What You Need Tonight - Compassion Meditation

May 10, 2022

Julie Potiker guides you through this compassion meditation where you will focus on what you need right now, for yourself and your community. She completes the meditation with a poem by Jessica Kantrowitz, "Community".

Community by Jessica Kantrowitz,

Maybe you’ll be in a place

to help someone today

or maybe you’ll have to ask for help

for the nth day in a row.

maybe you’ll be someone’s comfort

Or maybe you’ll need their comfort.

It’s not the numbers game, it’s community

and you’re part of it.

you belong

you’re needed

we need you.

Community, by Jessica Kantrowitz, from Blessings for the Long Night.
