Looking for a wholesaler of meditation products? Then you have come to the right place for a wide range of products that can support your meditation practice. To support because, in essence, for meditation you only need your own body and mind. However, pleasant, well-designed meditation products can lift your practice to a higher level. Because our ‘bodymind’ responds to its surroundings, to smells, sounds, colours and shapes. We humans are creatures of habit. The association with a certain room or objects can help focus your mind. And you can use this to your advantage in your meditation practice. Did we make you curious? Read on below!
Haven't we all thought this at one time or another? Meditating is so difficult! I would like to, but... I can't, I don't have the time, I don't know how to, etc. Sounds familiar? Let us help you get started, by first explaining what meditation actually is.
Meditation is a concentration exercise aimed at gaining insight into the workings of your mind and then training it in the desired direction. Through meditation, you train your consciousness to perceive what is going on inside of you, to recognise and acknowledge habitual patterns, and then to transform them. And just as muscles in the gym grow through regular training, so too do your mind skills develop through regular meditation.
There are many ways to meditate: you can concentrate on the breath, on a certain object, on chanting a mantra and/or by visualisation. All different meditation techniques have their function. Depending on what you want to train or what suits you, you can choose one or the other form. Well known branches are Mindfulness, Vipassana, Zen and Tibetan Buddhism.
But how do meditation products help in this? Good question! Whichever meditation skills you train in, one quality of the human mind is the formation of habits through conditioning, among other things. When we go to our bedroom and lie in bed, our body is conditioned to sleep; and this conditioning is so deep that it even produces biological substances like melatonin that facilitate sleep. This is enabled by the space you go to (bedroom), the posture you adopt (lying down), etc.
By meditating regularly and using fixed objects or rituals, your body and consciousness get conditioned to go 'into meditation'. In other words, to leave stimuli from the outside world for what they are, to relax physically and to focus mentally on your practice.
Meditation starts with assuming a relaxed, alert posture in which a straight spine is most important. Round meditation cushions and half moon shaped cushions are most used for this. Phoenix Import has a wide range of meditation cushions with covers of 100% organic cotton, hemp cushions, with chakra symbols and much more. View all meditation cushions here!
Yoga bolsters are sturdy oblong cushions with a round (or sometimes rectangular) shape. The bolsters of Phoenix Import are filled with natural buckwheat chaff. This makes it easy to make the bolster more or less firm, just the way you like it. A rectangular mediation cushion/bolster is used by people who like to sit on a larger cushion or who have very long legs. A round bolster can be used as a support for the neck during the body scan in your mindfulness course. Else, during the final meditation practice at your yoga class.
Where in Tibetan Buddhism meditation cushions are used, the Vipasana tradition knows the use of a meditation bench. Phoenix Import, among other things, sells foldable meditation benches, convenient to take to your meditation course or when travelling. Also available are meditation bench cushions and carry bags.

A meditation mat is used to put under your meditation cushion. The advantage is that you can rest your knees easier on the surface below. And your feet do not get cold. Meditation mats are available separately in various colours and also as a set, together with a matching cushion. View all meditation mats and meditation sets now.
Because you sit still for a long period of time during meditation, a wrapper can be pleasant to prevent you from cooling down. In addition, meditation shawls help you to get closer to yourself, to bundle your energy and your focus around your body in a natural way. Besides meditation shawls, Phoenix Import offers all sorts of useful meditation accessories for during meditation, such as (woollen) slippers, and support cushions for under your knees.
All types of metal singing bowls can be used in meditation. Often a singing bowl is used to announce and conclude a meditation session. Also tingsha's - small cymbals - are often used for that purpose.
But singing bowls can also be an instrument during the meditation practice itself. The tone and vibration of the singing bowl helps to anchor you in your body, and can be the object of concentration. Tibetan singing bowls are the most well-known, but crystal singing bowls with their crystal clear sound are also becoming increasingly popular.
See the Phoenix Import homepage for a complete overview of all our spiritual products, including various types of meditation products.
Arrange a fixed place for yourself where you will sit and meditate. It can be in a separate room or in another living space where you put down your meditation mat and cushion. Also, the use of the same shawl every time can be part of your meditation ritual. These habits are also found in Tibetan monasteries, where each monk or nun has his/her own fixed seat and attributes.
In addition, you can also use sensory rituals to start your meditation session. For example, burn a candle and an incense stick or evaporate some essential oil with a scent that you find pleasant. The use of ritual instruments such as tingshas, singing bowls or tuning forks can also be used to mark the beginning and end of a meditation session. All are useful tools in training your mind.
