About Our Cushions About Our Cushions

We know how important it is to have the right seat for meditation, and we also know that no two meditators are alike. That is why we have developed a line of cushions to help you sit more comfortably according to your particular needs. From the classic kapok zafu to our newest addition, the Cloud, all of our cushion shells and inserts are made in the US within a 250-mile radius of our Monastery, which keeps our transport-related energy use low. Our suppliers work hard to minimize waste during the manufacturing process, and we do the same when assembling our cushions.

All of our cushions were tested, improved upon, or developed by monastics, Monastery residents and other Buddhist practitioners with thousands of combined hours of meditation experience. If there's anything we've missed, if you'd like to give us feedback, or if you have questions about how to select the best cushion for you, give us a call. We always enjoy hearing from our customers directly.
