Learn how to make prayer beads out in Virginia City

Eleanor Wiley, author of “A String & a Prayer: How to Make and Use Prayer Beads” will present a contemporary prayer beads workshop April 22. The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Old St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Virginia City.

Advance registration is $45 and includes lunch and beads. Registration should be sent to Jody Lediard at P.O. Box 681, Virginia City, NV 89440. Make checks payable to St. Paul’s. For information call (775) 847-9305.

Participants come together to a safe and sacred space to make personal prayer beads. Together they look at traditional prayer beads and their relevance for prayer in their lives. Participants uncover personal prayer practices and their connection with the Divine. Time is spent in quiet meditation and quiet activity. The group investigates beads and symbols as a metaphor for life.

Participants are encouraged to bring important beads and symbols from their life collection to be incorporated into the prayer beads. The meaningful events in each person’s life are considered as beads are chosen to represent “life as it is.” As a group everyone comes to understand the innate wisdom that they share with all beings. Each participant will complete personal prayer beads during the time together.

Workshop fees include the cost of basic beads and materials needed to complete personal prayer beads. Tools and equipment will be supplied. Special beads and symbols will be available at additional cost.

For further information contact the Rev. Elizabeth Tattersall at (775) 588-7558 or e-mail flcg@nanosecond.com or the Rev. Jody Lediard at http://www.prayerbdzs.com. Scholarships are available. Inquire for details.
