Dear Ones..
We are joyful to invite you to attend our first exciting Community Luminary of the year. Her name is Silvie Sachsen-Coburg who resides in Austria. Silvie is an artist,(and mala maker) doula, initiate in devotion, hatha and yin yoga teacher, guardian of her land, talisman maker, mother, wife, women’s circle holder, wild herbalist, keeper of the mysteries of the Wheel of the Year, sweat lodge apprentice, joy bringer. In this session we will explore the use of mala’s in our sacred Priestess practices and be given a mala meditation to work with.
When Silvie entered the 13 Moon Mystery School, the Muse within her received a clear vision for the creation of sacred prayer beads – malas for celebrating each unique, archetypal moon. Each mala is a tool of devotion, a tactile joy, an anchor to ground into the frequency and colors of each archetype using the crystals and mantras that are aligned with each. She followed the path of curiosity and excitement to create these offerings out of her devotion to the Goddess. She handcrafts sacred malas in coherence with the archetypes of the Divine Feminine.
For those of you who may not be familiar with the tradition of malas, here is a short definition. A mala is a loop of 108 beads with a “guru” bead and a tassle. The beads are made of materials like seeds, wood, stone or crystals. Silvie uses 8mm gemstone beads with the crystals that have been listed by Ariel in The 13 Moon Oracle and The Alchemy of Ecstasy for each archetype. She strings them on silk and makes a knot after each bead that is infused with prayer. Mala making is a sacred practice of deep trust and devotion. Each one is a meditation, a heart offering, an act of surrender where she enters a deep meditative state of emptiness, allowing her hands to become a Divine channel for infusing the currents of Divine Mother into the malas.
Join us to explore this wonderful exploration of malas.
