Meditation - Tips, Tools, Devices

Sitting Meditation (zazen in Zen) is physically demanding.  While I'm in generally good shape I have a few historic injuries that complicate sitting meditation.  I'm also an experimenter by nature which oozes out in Zen as I search for techniques to find a Neutral Position for zazen.

WabiSabiPenguinOur bodies aren't use to sitting folded up and motionless for long periods of time without some discomfort.  The goal is not to eliminate discomfort; it is to find a natural balance (I call it finding neutral) that is a healthy starting point for sitting meditation.  Neutral is the position that best supports your body without adding pain due to poor posture or poor sitting position or tools.
