Make Your Own Meditation Mala ~ on SAT 17th SEPT, 3-8pm BST
The group size will be capped at 15 participants to ensure personal attention for everyone.
In this practical group workshop I will teach you to make a full 108-bead meditation mala for yourself in one of the ways that I create meditation mala beads. The structure follows that of the traditional Tibetan meditation malas, but the mala will be contemporary in style and materials, infused with your own personal touch.
We'll spend approx. 5 hrs together (with breaks!) although it is possible we may go over a little, as I hope we'll have time for you to also make a nice drawstring pouch for your mala for safekeeping.
You can join from anywhere in the world as long as the time suits you, depending on your own timezone. Due to the nature of the teaching, the group interactions and the length of the class, and to protect the privacy of all attendees, I will not record this class, so only purchase attendance if you are free to attend Live on the day.
I would recommend everyone to source their own favourite materials (part of the whole experience!) but if you prefer to purchase a materials kit from me, you can find it >>HERE<<. If sourcing your own materials, you can watch my video notes about what is needed.
Although this is a practical workshop to learn how to make a full meditation mala, there is an overarching holistic and energetic aspect to the way I create malas. This is specifically something I want to come across in this workshop, so I will be including certain meditative exercises while we're physically working with the materials. Throughout the making stages you'll be connecting with aspects of your own inner experience, and at the end we'll complete your energetic connection with your new mala. All in all, this workshop aims to not just teach you how to knot a mala, but to have a relaxing, centering, insightful effect on you.
What participants have said:
"Thank you so so much for the brilliant workshop!"
"I absolutely loved it!"
"Prior to your class I had never knotted before. But your instructions were so easy to follow, and my stress level was so low and relaxed due to the wonderful meditations, that I was honestly amazed that I caught on so fast. Please run more classes. I will definitely be there! "
"I learned so much in such a short time."
"Your instruction was very clear and I was able to follow you, and I think it was the fastest I have ever worked. I particularly liked the way you introduced us to the concept of beading and knotting as a form of meditation. Knotting good intentions like magic spells into our creations."
"Thanks again for your generosity in sharing not only your knowledge but also deep wisdom and compassion."
A stable internet connection is needed, preferably via computer or laptop rather than phone. You need a table to work on and generally a comfortable space and clothing to spend four hours in. I also recommend your device to be attached to a charger so that it won’t run out of power in the middle of our session.
After purchasing a session, I will use the email address from your order to register you for the Zoom session, and you will then receive the joining link via email. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.
