Mala beads are an ancient tool that were developed to keep the mind focused during the practice of meditation. A mantra is a word or series of words chanted aloud or silently to invoke spiritual qualities. The two join together when practicing Japa mala (using a mala to count the repetitions of mantra chanted). In this workshop you will create your own Mala from traditional rudraksha seeds and semi precious stone beads. We will then learn a mantra to use with the mala, to aid your meditation practice.
