Meditation: Touching Peace (21:56 min.)

Nov 23, 2022


Meditation: Touching Peace ~

This guided meditation offers a pathway to quieting our mind and calming anxiety. We begin with long deep breathing, and with the breath, engage the image of a smile and relax through the body. Then we practice resting in relaxed awareness, allowing waves of thoughts, feelings and sensations to come and go.

The meditation ends with a beautiful verse from poet Philip Booth:

As you float now, where I held you
and let go, remember when fear
cramps your heart what I told you:
lie gently and wide to the light-year
stars, lie back, and the sea will hold you.

Poem: “First Lesson,” by Philip Booth from Lifelines: Selected Poems 1950-1999 (Viking).
