Every $100 purchase of cushions or benches in the month of April will help homeless youth:
In late 2013, a group of 15 homeless youth gathered at the
Reciprocity Foundation’s center in Manhattan with a design challenge: to co-create a
Meditation Cushion for homeless youth and for meditators from across
the globe. They designed a beautiful Mandala with images, words and
drawings that represent the practice of meditation.
This stunning Mandala will be silkscreened locally onto soft, high quality cushions from Samadhi and distributed to youth living in homeless
shelters in 2014 to encourage them to meditate.
Taz Tagore, co-founder of the Reciprocity Foundation, said “Each homeless youth designed one “slice” of the mandala.
Together it represents a universe of healing, love, energy, youth, joy and stillness.”
Adam Bucko, co-founder, said, “This cushion will encourage vulnerable
youth to practice meditation in shelters, on the streets, or wherever
they find themselves. It can create a radical change in their day to day
