The problems with traditional meditation cushions
1Even a soft filled cushion can feel like a concrete block during periods of long meditation, especially where the pelvic bones (sit bones) compresses the buttocks. Most of the meditators weight is concentrated in this area when using a traditional cushion.
2Continuous edges cuts into the back of the legs causing pressure on Sciatic nerve resulting in meditators legs falling asleep or intense pins and needles.
3No additional support to promote forward tilting pelvis. With most of meditators weight concentrated on the backs of the legs, Perineum and Sit bones, the pelvis will want to rotate backward causing the meditator to slouch or over compensate by strongly engaging muscles in the legs and back. Using the muscles in the front thighs to rotate pelvis forward often produces tension in the groin and at the knees. Muscles in the back and chest can also fatigue quickly when trying to keep an upright posture without adequate support that sets the pelvis at the optimal angle.

Moonleap Practice Resources
Harvey -"There are a multitude of teachings and resources articulating different meditation practices and ways to awakening. When we are truly committed to inner work we will find those teachings and practices that will resonate with the wisdom that is already waking up inside us. Many teachings and modes of practice are necessary because the propensities of each spiritual aspirant is different. Attempting to share what has been revealed during our own spiritual journey might, at best, inspire others, and at the very least, help us see where we stand on our own path."
