THE MAKING OF MALAS

Discover the history and assembly of a mala, a meditation tool rooted in Buddhist and Hindu tradition. Each Mala consists of a guru bead, a tassel, and a strand of 108 beads, used to track the counting of mantras, prayers, or affirmations during meditation. Craft your mala in this hands-on workshop and learn how to incorporate it into a meditative and grounding ritual at home. If you wear reading glasses, please be sure to bring them to this workshop, as beadwork can be meticulous. 120 MIN | $
