Mala Workshop with Sarah Widmann
Sunday, March 26th 12:30-4:30pm
Join Sarah Widmann as she guides you step-by-step to create a mala of your own. The stone for this workshop is lavender jade - a calming stone that encourages compassion and inner peace.
Invite a friend and enjoy an afternoon of light snacks and other refreshments, while you learn the meditative art of knotting your very own mala.
A ‘mala’ is a string of 108 beads with a 109th bead at the head of the loop called a guru bead. Malas can be made out of a number of natural materials including seeds, wood, shells and gemstones. Hindu and Buddhist followers have used malas for thousands of years to count prayers and enhance meditation. Now, mala beads have become popular in the West and their meaning has expanded beyond its religious origin. Each wearer develops their own unique relationship with their mala. They can be used as a daily reminder or affirmation, provide positive energy generated from the vibrations of the beads and serve as a symbol of something greater the wearer is seeking inward.
Sarah Widmann is the owner and designer of Ommala Designs, creating chakra and custom malas for inspired living.
Due to the particular stone used in this workshop, space is very limited. Sign up early to ensure your spot.
Investment: $75 per person, all materials included
