Description:

Prayer beads are a traditional tool used to count the number of times a mantra is recited, or the number of breaths taken while meditating. May also be used to focus on the repetitions of Buddha’s, or the name of a higher power. There are other styles of prayer beads that can be made in this workshop using this technique. The skill taught for creating prayer beads is called “knotting” and is also useful for repairing heirloom knotted pearl strands. Note: participants must buy their own supplies from a list that will be provided.
