Father Thomas Keating is the founder of the Centering Prayer movement, based on the retreat into the "inner room" mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 6:6, where the individual is able to meet God. From the book Manifesting God, Father Keating explains the principles of contemplative prayer - prayer as relationship, prayer in secret, and the rewards of prayer in secret.

The content of this short book is life changing. I intend to listen many times, in order to absorb its wisdom. If you are discouraged and God seems out of reach, listen to this.
The narrator was just perfect. He gave wonderful new insights into the meaning of one's "inner" room. I have a new understanding of centering prayer as a means to an end. Basically divine union with God.
