Mindful : June 2018
Mini gomdens work well for travelers or children. KnowYourSeats Ah, the ZAFU. In the Western world, it’s the most ubiquitous of meditation seats. For many meditators, this simple, round or crescent-shaped cushion allows a cross-legged posture where the knees rest effortlessly below the hips. Or, if you’re more comfortable in a kneeling position, you can turn the zafu on its short side and straddle it. The consistency of the zafu depends on what it’s filled with, ranging in density from a firm pillow to a stiff bean bag (see page 60 for more about cush- ion fillings). GOMDENS come from a different lineage of meditation than zafus, and were designed specifically with chair-bound lifestyles in mind. Having foam innards, they’re taller and don’t compress like some zafus, but rather stay flat, so your pelvis stays level, rather than angling forward. Your ankles can be loosely crossed in front of you, not directly under you, which reduces pressure on the ankles and knees.
