Kindseat is stable on uneven ground Kindkushion A sustainably managed  birchwood forest

Ethically sourced and shipped

This meditation stool is made from beautiful birchwood ply which is sourced from sustainably managed forests from Finland.  

The Kindseat is shipped internationally through a courier company that operates a carbon offsetting scheme to care for the environment.

 Completely different postures:

On retreat or when you need a change or want to try a different position to help keep your meditation fresh it’s easy to set the Kindseat to a completely different height: It can be used as a meditation bench or stool (for kneeling postures) or as a low seat for sitting cross-legged.  It can also be used as a standard low stool (with a flat seat) for listening to talks.

“One of the reasons I developed the Kindseat is that I find that on a long retreat I like to be able to vary the position I sit in.  It keeps me fresh. I am not suggesting that you keep fussing about your posture. The mind loves that kind of excuse!”

Viramitra, designer

 Height range from 75mm to 270mm (3 to 10.7 inches)

In small amounts:

Either as a seat or as a bench it can easily be adjusted in tiny amounts to suit your body shape and size. Experienced meditators write that just half an inch can make all the difference to your posture and long-term comfort.   No more fiddling around with finding just the right cushion (which then collapses anyway).

If you are not sure if it’s the right size for you here’s a test.

 Easy to adjust:


 Good Looking:

The Kindseat is a specialist piece of meditation furniture designed to look good at home and on retreat.  All the major dimensions of the design are based on the Golden Ratio or divine proportion to give the most harmonious appearance

When the posts / legs are in place they cannot collapse as there are no hinges to fold or screws to pull out.  

It’s strong (tested to 20 Stone (280lbs)

The seat on its own is 875g (less than 2lbs)

Assembled it weighs just 1.1 kg  (about 2.5 lbs)

 Kindkushion available:

The seat can be used on its own or with the Kindkushion for optimum comfort and stability. Otherwise, use your favourite cushion.

The Kindkushion is custom made for the Kindseat. It has been carefully designed to give optimum support and comfort. The top feels comfortable to the skin and breathes and thanks to its non slip base it doesn’t slide around on the seat. It is shaped to fit the seat so it looks good too. Its colour is black.

For optimum comfort in your posture it is recommended that you, use a piece of foam, a folded blanket or a mat when in the kneeling positions.

If needed, the legs can even be set at different heights so you can sit upright even if the ground under you isn’t level.

Prevent the pain of poor posture in meditation

Kindseat: The meditation bench and seat that will fit you always.

I received the Kindseat on Tuesday, and just had to write to let you know how pleased I am with it in just the first week!

I was intending to use it for both cross legged and kneeling, but the kneeling position is so comfortable that I have only tried this one so far.  The adjustability is wonderful.  I am very sensitive to posture, and choose my cars based on the comfort of the driver position.  With the Kindseat achieving a balanced posture is effortless, without putting pressure on either the seat or the knees.  

I have been doing short guided meditations (I am just learning how to practice!), but have not wanted my sessions to finish since my seat arrived!  I have gone from my usual 15 minutes right up to a couple of 40 minute sessions, where I was too comfortable to stop.

Thanks so much for my Kindseat, I think I'm going to have many happy hours with it!The Kindseat arrived, and I have to say I'm stunned. It's amazingly lightweight and very comfortable. I can even comfortably sit cross-legged on it and I can't sit cross-legged. Not ever. This is going to be my regular meditation bench from now on.

Anyway, wow! Just, wow!

Easy to adjust in 3 steps: To adjust the height of the seat,

• Remove the legs by unclipping a buckle

• Set the length of each suspension loop against the height scale on the seat.

• Replace the legs and re-clip the buckle

Once the seat has been set up it will stay like that until it is intentionally adjusted again. It remembers!

Always at the right angle for you.

The variable tilt self adjusts to follow the tilt of your pelvis.  Sometimes, all your back needs if you have been sitting for a while is a subtle shift of your pelvic tilt. This design of meditation bench facilitates this. It doesn’t tilt backwards so it’s safe.
