Workshop - MAKE YOUR OWN Mala, Prayer Beads, Worry Beads, Tasbeeh, Gratis Beads, Rosary

Please see my website:
http://www.magicontherox.co.uk/events.html

Make  your own
Mala, Tasbeeh, Prayer Beads,
Worry Beads, Rosary, Gratis beads




Throughout the eons, prayer beads have been used by many nations for various intentions, at times without any intrinsic  religious significance.

In our workshops, you will learn the fascinating philosophies behind these revered beads:

~ Japa Mala beads (Hindu and Buddhist Mantra beads)
~ Tasbeeh (Persian and Arab prayer and omen beads)
~ Kompoloi (Greek worry beads)
~ Rosary (Christian prayer beads)
~ Gratis beads (Gratitude and blessing beads)

After the learning about them, you will make your very own and then we practice its use.

To choose one is a deep personal affair as the material, the colour, shape, structure and the feel of each must strike a chord in your heart. You will learn how to make your very own either using the beads you bring yourself, or you can purchase them at the workshop (remember you can always recycle beads from old jewellery).

You can keep your beads in hand made sacred boxes or wear them as necklace, bracelet and keyrings.
