    Relaxing Compassion Meditation with poem by Daniel Baylis

    Relaxing Compassion Meditation with poem by Daniel Baylis

    Take the time to find compassion for yourself and others in this relaxing compassion meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with a reading of the poem, "A Collection of Atoms", by Daniel Baylis.
     
    A Collection of Atoms, by Daniel Baylis
    Working together
    In temporary harmony
    Before being dispersed
    Back into the universe
    Your earthly task
    Is to help those atoms radiate
    Imagine the simplicity
    You need not
    Achieve anything but
    Gently glow
    -Daniel Baylis

    Loving Body Scan with Prayer for Peace in Israel

    Loving Body Scan with Prayer for Peace in Israel

    Scan your body and breathe in love and appreciation through this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker.  She completes the meditation with timely words from Rabbi Jordan Braunig, "A Prayer for Peace".
     
    A Prayer for Peace, Rabbi Jordan Braunig
    It is possible to pray for peace. Our prayer life need not know our boundaries.
    No green lines, no dashes, no subtle demarcations.
    Our longings can transcend our political ideologies, cut across our keen analyses.
    Earnestness, cast out of our public discourse, still has a place in the language of our hearts.
    We have the capacity to pray for the old couple crouched in their stairwell in Ashkelon and the terrified child in his pajamas in Gaza.
    We can spread our prayer like a tattered shawl like a billowing canopy like a sparkling firmament over the tired shoulders of these and across the narrow frames of those.
    We are not naive, not cowards, nor traitors to pray for peace.
    We are told to get in line, to stand with them or to stand with the other,
    but we pray to a Holy One who resides in the space between, diminished by their missiles, laid low by their rockets, exhausted, but still listening for our prayers.

    Moon Eyes Meditation - with Poem by Hafiz

    Moon Eyes Meditation - with Poem by Hafiz

    Connect to yourself  - and others through this loving kindness meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with a reading by Hafiz, "With That Moon Language".
    With That Moon Language, by Hafiz (translated by Daniel Ladinsky)
    Admit something:
    Everyone you see, you say to them,
    “Love me.” Of course you do not do this out loud;
    otherwise, someone would call the cops.
    Still though, think about this, this great pull in us to connect. Why not become the one who lives with a full moon in each eye

Love these guided meditations

I found out about Julie from the KPBS San Diego website. I’ve been trying to meditate 1-2x daily during the pandemic. Her episodes have been very helpful, just the right length. Thanks Julie!
