Where to Buy Cushions

There are often questions about where to get the cushions we have at the centre.  We are unaware of anyone in Ottawa who sells them, but if you know of someone, please contact us.

The cushions are made by Samadhi Cushions in Barnet, Vermont and you can order directly from them.

They are also available from Drala Books and Gifts in Halifax who will ship them.
