"Mindful beads are more than an ornament. They are a way to keep the sacred close to our hearts and hands. They are symbols of growth, spirituality, belief and promise."

In this workshop we are going to approach the use of beads in all their beautiful shapes and diverse material, as a tool for prayer. 'Prayer' as a way of setting a sacred intention and not necessarily attached to any religion or belief system. 

Through the examination of practices used in different cultures throughout time, the use of beads to count prayers appears to have originated with the Hindus in India (prayer bead = mala). Within the context of Yoga and Hinduism we are going to explore how to create a mala and learn how to use it to repeat mantras - japa mala.
