Mala Making Workshop
with Kathy Cohen
Sunday, November 6th 2:30-4:30 pm
A mala (Sanskrit:मल; mālā, meaning garland) is a string of prayer beads commonly used for the spiritual practice known in Sanskrit as japa (जप). A mala is usually made from 108 beads, though other numbers are also used (54, 27, 18). Malas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or prayer.
Japa is a spiritual discipline involving the meditative repetition of a mantra or name of a divine power. The mantra or name may be spoken softly, enough for the practitioner to hear it, or it may be spoken within the reciter’s mind.
Join Kathy for this unique workshop which will include a mala bracelet making and a Japa “journey.” Your journey will begin seated in a circle for community mantra; then a short meditation will provide you space to create your personal mantra or affirmation that can be spoken within your mind.
After meditation you will receive a starter kit of 15 sandalwood beads and then choose 3 stone beads (stones have properties that may resonate with your personal mantra/affirmation), 6 separator beads and a charm to create your personal bracelet.
Your journey will continue with a slow meditative yoga flow allowing you the opportunity to silently recite your affirmation. You will end your japa journey with having deeply connected to the sacred within you, your power, your healing.
