Have you ever thought your mind was too busy to sit still long enough to meditate? That was my experience until I learned about Prayer Malas and how they help to still the mind through chant and affirmations. In this workshop, we will learn some of the history and background behind Prayer Malas and how to make our own prayer mala to enhance our spiritual practice. The act of crafting a mala is also a calming experience and sharing it with other people is quite special.
I have been teaching and giving workshops on how to make and use Prayer Malas for the past eight years and I am so excited to bring this experience to the Southern Oregon Coast.

I woke up one morning this past week with this mantra chanting in the back of my mind. I grabbed my mala and joined in. It is a good mantra for health and healing. I am sending this out to everyone. May Health and Healing be evident in your life and in the lives of your loved ones. We are a reflection of Divine Perfection! Namaste.

Do you have a mala that needs to be repaired? This mala, purchased elsewhere, was sent to me for repair. It was missing 4 beads and I was able to provide an alternative including a new tassel.
The mala took on a new look. The next step is to make the tassel. The tassel is also where the main knot hides to secure all the beads. When repairing a mala, I assure that it is “strung with love” and it is returned in a condition that honors the practice for which the mala is used.
The completion of a mala. The tassel is important as it is equated to enlightenment. It is the gathering of chanted mantras, where vibration and bliss resonate. A perfect ending for a Summer Solstice evening… Strung with Love!
Let me know if you have a mala that needs to be Restrung with Love. Cost does vary depending on time and materials.
