Mamas + Malas with Rebecca Lynch

  • kOmpose 6201 Winthrop Avenue Indianapolis, IN, 46220 United States (map)

Spend an afternoon with your kids at this 2-hour workshop and learn how to make you own personal one-of-a-kind, handmade mala that can be used in meditation and as a self-care tool.

Malas are very symbolic in yogic culture and can assist with your meditation practice. While you are crafting your sacred jewelry, you will learn a little bit about the history of malas, the various ways to work with your mala and the energetic properties of various woods and stones that can be used.

After making our malas, we will have an intention setting ceremony and group meditation with our mala beads so you can practice using your mala. The meditation will also help infuse your mala with the positive energy from the group and your personal intention.

Premade Kits will be assembled and guests can begin their malas with step-by-step instruction, as well as a diagram to finish their malas at home (if not finished during the workshop). The premade kits include 108 Red Sandal Wood Beads (6mm), A guru bead, 7 crystal chakra beads (optional), mala cord, tassel and mala bag (for storage).

Main Beads

These are the main beads of you mala. You will need 108 of them, but I suggest buying 112 so you have a few extra (e.g., Jade, Amethyst, Onyx, Tiger Eye, etc). I recommend 6mm, 8mm or 10mm beads.

Guru Bead

This is the 3-hole "T" drilled bead that is the center of your mala. The guru bead is generally 2mm to 4mm larger than the main beads and should include a smaller bead of the same type as the extension.

Marker Beads (optional)

You can optionally add a set of marker beads if you wish.

These are beads that are 2mm larger than the main beads and that break the mala up into sections. The most typical style is to place a marker bead after every 27th main bead.

Cord Color

This is the .8mm cord that you will string your mala.

Mala Bag (optional)

Supplies can be purchased online at, or any local craft store. Just be sure to check shipping times so that you will have your supplies in time!
