English Transcript: 

I’m relatively new to Centering Prayer – four years. I had been working 14 hour days. My mother had been ill. I had been traveling back and forth. I’d done everything I could to avoid going deep, to avoid thinking right, to live purely on the surface. And what happened with Centering was that just all fell away.  And in falling away, part of what occurred was just this beautiful peace. And I think Contemplative Outreach/Centering Prayer takes us deep. It allows us to start to live authentically.

Profundizar en nuestro interior gracias a la Oración Centrante

Soy relativamente nueva en la Oración Centrante – la practico hace cuatro años. Estaba trabajando 14 horas por día. Mi madre estaba enferma y yo estaba yendo y viniendo todo el tiempo. Había hecho todo lo posible por evitar profundizar en mi interior, por evitar pensar correctamente, y trataba de vivir solo en la superficie. Y lo que sucedió con la Oración Centrante es que todo eso desapareció. Y al desaparecer, parte de lo que quedó fue este lugar maravilloso. Y creo que Contemplative Outreach y la Oración Centrante nos  llevan a profundizar en nosotros. Nos permite empezar a vivir auténticamente.
