Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade

After the massive earthquakes that tragically struck Nepal in 2015, the people of Nepal are still struggling to heal emotionally and physically.

Relief workers in Kathmandu have told us that one of the most important things we can do to help Nepalese families regain a sense of normalcy is to provide trade so that people can once again wake up in the morning and go to work. We encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.

DharmaCrafts has committed to donate 5% of the sales revenue of all Nepalese products throughout 2015 and 2016 to earthquake relief efforts. A large percentage of our donation will go to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center. Upaya's example of engaged Buddhism is inspirational to us and to our efforts. DharmaCrafts will also contribute to the Save the Children Fund.

Stillness & Light Buckwheat Support Cushion


 

Support Cushions — Customized Comfort

There is no better way to customize your comfort! Whether you need added height, cushioning under your knees when sitting in the cross-legged position, or cushioning under your ankles or hands — our variety of support cushions will provide additional comfort and flexibility.

Colors coordinate with Stillness & Light and Tibetan Splendor Collections

The rectangular Buckwheat Support Cushion is one of our most versatile cushions! It is constructed of an inner muslin cushion stuffed with buckwheat hulls and an outer 9 oz., 100% cotton twill cover with a concealed zipper. The cover can be removed for washing. 16" w x 12" d x 4" h.

Who might need a Buckwheat Support Cushion:

  • Many very flexible meditators enjoy sitting on a Buckwheat Support Cushion instead of a zafu!
  • Tall meditators who need added height can place the support cushion under a buckwheat zafu.
  • Less flexible meditators whose knees do not touch the ground when sitting in a crossed-legged position can enjoy extra support by placing the support cushion under a knee or thigh.
  • Handmade in USA.

    Size: 16" w x 12" d x 4" h

    Fill: approx 3 lbs buckwheat hulls in a 100% cotton muslin casing

    Cover: 9 oz, 100% cotton twill; concealed zipper; washable

    Your meditation cushion is so much more than an ergonomic tool. Over time, it becomes your beloved companion! That's why making quality cushions is so important to DharmaCrafts. It is our honor to make the cushion that will accompany you on your spiritual journey.

    Handcrafted in Our Own Shop

    Since the beginning, DharmaCrafts cushions have been handcrafted in our own shop. DharmaCrafts' founder, Dyan Eagles, originally stuffed each zafu herself outside on the porch at the Cambridge Zen Center, even during the cold New England winter. Now your DharmaCrafts cushion is made by a small, dedicated staff of trained craftspeople who pay close attention to fine detail.

    Experience the Quality

    Since 1979 we have handcrafted the finest meditation cushions available. In homes, meditation centers, hospitals, corporations, and schools across the country, thousands of people begin and end their day on a DharmaCrafts cushion.

    Made to Last a Lifetime

    You can expect your DharmaCrafts cushion to last a lifetime. Premium materials, double-stitched seams, and careful assembly result in a superior meditation cushion—the perfect place to rest your body and mind.

    Our Commitment to You

    You can depend on our workmanship for a consistently excellent and distinctive product.

    In 1979, Dyan Eagles, a young student of Zen Master Seung Sahn at the Cambridge Zen Center in Massachusetts, founded DharmaCrafts to fulfill her vision of right livelihood. Many years later DharmaCrafts is still fulfilling its mission of providing the dharma community with teaching and products to support spiritual practice and inspire everyday life.

    So much has changed since the early years when Dyan stuffed each zafu cushion by herself. DharmaCrafts cushions are now made in our own workshop in Lawrence, Massachusetts, by a small, dedicated staff of trained craftspeople who pay close attention to details. You can still depend on our workmanship for a consistently excellent and distinctive meditation cushion, resulting in the perfect place to rest your body and mind.

    This informative and fun video shows you why choosing a handcrafted DharmaCrafts meditation cushion is an investment that will last a lifetime. You will also learn the benefits of using a zafu (round cushion) and zabuton (flat mat) set as opposed to just sitting on the floor or on a pillow.

    Our Meditation cushions and mats are handcrafted onsite in Lawrence, Massachusetts and ship within 1-2 business days. They may be exchanged or returned within 30 days if they're not quite right. If the cover color isn't right for you, you may send back the cover rather than returning the entire cushion.
