Introduction

The posture of meditation is an online workshop with two intertwined aims: to make your sitting practice more comfortable, and to allow an understanding of meditative posture to take you further into profound states of relaxation and letting go.

Effective and comfortable meditation posture

If we explore three simple principles we can create a posture on our sitting cushion, chair, or kneeling bench that radically catalyzes the practice of meditation. We come back into our bodies, the mind settles down, and a shimmering field of sensation comes to life. But all too often, sitting meditation can be painful over long periods of time. It doesn't have to be that way. We want to allow the easiest, the most natural quality of sitting. We want to make sitting user friendly. So I invite you to join me on this journey of awakening through the posture of meditation.
