ZAFU! Gesundheit.Posted on: April 17th, 2013 by Kelly Green
When someone mentions meditation to me, all I can see in my mindâ€™s eye is an old guy shouting, â€œSERENITY NOW! SERENITY NOW! â€ But when my darling better half said she needed a Zafu to go with her Zabuton, at least I knew better than to say, â€œGesundheit.â€Â If my rather excitable little wife wants to invest in some inner peace quality time, all I have to say is, â€œYes please.â€ And, â€œHow soon can that be delivered.â€
For me, if push came to shove, I would admit that a little down time, meditating on, where Iâ€™ve been, where I am, and where I am going, would probably be very beneficial . . . right up to the point where I grabbed the remote to find out what the score was or the phone to order a meat lovers pizza.
However, my wifeâ€™s interest in this product led me on a merry chase as I looked for these specialty items. Imagine my surprise when I found all these products and more at MatsMatsMats.com. Did you know that the type of stuffing can make an immense difference to the meditator . . . er,Â meditate- ee. . .um practitioner.Â The covering come in cotton, eco cotton, silk (although if you have a silk Zabuton with a silk Zafu, I have no idea how you would keep from sliding off the mat into your Zen garden.
I also found something more along my lines with a meditation bench. (Of course I also picture me using it next to my mini fridge.) There is a Shiatsu Massage Mat there that I have been eyeballing. I wonder if I can convince my wife that giving me a massage will count as a workout for her.
