The Power of Mantra & Mala Making Workshop | August 24

August 24, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Power of Mantra

Saturday 24 August

with Arthur Calnan

About this course

Mantra means “mind protection”. For centuries, mantra recitation has been used to attain a peaceful and happy mind by pacifying the negative thoughts that give rise to our suffering. It is the supreme method to enhance the qualities of our body and mind.

On this course, the meaning of mantra and instructions on how to combine mantra recitation with breathing meditation will be explained. This is a simple and powerful method to attain a calm, controlled and positive mind and is ultimately the cause of the supreme inner peace of enlightenment.

Many people find it helpful to have a mala, or set of prayer beads, to use when reciting mantras.  In the afternoon there will be a workshop where you can make your own mala.

Everybody welcome!
