English Transcript: 

I feel like Centering Prayer is just hanging out with God twice a day and this is a special date, and a special time, to spend with God and nobody else. Silence and the practice of twice a day deepened my relationship with the Lord Jesus and made me awareness of his presence in my daily life. And I’m calm ... happenings that would upset me don’t affect me much anymore because I have a peace – a center of peace – that is within me that no matter what happens the Spirit within me is there.

La Oración Centrante: desarrollar un centro de paz

Siento que la Oración Centrante es como encontrarme con Dios dos veces al día, y esta es una cita especial, y un momento especial para reunirme con Dios y con nadie más. El silencio y la práctica dos veces al día han profundizado mi relación con el Señor Jesús y me han hecho consciente de su presencia en mi vida diaria. Y me mantengo en calma… situaciones que me hubieran perturbado ya no me afectan tanto porque tengo una paz – un núcleo de paz – que está en mi interior, y, no importa lo que suceda, el Espíritu dentro mío sigue allí.
