Description

Mala Beads have been used as a tool in spiritual meditation and religious prayer for thousands of years by many different faiths.

Traditionally a mala—which means “garland”—has 108 beads strung together and one “guru bead,” which is larger than the rest. The guru bead is used as a place marker for the fingers to feel for the end or the beginning of the necklace for meditation or mantra chanting.

In this 2 hour workshop, jewelry maker Chris McKinley of Kinley Jewelry will show you the process used to create your own mala bead necklace. You choose your preferred materials and your kit will be assembled for you. Meditation instructor Kris Opell will then show how you can use them in your practice and guide a 30-minute meditation session using your new creation.

It is believed that natural gemstones have metaphysical properties that can assist us in harnessing our powers and energies. Whether you are interested in healing yourself from physical or emotional wounds, calming your mind and spirit, enhancing love and understanding or becoming more grounded and stable, incorporating certain earthly minerals into your daily life can be a useful tool in achieving your goals.
