Mindful Beads, Gathering.



Over the week-end my friend Joyce had a gathering of women at our friend Maggi's home in the mountains.

Maggi has a delightful home with beautiful landscaping and interesting, 


whimsical additions in various locations.



Joyce led us in a meditation and then each of us told a little about what we want to feel and accomplish with our Meditation- Mindful Beaded Bracelets.

Then we dove into the variety of beads, there were several boxes. We were to choose what felt good to us, perhaps a feeling that the stones shared or a tactile impression we had when feeling a bead.
We then put them together into bracelets we could wear.

When we meditate we can feel the different beads, and keep focused on what our meditation means to us.

Our brain will always jump around, but with practice this is one way to have a little direction to our thoughts, or no thoughts.

Would you like to see what I made?





This reminds me each day, to be grateful, forgiving, and to live in Harmony with Life.

  1. This sounds like a perfect weekend. I've been trying to meditate more often after getting out of the habit last year. It definitely helps you feel grounded and able to move forward with your art.
