Make + Meditate: A Mala Making Workshop

Making things with your hands is a form of meditation. In this workshop we will learn about mala beads, how to use them for meditation and intention as we string our own mala beads. All supplies provided.

Cost: $45

Mala beads act as reminders and catalysts for living our intention. Mala beads are meditation garlands that have been used for thousands of years in traditions of yoga and meditation as well as a variety of different religions. The common thread is that mala beads or “malas”, are tactile reminders that reminds us to breathe, bring ourselves back from the busy and crazy lives we lead and bring us into the moment. Making your own Mala infuses it with your energy and your own personal mantra, and can have a very powerful effect on the mind, body, and spirit. They help increase ones focus and concentration, and activate a healing response by lowering heart rate and reducing blood pressure. Using these tools helps to reduce stress and balance one’s emotions. Or infuse some good energy and intention into a Mala and give it to a friend in need.
