A comfortable meditation seat helps the body relax. When the body relaxes, the mind follows. Our cushions are firm, sturdy, and in different heights. This way you can find the height and stability you need for a comfortable posture.
All of our meditation cushions are made in the USA -- by us, right here in Vermont. We make our Zafu (from Zen) Meditation Pillow with two natural fills: Kapok fiber and
Buckwheat Hulls, both available in the traditional (round) cushion and our Crescent Zafu. Zafu cushions are also available with a removable, washable cover, sold together or separately. A Zafu Zabuton Set provides savings and comfort for ankles and knees.
All of our Buckwheat Zafu cushions come with a removable, washable zippered cover and closed inner lining with buckwheat hull filling. Buckwheat cushions hold their loft and can be shaped to fit your needs. Use the Zabuton with the Zafu to cushion your knees and ankles.
Our Zabuton Cushion (also from Japanese Zen) is the cotton floor mat that sits under the Zafu or other Meditation Cushion or Bench as a pillow for the knees and ankles. Hand layered and tufted with 100% cotton batting for a comfortable meditation seat. Zabutons are sold with a removable, washable cover in cotton and eco-cotton twill.

Our Zabuton Mat (27" x 33") has a 4.5" loft that will settle over time and is suitable for most practitioners.
From the Zen Buddhist tradition, the Zafu Cushion, Zabuton Mat, and Zafu Support cushion are used together to provide an ideal seat for upright and comfortable sitting meditation. All pillows in the set include a removable, washable, zippered cover. Eco-Friendly Zafu Zabuton Sets are available in organic cotton and other eco-friendly covers.
All sets include one of our popular Zafu Cushions (in Kapok or Buckwheat), our 4.5" loft Cotton Zabuton Mat, and cotton filled Zafu Support Cushion for added height and versatility.
All three pillows in the Set come with a removable, washable, zippered cover.

Designed by a Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Master for his Western Students, the Gomden cushion is a firm foam block inside of a removable, washable, quilted fabric shell. Use the Zabuton Mat with the Gomden to cushion knees and ankles.
The Gomden meditation cushion is for a cross-legged posture with the knees up off the meditation mat (Zabuton). The firm foam block interior will keep its height in sitting.
The quilted fabric Gomden cover is removable and washable.
