Another December means the Bay Area RISD alumni gather at Fort Mason to sell their wares to eager holiday shoppers. The event also brings the RISD family together in a sort of informal reunion. CritBuns made a splash, selling out of the inventory. This year many of the customers were yoga and meditation students. Having tried zen practice recently, I concur the buns do make a great meditation cushion. By propping your hips off the ground, the foam cheeks also take pressure off your tailbone. This in turn encourages better posture, which is key to meditating.
Thanks again to everyone who attended, and to the many people now enjoying enlightened sitting.
