There are a variety of ways to sit comfortably during meditation with or without support. You can sit
on a high cushion on the floor with your legs crossed. This is a very basic form of the traditional
Indian lotus position. There are many zafus or high round cushions that support this style of sitting.
You can sit back on your ankles in the traditional Japanese seiza position. For this position you can
use a meditation stool to take the pressure off your knees and ankles and to keep your back
straight. If you would prefer not to sit on the floor you can sit on a chair. Simply ensure that you can
put your feet flat on the ground to keep yourself steady, balanced and grounded and that your back
doesn’t slouch into the back of the chair. Lying down is not the best position for meditating as it
energetically vibrant and it is far too easy to fall asleep.
