Facebook and British spoken-word artist Kate Tempest have created a beautiful “spoken word meditation” that will help you reconnect today.
During the time of COVID-19, many people are feeling lonely [READ: Meditation For Loneliness].
I watched the video this morning, Wednesday, and it immediately made me feel more connected to people, to society, to my family, and to my home. It’s a beautiful short film that Facebook is promoting as part of its Community Help feature that helps users during the coronavirus pandemic.
Listening to her poetic observations, and her soulful voice, talking about the power of transcendence, made me smile and immediately dragged me out of the lonely self-isolation rut we’ve all been living in.

Dorga5’s “Never Alone” spoken word meditation made me feel socially connected
Listening to DORGA and Facebook’s “Never Alone” video immediately made me feel more connected, socially. It reminded me that we are all in this thing together. And we are stronger together.
The soulful voice of the narrator combined with the gorgeous words really create a sense of belonging and oneness with other people.
We’re never lost if we can find each other
“We’re working every dread day that is given us
Feeling like the person people meet really isn’t us
Like we’re going to buckle underneath the trouble
Like any minute now, the struggle’s going to finish us
And then we smile at all our friends.”
“Even when I’m weak and I’m breaking
I stand weeping at the train station
‘Cause I can see your faces
There is so much peace to be found in people’s faces.”

Facebook is using its Community Help project to help people stay connect while they are in self-isolation. Facebook has pledge $20 million in equalling donations to the United Nations Foundation and the CDC Foundation for pandemic relief.
