Our unique HUM Crescent cushion is designed to provide optimal comfort so you can focus on going deeper into your meditation. The tapered crescent shape keeps your pelvis gently tilted forward to help you maintain a comfortable, natural curve in your lower back, while supporting your thighs. The crescent shape leaves space for your heels to tuck close to your body. Made with the beautiful HUM fabrics, designed specifically to subtly support your meditation with patterning on pattern, message inside message — sacred calligraphic art and the resonant treatment of our mantra, our word: HUM.

Mindfully made in Canada with 100% certified organic cotton canvas, hand filled with 100% certified organic Canadian buckwheat hulls.
Buckwheat hulls are the firm shells that protect the nutritious triangular-shaped buckwheat seed (which is then ground into flour, think of buckwheat pancakes). Once removed, the buckwheat hulls are usually discarded as they not edible by humans or animals. They are ideal as a filling for meditation cushions as they are firm, malleable and create an ergonomic cushion that conforms to the contours of your body. Buckwheat hulls are an all-natural, sustainable material. And our buckwheat hulls are certified organic, grown in Manitoba, Canada, and specially cleaned before being ready for use in our cushions. Please note that the buckwheat hulls in your cushion will settle when you begin to use it, and will eventually break down a bit after a few years of use. You can easily adjust the loft of your cushion by adding or removing the buckwheat hulls through the zippered opening.
Each HUM product is designed to inspire you and elevate your practice. We put our heart and soul into making sure you will love it, but we give you 30 days make sure. See our Returns Policy HERE.
I was hesitating between a regular mediation cushion and Crescent shape one: I got them both and figured I could share them and use them according to the mood of the day. I experimented both and found that the Crescent was perfect to encourage me to sit in the right position without forcing. Together with my Shakti Floor cushion, I enjoy very special meditation moments. My daily 'Rendez-Vous' for the pleasure of body and soul.
