Wishing Well Guided Meditation

February 23, 2023

What is it you need right now? In this guided meditation Julie Potiker takes you on a journey to a Wishing Well. She completes the meditation with her poem, "Aspen Trees, Version 3".

Aspen Trees Version 3 by Julie Potiker

The pale grey trunks welcome me

their black eyes and thick painterly designs beckonĀ 

thousands of delicate arms sway in the wind.

A blink in time later, the branches are bedecked

in shimmering green vestments

millions of sequins dancing in the sun.

Above the soft roar of the river,

birds flaunting spangled dresses

in flashes of lemon, ruby and emerald

communicate in precious bird language.

I wish I could discern what type of bird belongs to each trill

but even if IĀ could

(and I might)

their stories will remain hidden.

A majestic secret

That fills my heart with wonder

and what feels like


-Aspen Trees, by Julie Potiker
