When I design my meditation cushions, or zafu, I choose colors, textures, and patterns that remind me of peaceful feelings that I receive from nature. I believe nature gives us so much healing energy in the most ordinary settings. Many of my cushions are Japanese inspired.
As I make each cushion, I visualize that it will carry that same energy to the person who will own it and will support them in getting in touch with the peace that lies within themselves. This process gives me so much joy and motivates me to make the best cushion I can for the person who is going to sit on it.
