When it comes to home design, we all have the rooms to cover our needs: the living room, the kitchen, the bathroom, and the bedrooms. If you have meditation in your practice and want to deepen your experience it makes sense to create a dedicated space for it in your home.

Meditation rooms are becoming more popular for a good reason. In today's hectic and fast-changing world it is important to have a tranquil space for deep relaxation where you can focus on yourself. What can be more convenient than having such a space in your own home? You can also use this space for yoga, reading books, journaling, listening to your favorite music, or working on your creative projects. This place is meant for you to become one with the universe and make your soul happy.

When it comes to meditating, regularity is the key, and having a special place invites you to practice more often. Ralph De La Rosa, author of the book The Monkey Is the Messenger: Meditation and What Your Busy Mind Is Trying to Tell You. “We know when we engage with a habit with consistency, the brain gets the message and sinks into it more easily. If you sit down in the same place at or around the same time, your body and neural network will learn this is when we do that thing where we calm down for a while and go within.”

There are no rules on how to create your sacred meditation space, this space is meant to help you find your inner peace and you can set it up however way that brings you joy. With so many of us confined to small spaces as the cost of living goes up, finding your sacred space may mean a spot under a tree, your favorite corner in the gym or sauna, or even a quiet spot in your favorite café. All that matters is it should be your oasis to cultivate deep relaxation and help you rejuvenate and reset your mind and body.
We’ve collected meditation space ideas to inspire you and help you get started.

  1. Choose A Space That Makes You Feel Good

Your space doesn’t need to be a large area or separate room, it can be a cozy nook, a rooftop or backyard, or even a bathtub. “A meditation practice is very personal,” says Sharon Salzburg, author of Real Love: The Art of Mindful Connection. “You can do it anywhere — even the subway. But the meditation space you create at home is the most delightful of places.” When choosing your meditation space, you want to lean towards a serene, private, and secure space where no one can bother you. Doors, curtains, canopy, or tent can help you separate your meditation zone and create the privacy you need for your practice. 

2. Keep It Simple

When it comes to decluttering your mind, decluttering your space is also very important. Try to minimize any destructions and visual noise. Choose a peaceful color scheme, you want it to be inspiring and not distract you, muted colors and pastels are always a good idea. Bring only things that have a meaning for your practice into this space. Thanks to Mary Kondo we all learned to let go of things that don’t bring us joy. Not only does it help to keep your space neat, but it also helps you to get rid of old energies and create room for new positive vibes in your life.

3. Make It Cozy

While there are different meditation techniques, we believe meditation should be comfortable. Use cushions, cozy chairs, bolsters, warm blankets, backrest, yoga blocks, eye pillows, really anything to make your practice relaxing. Chose natural materials and soft-to-touch fabrics to add extra coziness. You want your space to be inviting so you can’t wait to come back and meditate again. To help you organize everything you need use your baskets to store your mat and pillows, trays for candles and crystals, or altar.

4. Lighting

Depending on your personal preferences, choose a bright space near a big window or balcony with tons of natural light or candles and a soft dimmed light to create a perfect atmosphere for your practice.

5. Bring Nature Into Your Space

It is well-known that nature has healing effects on our mental health. Bring natural elements, textures, and colors into your space to create a soothing atmosphere. It can be crystals or a Himalayan salt lamp or something as simple as fresh flowers or plants (we are obsessed with this Monstera, Cat Palm, and ZZ plant greenery)

We also suggest bringing all four elements of life into spiritual space - earth, air, fire, and water, as a symbol of balance. In many cultures rituals, that combine all four elements, are believed to be very powerful. For example, when burning sage or palo santo, the earth is symbolized by herbs or wood, burning and decay - fire and air, water is brought if you are using a seashell as a bowl for your smudge bundle stick.

6. Aromatherapy

Smell has a powerful effect on the mind, and burning incense for meditation practice is traditional. You can also use crystal pyramid candles, essential oils, sage herb bundles, and palo santo.

7. Sound

Relaxing music and natural organic sounds help to set the mood for your practice. Try a calming meditation playlist or have a home fountain nearby, as the sounds of the water will help you unwind. You can also keep the technology out and instead use bells, chimes, or a Tibetan sound bowl for a healing sound bath experience.

8. Make this Space Truly Yours

To make your meditation space more personal, add meaningful items to enhance your practice: a photo, picturing a happy moment of your life, a picture of your loved ones, an inspiring art piece, a book you want to read, or tarot cards. Anything you bring to this sacred space should have a special touch on your heart.

9. Take It With You

There will be elements of your space that make it feel special. If you know you’ll be away from home and you want to bring your practice with you, consider taking something small from your space with you. Something that associates with your spiritual space, whether it’s a crystal, essential oil, journal, a photo, or sacred book. By having something familiar in your new space, your mind and body will find that neural connection and will settle into the experience more easily, even far away from home.

The whole point of meditation is to eliminate stress from your life, so creating your zen space should be anything but stressful. Once you have your dream space set up, you will notice how your spiritual practice becomes more regular and engaging. You will start spending more time with yourself and if at some point you'd like to discover yourself on a deeper level, we offer at-home retreats with mindfulness practices from different cultures to help you take a look at yourself and life challenges from a different perspective.
