    Election Grounding Meditation: Be The Change

    Election Grounding Meditation: Be The Change

    Many of us can't wait until 2020 is over. So much stress and uncertainty this year between the Coronavirus pandemic along with the added stress of election season. But, what if 2020 is the most important year of them all? Join Julie Potiker as she leads an election grounding meditation where you are encouraged to "be the change". It concludes with the reading of the poem,  "What if 2020 isn't cancelled", by Leslie Dwight.
    What if 2020 isn’t cancelled?⁣What if 2020 is the year we’ve been waiting for?⁣A year so uncomfortable, so painful, so scary, so raw — that it finally forces us to grow.⁣A year that screams so loud, finally awakening us from our ignorant slumber.⁣A year we finally accept the need for change.⁣Declare change. Work for change. Become the change. A year we finally band together, instead of⁣pushing each other further apart.⁣⁣2020 isn’t cancelled, but rather⁣the most important year of them all.”⁣

    Loving Kindness Meditation with poem, To Be Hopeful in Bad Times

    Loving Kindness Meditation with poem, To Be Hopeful in Bad Times

    Relax to this loving kindness meditation with Julie Potiker. The meditation concludes with the poem, "To Be Hopeful in Bad Times", by Howard Zinn.


    “To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.  What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.  And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”
    – Howard Zinn
