The key to a more balanced life begins wherever you are, with the help of Buddha Board. This screen-free mindfulness tool is here to ease your mental caseload through the soothing act of painting with water. As you become centered in the moment you’ll feel the tension drop away, your mind clear, and your inner positivity start to make a comeback.

and a clear mind, ready to create a whole new masterpiece. Buddha Board is environmentally friendly as it only uses water – no ink, no paint, no chemicals – and it will last for years with proper care.
