Before Centering Prayer I had touches of God but doing Centering Prayer now I would say it is a constant awareness and even when I’m being “Barbara” at her nth degree I know that he is just loving me. Just loving me. And that really came through Centering Prayer as a relationship because you meet with him every day. I work mostly with people who are practicing Centering Prayer so I would say in our former ministry we did a lot of crises counseling because people did not have a prayer practice. So now we meet really as companions.  


Antes de la Oración Centrante había tenido contactos con Dios, pero ahora que hago la Oración Centrante diría que hay una conciencia constante, y aún cuando estoy siendo “Bárbara” hasta un extremo sé que Él simplemente me ama. Simplemente me ama. Y eso realmente me llegó por medio de la Oración Centrante como una forma de relación, porque nos encontramos todos los días. Trabajo en su mayor parte con personas que practican.
