Brianne Barrett will lead you in the art of stringing and knotting your own personal 108 bead japa mala along with the meditative practice of intention setting as you create it. The workshop includes instructions and guidance in how and why to knot a Japa mala. Learn the background on traditional mantra practice with the japa mala, as well as, other ways to use the mala for personal mantra or meditation practice. Stringing a mala is a meditative practice in itself and all aspects of the ritual will be explained. All material required for stringing the mala of semi precious stones is provided and included in the price. Attendees will have an opportunity to choose their semi precious mala beads and learn the stones meaning.
Once attendees have the basic rhythm of stringing and knotting, a portion of about 20 minutes will be taken in silent mantra meditation before moving on the stringing the Guru bead.
