Reflection. Contemplation. Healing. Through a watercolor medium, the Buddha Board allows its user to exercise mindfulness in the Zen tradition of letting go and living in the present moment. Individuals recovering from grief or trauma can paint a meaningful image on the surface of the board, and reflect upon the impermanence of hardship as the image gently and slowly evaporates. Coming back to the board yields a clean slate, literally and metaphorically. Also included are five inspirational stones to inspire creativity, reflection and imagination. A perfect addition to any zen garden, the stones read Love, Courage, Strength, Laugh, & Truth. Children 3 and up may also benefit from the board's ability to help practice fine motor skills and express their youthful creativity. A gift that encourages peace of mind regardless of life's outcomes, the recipient may welcome both the good and the bad, living fully, and gently accepting each moment as it comes. Gift Includes: The Original Buddha Board with Stand and Paintbrush. Five Stones with Inspirational Messages. Features: The Buddha Board achieves a perfect balance of form and function, is environmentally friendly and will last for years with proper care. Each stone measures approximately 1.5''. Board measures 12'' x 9'' x 0.15''.
