Meditators of a certain ilk simply would not be without their mood-setting chimes to bracket the beginning and end of a “sit” wherever their corporeal bodies happen to be. Yes, of course there’s an app for that, but that is not a very Zen-like approach. Better you should take along the new Zenergy Chime Solo Mini from Woodstock Chimes, providers of a vast array of gorgeous chimes and gongs, all tuneful. (You can listen to the sound of each model on their website). The Solo Mini is a single 5-inch-long silver-polished aluminum solid rod permanently nestled in a cherry-finish ash wood cradle. Lightly strike the rod with the included black wooden mallet and you are ready to focus, not focus, whatever. Namaste.
Woodstock Zenergy Chime Solo Mini (ZENERGY1) is $8.95 at www.chimes.com; 800-950-2754.
