  • Meditation cushion, bench, or favorite chair

  • Quiet, tidy spot, preferably reserved for meditation

  • Regular time slot, if possible

  • Loose-fitting, comfortable clothing

  • Phone turned off, answering-machine volume turned down low

  • Comfortable sitting position

  • Favorite meditation technique(s)

Other items you may want to include:

  • Stretches to prepare your body for sitting

  • Altar of special objects, pictures, candles, or incense

  • Warm sweater or shawl (if you tend to get cold)

  • Hallway or path for walking meditation, if you want

  • Meditation teacher to consult in case you get stuck or want to go deeper
