The Flexi-ball – (the amazing shape shifter), was originally developed by Tibetan monks around the 8th Century A.D. and has been used by both Buddhists and Hindus to assist with meditation. Buddhists believe in emptying the mind and being totally in the present moment. The shape shifters were originally known by the Sanskrit (ancient and sacred language of India) word “Mandala” meaning circle, community and contentedness. The idea is to gently push the wires around so that you can make many different shapes. This one was made in India.
