  • Awaken your inner goddess

Sunday, 1-5

$175 investment

Traditionally a mala—which means “garland”—has 108 beads strung together and one “guru bead,” which is larger than the rest. The guru bead is used as a place marker for the fingers to feel for the end or the beginning of the necklace for meditation or mantra chanting. In this hands-on workshop, participants will create their own mala then journey to attune it to one of the energies of the Goddesses of Avalon.

Make your own mala:

• Choose your gemstone beads.

• String the beads in a community.

• Let the creative process be its own mindful experience.

• Bless your mala with an intention.


Participants will have a choice of the following types of crystal sets*:

  • Amazonite 

  • Amethyst

  • Carnelian

  • Labradorite

  • Lapis Lazuli

  • Matte-finish Quartz

  • Quartz with inclusion

  • Rose Quartz

*Limited numbers per option. Mix and matching is not an option unless coordinated amongst participants.

Like everyone else I am many things. A daughter. Sister. Mother. Wife. Friend. Artist. Seeker. I have long been drawn to creating beautiful, functional, wearable art from natural elements. Much of my inspiration comes from the vibrations of the earth. Vibrations I feel in my bones. I believe we are all called by the vibrations that will serve us to our highest good, and that we are doubly blessed if we listen. In this workshop I would love to help you create a mala necklace with the elemental vibrations that are calling you.
