[ARCHIVED] History of Prayer Beads at R.H. Stafford May 4

Prayer beads

Join us from 10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, May 4, at R.H. Stafford Library to learn about the history and use of prayer beads, and to make your own prayer bead bracelet. The word bead comes from the Middle English word bede, which means to pray. The workshop will include discussion about the origin and development of prayer beads throughout the world and how they are being used today. Each person will create a bracelet using a wide selection of beads including gemstone, glass and metal. The Circle of Life Meditation design was created by Sue to demonstrate the principles of spiritual geometry that are present in many cultures. Each person will have an opportunity to talk about their bracelet and how they plan to use it. The workshop will close by using the bracelets together. All Supplies will be provided. Class limit:14 students.
