What fun

Bought this for my granddaughter and it is the first thing she grabs when she gets up and the last thing she puts down at night


Very Relaxing Tool

I cherish my meditation time each morning and this is a fun way to let go of my thoughts without having anything at all I am trying to focus on. I just let the brush go where it wants and it comes out pretty cool. And let me just say that I am not at all creative artistically. If it doesn't come out looking good, wait a few minutes and it will be blank and ready for you to start over.

Now, I want one.

This is such an interesting board. It was a gift for my sister who is artistic and also a special ed teacher. She thought it would be great to have in her classroom.

Everyone at the party had to have a chance to 'play' with this board. From the kids to the adults, everyone seemed to enjoy expressing themselves with it, then watching the image disappear. Or someone else would come along and add to it. It was fun.

I bought it for my 13 year old daughter for Christmas but I use it quite often. I keep it on the kitchen table and enjoy writing inspirational quotes, scripture and doodling!More > < Less

About Buddha Board

Create, Reflect, Relax

It can be hard to live in the moment when we’re always juggling tasks, scheduling activities, and playing catch-up. The Buddha Board lets you slow down, let go, and savor the enjoyment of creating.

The inventor is Eric Thrall, who envisioned a way to help people embrace the Zen concept of mindfulness. His drawing board is both a meditative product and a doodling tool. When you paint on the Buddha Board surface with water, the image darkens. As the water evaporates, the artwork slowly fades. What’s left is a blank slate—literally and figuratively. When the water disappears, so do the feelings and emotions that went into the artwork, leaving the artist with a clear mind, Eric says.

Learning to appreciate change and to value the present is important for all ages. The Buddha Board is a great tool for unleashing creativity without worrying about perfection or permanence. You can create artwork or simply doodle or practice brush strokes. The art may be fleeting, but the enjoyment lingers.
