in Christ on the Tree of Life – The Process of Inner Transformation; The One Who Loves Us – Centering Prayer and Evolving Consciousness; and The Will of Divine Love: Centering Prayer and Spiritual Psychology.
