Collection: How to Select a Zafu

We stand by our meditation cushions because we sit on them every day.

Monastics living at Zen Mountain Monastery developed our line of meditation cushions, including our patented Mountain Seat Zafu* meditation cushion. All of our cushions are made to the highest-quality standards within a 250-mile radius of The Monastery Store and come in Black, Navy, Burgundy and Sage colors. Need advice on choosing a cushion? Check out our chart below, or read our blog post about Choosing a Meditation Cushion.
