English Transcript: 

Since I started Centering Prayer, I’m a much better physician – more patience. Thoughts seem to disappear, especially thoughts of having to rush, or be in a hurry – they disappear – and I am able to be in the moment with my patients. And that is such a gift. As far as my family life, everyone says that they benefit from my Centering Prayer because I think it does translate into a much more calm and accepting Anna. There seems to be less anxiousness and certainly it resolved many griefs, many guilts, many sins, the past; and there’s a much more forgiving Anna and that translate into my family life as well.

Los regalos de la Oración Centrante: Sanar el pasado, Vivir en el presente.

Desde que comencé con la Oración Centrante, soy mucho mejor médica –con más paciencia. Hay  ideas que parecen desaparecer, especialmente la idea de tener que correr o estar apurada – desaparecen – y puedo permanecer en el momento con mis pacientes. Y ese es un regalo tan grande. Con respecto a mi vida familiar, todos dicen que se benefician de mi Oración Centrante porque creo que se traduce en una Anna mucho más calmada y tolerante. Parece haber menos ansiedad y ciertamente ha resuelto muchos dolores, muchas culpas, muchos pecados del pasado: y hay una Anna mucho más dispuesta a perdonar, y eso también se refleja en mi vida familiar.
