~Meditation Cushions with ~Pizzazz and Zing~

I started meditating over 40 years ago and my practice has been on and off over the decades. About 10 years ago I made an intention to have a consistent daily practice and I work on that intention every day.
Buddha was asked: “What have you gained from Meditation?” He replied: “Nothing.” “However”, the Buddha said, “let me tell you what I lost, I have lost Anger, Anxiety, Depression, Insecurity, Fear of Old Age and Death.”
Yes...THAT!
I can't say that I'm 'there', where the Buddha was , but I'm in such a better place than I ever would be without meditation.

So...when I say 'I love meditation", I mean it with all my heart. The good thing about MY meditation is that it's not connected to any religion or dogma. I choose a time to sit on my Mindful Cushion, I choose how long that will be and I sit and I follow my breath.

Breathing in, breathing out. It's that simple. And then my "monkey mind' takes over and I'm gone. Writing my shopping list, my 'to do' list, my 'worry list'. And I'm aware of that monkey and I come back to the breath. Breathing in, breathing out. And then the monkey is off again, and them I'm back.

That's how it works. That's what my practice looks like.

All the while I am nurturing, cultivating and growing my "Space of Wisdom" (TM).
That space between the event and my 'reaction'. Today that "Space of Wisdom" (TM) has become my place of 'response'. The place where my wisdom allows me to make choices that are helpful, not hurtful.

Join the growing throngs of meditators today and start by buying a Mindful Cushion by me.
One size DOES NOT fit all. Your unique "sits bones" deserve their own special cushion. Medium, Large and XL are what is going on here!

Love and kindness- Patti <3

Returns and exchange details
Mindful Cushions are guaranteed against manufacturers defects only.

My cushions are triple sewn and triple checked before heading out to their destination. If we miss a manufacturers defect and we mutually agree that is what has happened, then I will replace your cushion (the fabric may be different if the original pattern is discontinued).

The defective cushion must be returned prior to replacement and a credit will be applied for the cost of shipping. A new cushion will be sent out at the sellers expense.

NOTE** Mindful cushions are made, primarily, for sitting meditation ONLY.

They are not made to withstand being thrown or stood on.

They are also not made to get wet or dirty so be sure to store your Mindful Cushion in a clean dry place free of moisture, dirt and critters.

Most of the newer cushions have either a velcro or zipper closure. (some of the earlier cushions were stitched shut). This allows for you to reduce or increase the amount of buckwheat in your cushion.

No refunds on Mindful Cushions or other Mindful Living products.

When you purchase an UNFILLED cushion you will receive instructions on how to fill your cushion. You will need to have access to buckwheat hulls or other grain that is non perishable.

These are the best ingredients with which to fill your cushion.

Medium cushions take approx 5-6lbs
Large cushions take approx 7-8lbs
XL cushions take approx 9-10lbs

NOTE** Mindful cushions are made, primarily, for sitting meditation ONLY.

They are not made to withstand being thrown or stood on.

They are also not made to get wet or dirty so be sure to store your Mindful Cushion in a clean dry place free of moisture, dirt and critters and 4 legged friends.

Most Mindful Cushions come with a velcro or zipper closure under the handle (some models are stitched shut because of style and fabric-be sure to check listing description for this).

This allows you to increase or decrease the amount of buckwheat filling.

If you are so inclined you could empty your cushion by holding the opening over a large bowl or bucket, turn it inside out and clear all the filling.

This would allow you the opportunity to dry or spot clean your cushion.

Mindful Cushions are made of upholstery fabrics so machine washing is not recommended.
