MEDITATE & CREATE: AUTUMNAL MALA-MAKING WITH MARIA RENNA
Thurs Sept 27 at 6:00pm - 9:00pm
The Autumnal Equinox is a time of harvest, transition, release and gratitude – giving thanks for all the abundance the previous months have brought while beckoning us to prepare emotionally and physically for what is to come. It is a time to find balance and clarity and, as the cooler weather invites us inside, the change of seasons reminds us of the quiet, restorative, introspective months to follow. Let’s celebrate this season of harvest and growth while creating a sacred MALA necklace which will serve as a reminder of this abundant season. We will be using gemstones associated with Autumn – think colors of the earth and leaves! There will be an abundant selection of beads from which to choose. Before stringing our malas, we will begin with a sweet meditation focused on the beauty of the Fall months ahead! Reserve in advance if possible.
