Go Easy on Yourself

Let go of the idea that the goal of meditation is to stop thinking. “If you go in with that agenda, you’re in for a lot of frustration,” says Summers. The experience of meditation is different for everyone. The point isn’t not to think; it’s to be aware of your thoughts and learn to let them be.

Singing Bowl Mediation Timer and Clock

Singing Bowl Mediation Timer and Clock

Although meditation can be done in almost any context, practitioners usually employ a quiet, tranquil space, a meditation cushion or bench, and some kind of timing device to time the meditation session.  Ideally, the more these accoutrements can be integrated the better.  Thus, it is conducive to a satisfying meditation practice to have a timer or clock that is tranquil and beautiful.  Using a kitchen timer or beeper watch is less than ideal.  And it was with these considerations in mind that we designed our digital Zen Alarm Clock and practice timer.  This unique “Zen Clock” features a long-resonating acoustic chime that brings the meditation session to a gradual close, preserving the environment of stillness while also acting as an effective time signal.
