Creating an Outdoor Meditation Space

Thursday, April 26, 2018

It’s spring in South Florida, which is a time for rebirth and renewal. As the changes in season subtly make themselves known, why not consider a rebirth of your own, of sorts, and consider creating an outdoor meditation space. The benefits of meditation are well documented, and an outdoor meditation space may be just the thing to inspire you to develop a regular meditation practice.

Benefits of Meditation

There are many benefits to a regular meditation practice. For example, consistent meditation reduces stress, improves concentration, and slows the aging process. Meditation also increases the number of disease fighting genes in our bodies in as little as a few months. What’s not to love?

Identifying a Meditation Space

Take a few moments to look around your outdoor space. Is there a tree you feel a particular affinity to? Does your balcony have a neglected corner that could be put to good use? You don’t need a lot of space for mediation, however, adding a few items meaningful to you can enhance the experience. Meditation calls for quieting the mind. While many people envision meditators in the seated lotus position, this is not the only position used for meditation. If you have the space to accommodate it, and you are interested, a hammock is a lovely space for meditation. There is no “right way” to identify a meditation space. You just want a place that is easy to get to appealing to your senses.

Adding Objects of Meaning

Once you have identified a peaceful spot, consider adding some items that will enhance your meditation experience. Perhaps you find water soothing. If so, consider adding a fountain or other water element. You may find wind chimes enhance your experience. Consider adding a small rock altar for burning incense.

You may want to install a few paving stones, or you may find you prefer the feel of the earth underneath you while meditating. Some people invest in a few outdoor cushions, making seating more comfortable. You may prefer to meditate seated on a chair or bench.

Creating a space that appeals to you increases the likelihood you will go there and meditate. Take some time to determine what is most appealing to you. And enjoy!
