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 Fall River, 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.
