MALAS, MEHNDI, & MANTRA
Blue Moon Herbals
The Tinniest Warrior
In this workshop you will have the opportunity to create a custom Mala inspired by your own personal intentions. Meditating on a mala brings peace of mind.
The mala is a traditional garland of 108 beads or seeds used for prayer and Meditation & Mantra in the Buddhist & Hindu traditions. There are so many explanations out there for the mystical #108. Here are a few of our personal favorite explanations:
•108 is divisible by the sum of its digits
•1 stands for spirit or your god/goddess source, 0 stands for emptiness or completeness in spiritual practice, & 8 stands for infinity or eternity.
• The numbers 9 & 12 are considered by many to be very sacred numbers, and 9 x 12 = 108
• The Heart Chakra: The chakras are intersections of energy lines & are said to be 108 energy lines converging to form the heart chakra.
• Time & Feelings: Some say that there are 108 feelings, with 36 being related to the past, 36 to the present, and 36 to the future
Each person will make a Mala Necklace using the grounding sandalwood beads (provided by the monks from the Drepung Gomang Monastery) and chosen gemstones, amulets, charms, tassels & spacers.
The ancient art of henna is an all-natural and organic way to promote healing, mark an occasion, and enhance the natural beauty of the human body. Henna is made with the crushed leaves of the hina plant and Essential oils which creates a nourishing and cooling paste to adorn the skin with. Artist “The Tiniest Warrior”, Mariah Almerez, creates each design uniquely and intuitively to serve as a blessing and reminder of positive intention to each recipient. The special experience between artist and recipient will leave you feeling relaxed and beautiful.
Please bring a journal and pen if you wish to take notes.
