Meditation cushions are full of benefits, many of which highly depend on the type of filler used. Pardon the pun.
While it can be tempting to pick up the cheapest meditation cushion you see, it’s highly recommended to learn about the different meditation pillow fillers available and what they can do for your mind, body, and spirit. Take a look at the most popular fillers for meditation pillows and how the material will contribute to your overall experience while meditating.
For most people, meditating on the floor allows for a stronger connection with the earth which can increase grounding and the benefits of meditation. However, sitting on a hard surface isn’t always the most comfortable option and if you aren’t comfortable during your meditation, it can be hard to get into the zen of things.
Buckwheat meditation cushions are a great option as they tackle the toughness of the ground by offering a more solid and firmer meditation cushion.
Buckwheat filled meditation cushions are also great for conforming to the shape of your body, offering you a stable cushion that you can feel comfortable on. As a bonus, these type of meditation pillows feel like you’re sitting on a big pile of sand which is super grounding.

Another excellent material that is commonly used to fill meditation cushions is Kapok. It is the traditional fill that has been used for thousands of years, and is nice and fluffy. As such, they are softer than buckwheat filled meditation cushions. So, whether you’re looking to take your meditation back to where it all began by using the traditional fill or need a softer meditation cushion, Kapok meditation pillows are a great option.

Choosing between a meditation pillow filled with buckwheat hulls or kapok truly comes down to what you prefer. If you don’t mind having to re-fluff your meditation cushion and want an incredibly soft pillow that can travel with you wherever meditation practice goes, then a kapok meditation cushion may be the best choice for you.
However, if you meditate in your home and rarely anywhere else, want optimal stability to ensure a safe practice and don’t want to have to worry about re-stuffing or maintaining your meditation pillow, one filled with buckwheat hulls may be better for you.
