"MA LA LA LA LA" Holiday Mala-Making Workshop with Maria Renna Thu, Dec 7, 2017 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Come connect with your inner peace and creativity while creating a unique piece for yourself or a loved one!

A mala (in Sanskrit, the word mala simply means garland) is a meditation tool which has been used for centuries. Worn, it is a beautiful representation of your yoga or meditation practice. In this workshop, we will explore different gemstones whose energies can support us during the holidays and throughout the winter months. An ample selection of these stones, as well as many others, will be available to create with. We will begin with a short meditation focused on the spirit of the holidays and in preparation of the stillness winter invites. During our meditation, and while creating, we will imbue each creation with our own special, personal intentions. Each season has its own special qualities .... let this sacred jewelry serve as a reminder of the beauty winter brings.

Share the joy of the season with others and leave feeling more connected, creative and calm. ♥

NO ARTISTIC TALENT OR MEDITATION EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY!

All materials will be supplied and you will have a choice of beads and pendant. Please register by Thanksgiving to insure you get the very best choice!
$100 investment.
