Do I need tools to meditate "well"?
Many people find it important to prepare a nice meditation place in order to be able to practice meditation and mindfulness continuously in a pleasant atmosphere. A singing bowl, cymbals or incense sticks, along with a meditation cushion, create a suitable atmosphere and facilitate retreat and meditation. Knee pads are an ideal addition to sitting for long periods in meditation and relieve the knees.

Prolonged meditation can be painful at first because your body is not used to sitting still for long periods of time. Knee pads can be a solution. You can place knee pads under your knees as well as under your ankles to relieve the strain of sitting for long periods of time.
Singing bowls have been used in religious ceremonies for centuries. They often perform much the same function as our church bells and are usually made of the same material. A singing bowl is often used to mark the beginning and end of a training session, but they can also be used for sound meditation and singing bowl therapy. They get their best sound when struck on a soft surface. You will find different coasters for different sized singing bowls in our range.
Cymbals are small double bowls from the Indian subcontinent. They are commonly used to indicate the beginning and end of a training period. They are available in different sizes and can also be supplied decorated.
