Top 10 meditation resources

Here they are, in no particular order:

  1. Buckwheat meditation cushion. I got mine on Amazon and it’s made by “Infinite Nature”. They seem to be currently unavailable. But, another brand will work, I’m sure.

  2. Insight Timer. This app has cool bell sounds and keeps track of your hours meditating. Also, you can customize when the bells ring. (For example, you could have it ring 3 times at the beginning and then once after 30 minutes, and then 3 times after an hour.)

  3. Wherever You Go, There You Are (by Jon Kabat-Zinn). I haven’t read this whole book, but I love the title. That’s enough to get it on the list.

  4. 10-day silent retreat. I know it sounds intense, and it is, but it’s worth doing.

  5. Crystals. Just kidding.

  6. Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha (by Daniel Ingram). This is the book people on the Internet love to hate. But, it’s the most comprehensive and honest account of how to get enlightened you’ll find anywhere.

  7. Padma Seat. This is a strap that helps you sit upright.

  8. Curiosity. If you aren’t willing to experiment, you’re not going to get very far.

  9. Podcasts. I’ve enjoyed listening to Michael Taft, Ken McCleod, Dan Harris, Joseph Goldstein and some others I can’t remember right now.

  10. Online forums. It’s good to have a place where you can ask questions when you’re stuck. If you’re a serious practitioner, the Dharma Overground and the streamentry subreddit are useful.

Hope this helps.


P.S. If you’re looking to get started with meditation, the No Problem course is a must.
