http://www.awakenmeditation.com/ - If you are into meditation and other mind-clearing activities, Zafu is something you should be looking at. They are cushions that are about 14 inches in diameter and 20 inches high. Most of them are made by sewing three pieces of heavy cloth together and filled with buckwheat hulls or kapok which is a fluffy fiber from plants. Zafus are commonly used during sitting meditation. While meditation has been proven to help lower stress and improve health, one of the challenges is that it can be difficult on certain joints. Sitting for extended periods of time on hard surfaces means joints such as hips can be left sore and uncomfortable. Using a cushion will raise the body changing the angle of the hips. Getting the hips up higher makes it more comfortable by lowering the pressure on them. People that spend a lot of time meditating can have joint issues from the extensive sitting. Cutting out the problem using a Zafu cushion will keep them healthier and also make the meditation more effective. Having constant pain makes finding a deeper state during meditation much more challenging. With the help of a simple pillow, you will be able to take your relaxation to the next level.
