How to Use Mala Beads for Meditation

 

We asked Jenn Chiarelli, the yoga teacher who leads Meditations & Malas workshops in conjunction with Silver & Sage several times a year, how a beginner could start using a mala. Here's her simple how-to:

  1. Choose a spot and sit comfortably with your spine straight and your eyes closed. Take a few deep breaths to center and align yourself with your intention.
  2. If you have one, use a mantra for this practice, chanting aloud or silently.
  3. Hold your mala in your right hand, draped between your middle and index fingers. Starting at the guru bead, use your thumb to count each smaller bead, pulling it toward you as you recite your mantra. Do this 108 times, traveling around the mala, until you once again
    1. reach the guru bead.
    2. If you want to continue the meditation, instead of passing over the guru bead, simply reverse direction and begin again.
