Zafu shopping in Toronto
August 19, 2008 8:56 PM   Subscribe

I'd like to get a zafu and zabuton[?] for meditation, but I'd like to actually sit on a couple to find out what I find comfortable. Where can I try out and buy a zafu and zabuton, in person, in or near Toronto?

Are there any meditation groups near you? Mindfulness? Zen? Here in my area, a local yoga studio actually rents out space to a meditation group, and also carries the zafu and zabuton for sale.
I would think that members of a group near you would be able to point you in the right direction, if they purchased theirs locally.

Hope this helps!

Surely there are plenty of Zen groups around Toronto, maybe you could contact them?

But - owning zafu and zabuton won't help you meditate better, and I think that's kind of counter to the spirit of the thing. Use your pillow.

Response by poster: borkingchikapa: Maybe so. But here I'm asking about where to find a particular kind of store in my city.

I don't know your area but I often see them in the new age type bookstores. Try calling some of those.
