Mindful Beads by Alice Peck

Malas: Their Meanings, Mantras, and Prayers to Bring Inner Peace. Includes 20 projects to make your own beads.

About the Book
Strings of beads are universal to all peoples and beliefs. They're given many names - mala, rosary, masbaha, komboloi, prayer beads - but no matter the culture or context, they're a tangible symbol of connection. Beads can tell a story, and can inspire us, celebrate someone or something we love, or help us work through a difficulty.

They can be made from wood, clay, crystals, bone, shell, glass, metal, plastic, paper, and much more - even coins, buttons, seeds, and pasta. And the meanings are as varied as the materials. It's not so much what beads you string but why and how you string them. There's symbolism in the type, number, materials, and source of the beads and the words that go with them - mantras, prayers, promises, affirmations, and meditations.

On the Back of the Book
In Mindful Beads, discover the stories and meanings behind 20 types of beads, including malas, prayer beads, rosaries, worry beads, and more. Learn how to instill them with significance as you string your own beads, and then incorporate that meaning, protection, and promise into your life.
