To Hold A Prayer In My Hand: Prayer Bead Workshop
Saturday March 24, 2018 from 9:30am-12:00noon
Have you ever been curious about the beads that various religious and spiritual traditions use?
In this workshop you’ll look at and learn about examples of a number of types of prayer beads, and choose one to string for yourself. In the process, you’ll also learn a little bit about a few contemplative prayer traditions, and how they might be helpful to you in your journey. Mindful awareness will be a part of this workshop as well, since the stringing of beads is often a prayer practice in and of itself.
All spiritual paths are welcome at Open Hearth Studio – you are invited to participate from your own tradition or perspective, and to bring your respectful curiosity about others.
Registration fee: $50. Basic beads and stringing materials are included. You may also wish to bring a bead that is special to you, for inclusion in your project.
Suitable for participants at all skill levels.
Frequently Asked Questions:
I’m not an artist! Do I need experience with art?
- That’s perfectly fine! No experience or particular talent is necessary. We focus on the process, not the product.
- What we create in this day is for us alone, like a journal or diary entry. While something beautiful MAY come from it, we don’t do it for anyone else, or to judge it for its skilfulness. This is your time.
