Event description
In this workshop, we'll create a set of Story-Beads, start to finish. We'll learn how to work with the beads and tell our OWN stories.

About this Event

Story-Beads are non-denominational prayer and meditation beads that help you shape and tell the story of what’s important to you.

How do Story Beads work? Why they so effective?

Story-Beads are tactile and “hands on.” They bring the sensory elements of touch and sight (beauty) which cements the practice in the real world. No longer are practices just in your head, or just in your heart. With Story-Beads they’re grounded in the physical world.

Story-Beads are a lens for focus. They act as a tangible reminder of the intent behind the practice you’re trying to establish. Remembering a new practice is the only way to make it stick.

Story-Beads are story. Story is more compelling than lists, more compelling than facts. A story engages multiple parts of the human brain and allows for more complex and nuanced meanings. It can include the how, and the why behind it. It can be nurturing. It can replace a negative story.

Story-Beads are uniquely YOURS. You choose the meaning. You choose the symbols based on your personal, heart-felt associations. You choose how to work with them based on what works best for you. You are the author, the artist, the teller, and the recipient!

Any one of these reasons alone is powerful. When you combine them all into ONE simple practice, you vastly increase the likelihood that it will become a consistent and beneficial part of your everyday life.

In this workshop, you’ll create your very own set of Story-Beads, start to finish. We’ll discuss the different styles and elements of sets, as well as how to work with symbolism. This hands-on workshop gives you access to hundreds of beads and pendants of semi-precious stones, glass, pewter, crystal and/or clay. And this mother-daughter team will offer you as much or as little support as you need to complete your personalized set! And the take-home booklet includes ideas and suggestions on ways to work with your completed Story-Beads.

About the Instructor:

My name is Deborah Globus, and I am La Padre – a non-denominational minister and a spiritual seeker who has been walking her own path for more than 30 years. With me you'll find the support you need to uncover practical, do-able spiritual practices that work for you! I offer new perspectives on old practices like journaling, ritual, and prayer, with a side of compassion and a healthy dose of (dark) humor, just to keep it down-to-earth and real!
