Mindfulness Practice: A Song for Restoration

I am here. I am well. I am worthy. I am enough. These are the first few lines of a song Michelle Chatman sings to help her restore.

This week, we’re offering something a little different. Dr. Michelle Chatman shares a practice that she’s been singing since 2020, when we saw the killing of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor; when the COVID-19 pandemic began and we saw its devastating effects upon Black and brown communities; and we also saw protests and uprisings in response to racial injustice around the globe.

For this practice, you can close your eyes or lower your gaze while you listen and then continue to meditate, reflecting on the offering. The invitation is to take a deep breath, settle into your body, and listen.

You are well. 

You are worthy. 

You are enough. 

We are here. 

And we are well. 

We are worthy. 

We are enough. 

We are enough. 

We are enough.
