Creating a Sandalwood Mala Necklace
Markham/Stouffville Women’s Wellness Circle

Join us on Friday, December 15th as we learn about mala beads and create our very own piece.  A mala is simply a string of beads that are used in a meditation practice, as a reminder to pause, or to help manifest your intentions.  It is a tool to help you count mantras, remind you of your intention, and acts as a tactile guide as you sit in silence or move throughout your day.

We will be creating a Sandalwood mala necklace!  You may wish to make one as a gift for someone or make one for yourself! Deb LeBlanc will guide us in making these pieces as well as share how she uses it in her daily life and in those beautiful moments of growth, healing, serenity and meditation.  She will share how a mala necklace and bracelet is constructed and meaning behind different types beads.

You may bring your own beads or we can provide the supplies needed to create these pieces.  Our intention is to keep the additional cost at $5 per person.

Date: Friday, December 15th
When: 6:50PM – 9:10PM
Please arrive at 6:50PM so we can start right at 7:00PM. It is important to give ourselves enough time as there is never enough time at our “art” themed circles.

All supplies and instruction will be provided at an additional cost of $5.
You may also wish to bring your own beads to create the necklaces.
Cost: $20 per person at the door plus material costs.

What to bring: come comfortably dressed, water bottle, yoga mat if you want to work on the floor, blanket, and/or a cushion. Anything that will make you comfortable while you create.
