Lyrics

Vengan . . . vengan al
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
Centro de aprendizaje;
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
De integracion y gozo.

Come . . . come to the
Center of light, center of love,
Center of learning and change,
Center of light, center of love,
Center of wholeness and joy.

Together we journey through darkness and pain;
Together we learn, together we change;
Together we magnify the strengths of each other;
Together we find our way home.

Home to the
Center of light, center of love,
Center of learning and change,
Center of light, center of love,
Center of wholeness and joy.

We all, like children, are drawn to the flame
That purifies the soul again and again—
That frees the body and stills the mind,
That carries the spirit home.

Home to the
Center of light, center of love,
Center of learning and change,
Center of light, center of love,
Center of wholeness and joy.

Centro de luz, centro de amor,
Centro de aprendizaje;
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
De integracion y gozo.

COMPLETE LYRICS IN SPANISH
Vengan . . . vengan al
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
Centro de aprendizaje;
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
De integracion y gozo.

Juntos atravezamos la oscuridad y el dolor;
Juntos aprendemos y juntos cambiamos;
Juntos engrandecemos nuestras fortalezas,
Encontrando nuestra casa.

A la casa donde esta el
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
Centro de aprendizaje;
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
De integracion y gozo.

Todos, como ninos, venemos a la llama,
Que purifica el alma otra vez de nuevo—
Que asi el cuerpo libre y calma la mente,
Que entrega el alma a casa.

A la casa donde esta el
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
Centro de aprendizaje;
Centro de luz, centro de amor,
De integracion y gozo.

Quote of the Week

Breathing in, I calm my body;
Breathing out, I smile;
Dwelling in the present moment
I know this is a wonderful moment.
