The Magic of Mantra | 10am – 11am
with Kate Franklin

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.

Mala Making Workshop | 11:30AM– 2:00 pm

What we will learn during this workshop:

The significance of a mala or prayer beads.
How to make a mala.
How to use a mala.

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.

*All supplies for this event will be provided
