F*ck That: An Honest Meditation for These Times

Maybe you’ve noticed that a thin-skinned, pathological liar and racist misogynist with no experience or interest in government and a history of boasting about sexual assault was just elected president. You probably also noticed that he has assembled a cabinet of white nationalists, homophobes, wife beaters, school privatizers, labor opponents, xenophobes, corrupt bankers, conspiracy theorists and family members to head up agencies they seem hellbent on destroying. This man is in office because almost 63 million of our fellow citizens voted for him because they think America was great when genocide, slavery or Jim Crow was happening. That’s what we’re dealing with.


As Donald Trump violates laws, creates new international enemies, undoes civil rights, and generally backtracks furiously on progress, it can be hard to find the space to breathe. That’s where meditation comes in; a way to care for ourselves by briefly clearing our heads before we get back to the daily work of pushing back on everything this maniac stands for. These times call for a special kind of meditation, one that really addresses the weight that drags us all down.

Enter “F*ck That: An Honest Meditation.” It combines soothing music, relaxing visuals and a gentle voiceover offering the most profanity-laden guidance you have ever heard on a meditation recording. “Take in a deep breath. Now breathe out. Just feel the f*cking nonsense float away,” the voice suggests. “And with each breath, feel your body saying, f*ck that."

In other words, it’s just what you need right now in this moment. Check it out in full, below.
