Creating the most perfect outdoor meditation space

Just LOOK at these gorgeous photos of outdoor meditation/yoga spaces, would you?! I WANT something like this for our house!!

You too can create the most incredible, Instagram-worthy backyard space to meditate in.

Meditation has now become a billion dollar industry. That’s billion with a B.

Many of us think that we must have all of the THINGS that go along with a new meditation practice…or new yoga practice. The new outfit, or incense, or macrame wall hanging…or outdoor meditation space.

While all of those things are really nice, and would certainly make for a comfortable place to meditate, it misses the whole point of meditation: paying attention to now, open-heartedly.

We can pay attention to the WANTING…the striving for bigger, better, more. Noting any feelings of desire (or lack of desire) that arise when you see the “perfect” THING. It’s not wrong to want these things, and it is not a bad thing to build something like this for your own house. Instead of focusing on the thing, take a look at the wanting instead. How does that feel for you.

The truth is, you don’t need anything fancy. In fact THIS is probably the most helpful thing for your outdoor space:

I mean…you get one of these bad-boys, and you can take it outside for a little meditation sesh! haha!

Do you ever meditate outside? What do you use for a place to sit? A chair, the grass, the ground? a mat?
