Just in time for Valentine's Day and in celebration of the full moon, join mala designer, Emma O'Neill to make your own mala filled with your most heartfelt intentions. A mala (the Sanskrit name for ‘garland’) is a set of beads traditionally worn and used for meditation, and most often loving-kindness and compassion cultivation meditation. Malas are typically made of 108 beads (108 being a sacred number in many Eastern cultures) and serve to keep count of the wearers affirmations by focusing their awareness and staying mindful in the present moment.
Explore their therapeutic energy by creating your own mala during a 2.5 hour workshop. Inspired by tradition, you will be guided through making your own mala. As you create, you will have the opportunity to infuse your mala with the power of your intention! A variety of materials including woods and crystal accents will be used. All mala making materials are provided.
Emma O'Neill is a senior yoga teacher & practitioner in the Ashtanga tradition and jewelry designer.
