What you'll do

Mala beads can be used to help keep count of your mantras during what’s called a Japa meditation cycle. During Japa meditation, you recite your mantra on each bead, going around the entire mala to reach 108 repetitions of that mantra. Through Japa meditation, you will become more aware of your intentions.

Want to make one? Let me show you how to craft your very own set of mala beads from beginning to end! This version is a hand-knotted tassel mala but you can choose the 108 beads that fit your intention. There is a lot of labor that goes into a hand-knotted mala. Expect to spend 1 to 1.5 hours or more if this is your first time making a mala.

Your mala is a physical reminder of your intention! You will be surprised how attached you will be to your mala and the energy it brings. Sometimes when life gets crazy, you need to bring it back to you! Wear your mala, meditate with your mala or place it in a special place as a reminder of your intentions, dreams and where you want to go. Wear your intention and let it support your soul. They are gentle reminders that will keep you feeling like you!
Other things to note
Mala beads recently have been surfacing all over the place as a beautiful fashion accessory. But there’s so much more to a mala than a stylish beaded necklace with a bohemian vibe. Mala, meaning “garland” in Sanskrit, have been used for centuries for meditation and prayer.

This was a very special experience with Tracy and her assistant Jessica! They both brought vibrant energy and kindness to a “formerly frustrated” mala maker (me). I really appreciated their guidance and insight for future mala making of my own.

Working with Tracy, (learning how to make Mala Beads) was a real treat! Tracy was very patient, positive, kind and informative --- even when I made mistakes. Since it was just she and I, her personal touch really came through! I had never done anything like making Mala Beads and tassles.... but with her direction I am going to continue this craft and hopefully make some beautiful hand-made prayer/meditation/chanting beads as gifts. Thank you, Tracy!!!
