Meditation Shawls have been used for thousands of years by many cultures and religions. They are also called prayer shawls depending on the religion or custom of the persons wearing them. The historical intent was for the shawls to surround a person during the meditation or prayer so to hold the energy that gathers as a person falls deeper into their practice. The body may have a tendency to cool down as a person meditates or prays so some extra warmth can help the body during this time and may also prevent the distractions from fluctuating temperatures. Meditation Shawls are traditionally kept in a sacred space when not being used. Where will you keep yours? Let's face it shawls are just a great item for not only meditating but to lie on, to wrap up in, or simply to enhance your yogi fashion!
