Mala Making Workshop – November 2, 2017
November 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$40
Prayer beads have been used since ancient times. And every faith seems to have their own style. But, the oldest accounts of using beads for meditation, prayer, & spiritual practice comes out of India & its use of the Mala.
Now even though malas have become very popular fashion accessories, many people don’t know the true meaning behind their long history, their sacredness, or how to use them in their meditation practice.
So, come join us for a fun afternoon during which we will learn all about:
1. The origin & history of prayer beads;
2. The structure & symbolism of the Mala;
3. The symbolism of the most traditional beads used to make a mala;
4. How to use a mala for meditation.
The best part is EVERYONE will get to tap into their creative energy & construct their OWN CUSTOM MALA.
You will be able to choose from a selection of many different sacred & specialty beads & gemstones from around the world which will give your malas their own personal meaning & unique style. And if you have a special/scared pendant or charm please bring it with you as it might just become part of your mala. You’ll be surprised how your meditations will soar to a new level when you begin to use your own custom mala for your spiritual practice.
COST – $40.00
