The purpose of a meditation cushion is to elevate your hips off the floor allowing your lower back to stay aligned in its natural S curve. Your meditation cushion should elevate your hips above your knees. The Ananda Meditation Cushion comes in 3 heights to adapt to your body and your practice experience:
3" high = for flexible yogis and those experienced with sitting on the floor
5" high = suits most people, even if you aren't an experienced meditator
7" high = ideal for tall people, and those with less flexibility in their hips and knees

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 learned to meditate--originally in a Zen compound in Japan--this was a Rinzai training, so it was very strict, and posture was crucial. After a while, you grasp the posture--and the seated character of the contemplation. Then it is the inner slow-down, the gaze, Chinmoku no tankyū, 沈黙の探求. The search for silence.
I have a collection of meditation cushions from Hum, so I can use them to sit, meditate, gaze--and yes, work, while sitting on hard-timbered benches. My children, and grandchildren use them, with their dense fabric and compositional character--for balance, for stacking, for stretching. They're versatile, strong--and a great tool in the practice of beginning. Every. Day.
I got this for my wife. Comfortable and extremely well built.
I recently purchased a HUM meditation cushion for my home practice. It is very well made with a beautiful high quality fabric. It has made my meditation practice much more comfortable and also looks great in my room! I highly recommend getting one if you are new to meditating like myself...you won’t regret it!
I chose two Hum Ananda meditation cushions for me and my 16 year old daughter. You would think any cushion would do to meditate? I would recommend you to try this one and you will probably change your mind. The texture is perfect, not too hard neither too soft, the size is just what you need, the handle to carry it around is very smart, we take it in a different room each time according to the time of the day and wherever the sun is, I event sit on it during my long professional calls. My daughter adopted it for her meditation initiation which now became a daily routine. You can even travel with it anywhere you go. Perfect size and feeling of comfort. Thank you HUM so thinking of developing these unique products.
I love my new meditation pillow. It looks great in my newly created and inspiring studio. Thank you Sarah for your ongoing care and attention to detail in sourcing materials and customer service.
