The third chakra, called Manipura, is located at the navel. Manipura means “lustrous gem of the city,” and is associated with the element of fire.
This energy center is associated with your self-esteem, sense of purpose, individual will, digestion and metabolism. When consciousness moves freely in this center, you are empowered by transformative energy.

Benefits of Wool:
Comfort: Wool adds loft for comfort and resilience for sitting in meditation. We feel wool is the ideal filling for a meditation pillow. Saints and rishis through the ages have recommended wool for the meditator for the insulation it provides from subtle energies emanating from the earth, which tend to hold consciousness down. It has been found that wool zabutons allow for greater circulation to keep the legs and feet from falling asleep.
Lightweight and durability: Wool fiber lasts longer than most other fiber because it has a natural crimp that acts like a spring, constantly flexing and returning to its original shape. It is lightweight, comfortable and resilient.
Eco-friendly: Our renewable eco-wool comes from small Northern California farms that raise sheep free-range without pesticides. It is washed and processed without harsh chemicals like bleach. The detergent used to clean the wool leaves behind no detectable residue and is biodegradable.
