Use your breath to glide into the New Year with help from this guided meditation led by Julie Potiker. She completes the meditation with a reading of her poem, "A New Year".

A New Year by Julie Potiker


A stack of days 

Turning the page






A year gone by 

Lived, used, experienced  

Wrung out  

Hung to dry 

In front of you now  

A crisp stack of paper 

Blank, blindingly bright  

How will you write your moments?  

Moments strung into hours 




With judgement?  

With love?  

With love I say  

For love feels good  

Let’s write our moments with love.
