Presenter Shawn Archer….subject Mala Beads

Join YAGD for a creative afternoon as you embrace your inner artist while you make your very own Mala!  A Mala is a string of beads often used in meditation to increase focus and enhance your meditation practice. In this workshop, you’ll learn more about the meaning of Malas, setting intentions, and how to use your Mala during meditation.  

For those interested, Shawn will also bring a variety of meditation and prayer beads from different religions, to view and explore.  This is a personal collection that began when she received her Great-grandmother’s rosary many years ago.  Many individuals have found it helpful to see the variety before designing their own set of meditation beads. 

Shawn will bring plenty of beads and all the supplies needed for everyone who attends to create one 108-bead Mala.  A donation of $10 is requested to cover the cost of providing these supplies.  If you have a special bead or charm you would also like to include, feel free to bring that as well! 

Notes: Please RSVP to Lynn or Char if you will be coming to this event.  Shawn needs to know how many beads and supplies to bring. Note that if you are making a 108-bead Mala, Shawn is requesting a donation of $10 to cover the cost of supplies.

September 9 @ 9:30 am – 12 pm | St. David’s Episcopal Church 16200 W 12 Mile, Southfield, MI 48335

To start, Karen Lutz will lead us in a relaxed yoga stretch for the first half hour and then move into a yoga discussion including current challenges and finding options.  It will be wonderful to move and discuss yoga with Karen.

The business part of our gathering will also feature Karen, who has volunteered to review and update the YAGD job descriptions currently on our website.  Check out the current job descriptions by going to Membership>Job Descriptions after you have signed into the website.  Karen will go over the suggested changes to those job descriptions.  Most of the changes have to do with moving from hard copy activity to electronic activity.  Once we all discuss and agree on the changes, we will update the website.
