English Transcript: 

Sr. Bernadette had formed a Contemplative Outreach right here in Denver and it was due to that that I learned about Centering Prayer and began the practice. It’s manifested in relationships – not only my relationship with my wife and my friends and colleagues and people here in the Center [Denver] – but even in my relationship with myself. I would say that I’ve learned to navigate through life better as a result of my Centering Prayer practice and just have a lot more appreciation daily and gratitude. I was one of those people that Thomas talks about that went to India to try to find a meditation or a contemplative practice and so for me to find it right here in our own Judeo-Christian tradition and have it right here in Colorado was like ‘coming home’ for me.

La Hna Bernadette formó un Contemplative Outreach aquí, en Denver, y fue gracias a eso que conocí la Oración Centrante y empecé a practicarla. Ha tenido efectos en mis relaciones – no solo en mi relación con mi esposa y mis amigos y colegas, y con las personas que conozco aquí en el Centro (Denver) – sino en mi relación conmigo mismo. Diría que he aprendido a moverme mejor en la vida como resultado de mi práctica de Oración Centrante, y tengo ahora mucho más reconocimiento y gratitud en mi vida diaria. Yo era una de esas personas de las que habla Thomas, que iban a la India a tratar de encontrar un tipo de meditación o de práctica contemplativa, y por eso, el hecho de encontrarla dentro de nuestra propia tradición judeocristiana y justo aquí, en Colorado, fue para mi como “volver a casa.”
