  • Author Jens Soering

    Jens Soering is a German author who spent more than 33 years in American and British prisons for a double-murder he did not commit. After the discovery of new DNA evidence in 2016 he was released to Germany in 2019.

Centering Prayer is a modern adaptation of the ancient practice of contemplative prayer, a process of inner purification and an opening of the mind and heart to God. In this remarkable book, Jens Soering, an inmate in a Virginia prison, tells how Centering Prayer and its corollary, Centering Practice—contemplative prayer in action—enable him to survive the daily pain of prison life. Through a moving true story of personal redemption that shocks and inspires, Soering shows how we can all transform our crosses, our prisons (literal or metaphorical), into the means of our salvation.
