We are offering a one-hour course on mantra and an afternoon workshop making malas. You are welcome to attend either or both sessions! Snacks are provided.
Mantra, a Sanskrit word that means "protection", sometimes refers to a particular phrase that is recited, but also has a deeper meaning. Mantra recitation is an important – and some might say magical – aspect of meditation practice. On this course we will learn what mantra is, the basics of mantra recitation, how to incorporate mantra recitation into our meditation practice, and the good results that come from mantra recitation.
What we will learn during this workshop:
Malas or prayer beads are used when reciting mantras. For Buddhist practitioners, their personal mala becomes a blessed and meaningful object. In this practical and hands-on workshop, we will learn the traditional technique of mala-making and go home with our very own mala.
