Sukkot Guided Visualization with poem by Lesli Koppelman Ross

October 12, 2020

Enjoy this Sukkot guided visualization led by Julie Potiker for the Balanced Mind Meditation Center. Sukkot, also known as the Feast of the Tabernacles, is a week long Jewish holiday. The meditation ends with the poem "Sukkot: The Heart of the Sukkah", by Lesli Koppelman Ross.


Sukkot: The Heart of the Sukkah

let the walls of my heart
be easily moved
as the walls of the Sukkah
that sway in the wind

let the roof of my heart
be porous to tears
as the roof of the Sukkah
that lets in the rain

let the space in my heart
be open to guests
as to Ushpizin
who pass through each night

let the beat of my heart
be a vital reminder
that life here is transient –
a temporary dwelling

let the walls, left unsealed,
and the roof, with its lattice,
frame the cracks
that will let in the light
