HANDOUT 2: Creating a Centering Meditation or Prayer
Create your own centering meditation or prayer that names your experiences, feelings, and hopes as you try to respond with compassion to individuals, groups, or the world. Perhaps you'll be drawn to completing some of these sentences. Or, create your own sentences that name your experience of trying to live compassionately. If you are creating your own words, you might try writing as if you were writing a letter to someone you love and trust with whom you can share your experiences, feelings, and hopes.
