Thanks to all of those who attended the first Beginning Meditation. It was a great turn out and I am so pleased to have the opportunity to teach what I hope you all come to find an invaluable skill for living. I am so proud of you all for taking the step toward taking care of yourselves! You are all wonderful!
I will work on making more cushions for our next meeting. But it can be nice to have your own at home. Below are some links on how to make a zabuton. The first link is a very easy sewing project. The second link is for those who may not know how or want to sew. It is a very simple and inexpensive project using blankets to make sitting cushions.
Remember, above all, be kind with yourself. It will take some practice to get used to this. No need to judge or evaluate. Just practice. There is nothing to achieve once you sit down on your cushion! We will discuss, share successes and problem solve at our next group meeting. Do, however, feel free to email me during the week if you have any questions that are interfering with your daily practice.
I look forward to seeing you next week!
