Beginner's Meditation Tip - Use Some Cushions

Almost every person who attempts meditation for the first time (or few times) almost invariably discovers one thing very quickly; sitting still can hurt... A LOT.  Especially in modern times where we're used to lounging, slouching and generally sitting with our backs supported most of the time.  Our big "prime mover" muscles are all short and stiff and our postural muscles are all weak.  Consequently, when we try to sit cross legged it's a miserable experience.

Although Im not going to get into the specifics of proper posture in this post, I do want to share with you a simple and easy way to set up some "guerrilla cushions" so you can set yourself up for success.
If you want to sit for 20 or 30 minutes and you can't manage a full lotus, you need to use some cushions, but they can be expensive.  Check out the video clip below to find out how you can get yourself set up for free!

If you would like more in depth instruction or just want some people to practice with in the Tempe, Arizona area give us a call at 6027517003.
