Welcome to the Reciprocity Foundation.

New Design


Reciprocity’s youth helped to design this extraordinary Meditation Cushion.  The cushions will be available online now!  The cushion is part of our 10th Anniversary Celebration to support mindfulness practice for youth in shelter, foster care and supportive housing by distributing 1,000 meditation cushions and hosting free classes across NYC.   To purchase the cushion, please click here.
