Made in the UK:

This piece of meditation furniture is professionally manufactured in the UK on a computer controlled machine and hand finished by an established company that also produces furniture for young people with special needs.

Adjusts to stand firm on uneven surfaces so your seat won’t rock or wobble.

The independent legs automatically follow the surface they are on. This means that the bench is stable even on thick mats. (To get the full range of tilt the legs need to be vertical)

You can use it on uneven ground.

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.

When you are meditating, sitting in a good posture is important . This is only possible with a seat that has a height and angle that is right for you.

The Kindseat can easily be adjusted in large and small amounts to suit your body shape, size and flexibility as it changes in a week or over the years.

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.

Kindseat Hi

A real alternative to kneeling or sitting Cross legged


 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.

 Height range from 75mm to 270mm

(3 to 10.7 inches)

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!”
