Go Eco-Friendly with Your Stillness

We are proud to offer eco-friendly products to beautify your home.

Stillness Room is an advocate for the responsible use of forest products and finishes for woods. With this end in mind our entire line of meditation products is created from mango wood and other sustainable materials. The wood used in our furniture comes from the same tree that provides the delicious and nutritious mango fruit that so many enjoy. After 20 years the mango tree stops bearing fruit and can then be harvested for timber. In addition to having multiple uses the mango tree can also be plantation grown, eliminating the clear cut practice that is damaging to the rain forests. Other materials that make up our meditation furniture are fast growing seagrass and banana leaf weaves, both highly abundant and sustainable materials of the region where they are manufactured. To seal the pieces we stipulate only clear water based finishes be used to eliminate harmful toxins which pollute both the environment and our homes. Our cushions use kapok stuffing, a natural and sustainable material from the Kapok tree. Kapok is a hypo-allergenic fibre which is mold, dust-mite and mildew resistent. Finally, our 100% cotton cushion covers zip off for easy washing. Ethically manufactured in Indonesia.

Create A Little Mind Space

Create a sanctuary in your home to escape the chaos.

Having a sacred space where you can retreat to find a moment of silence and stillness
can change your outlook on life, increase your spirit, decrease your stress and improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Create Your Stillness Room

Creating a Stillness Room in your home doesn't need to be complicated. You don't need a lot of space either. Choose an area that intuitively feels good and where you will be able to clear your space of clutter, interruptions and noise.
A small corner in the family room or your bedroom can easily be used with a room divider to carve out a dedicated space for your meditation practice. If you can dedicate an entire room, you may want to consider the wall color, earth tones bring a sense of calmness and serenity.
Consider using more natural materials such as wood, bamboo, stone and seagrass. The idea is to bring the outdoors in, creating a connection with nature.
Looking to connect with friends and family? Creating a family Stillness Room with multiple seating arrangements can be a wonderful way to discuss the day or simply sit in silence with a pot of tea or hot chocolate.
Are you a new mother? Why not decorate the nursery with a natural Zen theme to promote tranquility. The Raja chair's shorter arm length can provide excellent support while you nurse your new baby or meditate to the sound of your little one's breathe. The complimentary side table can keep things at arm's reach.
Do you own a business, health clinic or yoga studio? Provide your customers with a unique lounge area to sit while they wait for their appointment or class and create an tranquil experience they absolutely won't forget.
However you choose to create your Stillness Room, be sure that it's comfortable and peaceful. When decorating your space be sure to keep accessories to a minimum. As they say, a cluttered home is a cluttered mind. Your sacred space should invite you in at the end of a hectic day, leaving everything behind, take a deep breath and simply be still.

How to Meditate

There are many different ways to meditate.  As your practice deepens and you become more aware, you'll soon begin to discover what works for you. Follow these basic guidelines on developing a 10 minute daily meditation practice.
1)  Designate your space, big or small. Free your space of excessive clutter, interruptions and noise. 
2) Set a timer for 2 minutes more than you plan on meditating to give you time to settle in.
3) Get low. Sit as close to the floor as possible either on cushions or a meditation chair.
4) Proper posture is important for the flow of energy.  Sit up tall with a straight spine.  Cross your legs and rest your hands on your thighs, palms facing up or cup your hands together and rest them in your lap.
5) Close your eyes, gently. It may help to focus on the area between your eyebrows (known as your "third eye" and center for intuition).
6) Focus on your breath.  Don't force it.  Notice the inhales and exhales, the rise and fall of your belly.
7) Your thoughts will start to wander – go back to focusing on your breath.
8) When your timer goes off, slowly open your eyes.  Take a moment to scan your body and notice how you feel. Remain in silence for as long as you can, even if it's only for a minute.
As you go on with your day and begin to feel stressed or overwhelmed, go back to focusing on your breath and notice the immediate calming effect. Meditation is not about trying to clear your mind of all thoughts, but rather noticing the thoughts, letting them go and then returning the awareness to your breath.  You'll soon notice there's a larger gap between the wandering thoughts as your mind learns to shut "off".  Keep practicing and things just keep getting better – and feel free at any time to lengthen your meditation session.
