New to Meditation
Meditation can change your life, but it is not easy. You need to find a place of peace - a still space inside yourself - and to do that you need to be comfortable.
When you begin, you need to find a posture and a pillow that let's you sit comfortably. Your posture supports your practice and helps you relax and be still. When the posture is right, your body smiles. The pelvis rolls forward and the spine straightens naturally. The chin is slightly tucked in and the crown of the head faces upward as if it was being held by an invisible string. The elbows are close to the waist, with no strain on the shoulders.

Your cushion is your home. It is where you start.
Meditation cushions are designed to support your posture and help you sit straight naturally. Cushions come in different shapes and sizes and have different stuffings. There are also props you can use to support other parts of your body (i.e. knees, feet, hands). Find out more about cushions here.
