Associated with the element air, it disperses and integrates spiritual understanding of love, compassion, and connection to everything you encounter. Air, like love, is within and all around us. We can embody this element by keeping our heart center open and our love free-flowing.

Our Crescent Cushions are shaped to support the upper leg for ultimate comfort. Our eco-wool filling provides for an extraordinary softness to help you ease into a deep meditation. Our wool filling is soft but firm enough to support excellent upright posture and healthy circulation during meditation. Other filling materials often feel hard or compress over time, whereas wool remains comfortable and resilient after years of use.

Benefits of Wool:
Comfort: Wool adds loft for comfort and resilience for sitting in meditation. We feel wool is the ideal filling for a meditation pillow. Saints and rishis through the ages have recommended wool for the meditator for the insulation it provides from subtle energies emanating from the earth, which tend to hold consciousness down. It has been found that wool zabutons allow for greater circulation to keep the legs and feet from falling asleep.
Lightweight and durability: Wool fiber lasts longer than most other fiber because it has a natural crimp that acts like a spring, constantly flexing and returning to its original shape. It is lightweight, comfortable and resilient.
Eco-friendly: Our renewable eco-wool comes from small Northern California farms that raise sheep free-range without pesticides. It is washed and processed without harsh chemicals like bleach. The detergent used to clean the wool leaves behind no detectable residue and is biodegradable.
