Join in this fun and meaningful experience...


Membership discounts do not apply to this workshop, since fee includes mala making materials.


A mala, like a rosary, is a string of beads used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. For Buddhist practitioners, this ritual object is revered as precious, becoming more powerful and meaningful the more it is used. Both beautiful and spiritual, it is often carried with them or kept very close by.

Using beads of a wide variety of colors and materials, full length malas traditionally have 108 beads. During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to make a mala of your choice to use as your personal mala, give as a gift for the holidays, or donate to the center Bookstore & Shop.

No experience necessary. All materials provided.
Registration in advance online required. Space is limited.
