Meditation: Psalm 23

The much-loved 23rd Psalm continues to speak to us over the centuries. In this meditation – perfect for unwinding before you fall asleep – I share two versions, both using inclusive language.

The words are spoken slowly and repeated so that you can allow your heart and mind to settle on just the phrases that speak to you. The Holy One longs for us to experience deep, restorative rest. Let this meditation lead you.
