Making Malas

Join artisan and meditation guide, Kristin Goss, for a mala infused workshop. Learn the ancient history of malas and its technique in a guided meditation and a session making your very own! Take away your own mala to incorporate in your meditation practice outside of the studio.

MORE ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

A mala is a string of beads that can be used in a meditation practice. This is an easy tool for beginners as well as an extra boost to an existing meditation  practice. In this workshop you will immerse yourself in this meditative and creative exercise of beading and knotting. Malas are beaded necklaces or bracelets that consist of a tassel, a 'guru' bead, and a fixed number of meditative beads that are used for practice or worn as an accessory. 

We will explore this ancient art together and understand how to use and incorporate these in our practice and in our daily life. We will also personalize each mala with our very own intention. This is a fun way to unleash your creativity and harness your inner knowing. 

Sunday, September 27th, 1:00-2:00PM
$75 - Cost includes everything needed to make your Malas and a guided meditation.
