Listen to Radio Interview with Sandy Guancial
On August 4, 2014, Sandy appeared on the "Good News" radio
program in Dallas (KATH 910 AM) hosted by Stacie Blazek.
Sandy was asked to comment on several topics and questions.
Stacie asked Sandy to talk about the Dallas/Fort Worth Chapter
of Contemplative Outreach and how it got started; how does traditional prayer compare to centering
prayer; and is it difficult for some people to practice silent
meditation like centering prayer. Sandy also talked
about the upcoming William Meninger workshop on the enneagram
(September 5 & 6) and about her monthly Visual Journaling
group. You will find Sandy's interview both insightful
and entertaining. Click the play button on the
