Many who choose to dedicate a space for meditation or ritual create their own area in which to customize for this purpose; a 'meditation station' or altar area. A cleared out space where you can be comfortable and relaxed to center yourself is a great gift. Often times you can incorporate what some call an altar with personal photos, photos of family, friend & gurus, fresh flowers, statues of Gods or deities, and anything that gives you peace and inspiration. A cushion, stool or chair for which to sit on is often used. This space is never necessary, but if you want to have that personal sanctuary then create it! It should reflect who you are and what feeds your soul. I love having my own space where I know I can feel relaxed, inspired and allow myself to be free from the outside world. If you choose to not to create a space then maybe your favorite designate spot in the house or your favorite spot under a tree in the park nearby. You'll find that if you create a space for tranquility, the moment you settle in the relaxation begins. Nurture your mind, body & spirit. Namaste.
