Seeking suggestions for a place for a friend to enjoy a relaxing three-day yoga and meditation retreat in a beautiful location anywhere in California. Potential complication: it has to be next week.

Please suggest your favorite music for yoga and/or meditation that is made with real sounds or instruments (singing bowls, water, etc) instead of synthesizers. [more inside]

Has anyone ever taken the "Inner Quest Intensive" 3-day course at Kripalu Yoga Center in Lenox, MA? I'm thinking about doing it and would like to hear what others' experiences were like. Specifically, what did you actually do during the time there -- how were the days structured, what kinds of practices did you experience? [more inside]

Have you done a workshop with Julia Cameron and/or have you spent time at Kripalu in Western Mass? I'm thinking about signing up for Julia Cameron's Artist's Way Workshop at Kripalu next week, but money is tight and I want to make sure this will be worth the $500. [more inside]

I'm really interested in yoga and meditation.
I'm quite new to it all but do I really need to buy a meditation cushion?
Can I not just use normal pillows or my bed?
What's so special about these meditation cushions?

Are there alternatives to the lotus position for classic meditation that don't leave the back unsupported? I've found that sitting in an unsupported position, or in a chair that doesn't have a seat back, ends up making my back ache rather strongly. I've thought about investigating meditation (and looking into the more classical, early practices), but have wondered if there's a "kosher" (accepted in the discipline) way of doing the more classical meditations while having your back completely supported (by lying on the ground, or doing it in a chair, or what have you).
