Hand knotted with care
“What is the process of making a mala like?”
“The making of a mala is a meditation in itself. The stringing and knotting is done when I can sink into a peaceful place and open my heart to God. It keeps my hands busy and my mind calm. While knotting, I think of the ways the mala might be used and who might find the particular one I am currently making.”

Daniel: “When we first met in person a few years back, I remember you were singing and sharing the Hanuman Chalisa. How did you first connect with chanting, and why has it become so significant for you?”
Pascale: “I was introduced to chanting at a yoga retreat in 2008, where “Om Namah Shivayah” by Krishna Das was playing on CD. I was moved beyond belief and knew I had to get more of this. Then KD came to my town and I experienced the bliss of singing in community. I asked him afterwards how I could get started chanting and he said to me, “Just sing from your heart.” And that's what I did. I think it saved my life, to be honest. I was suffering from depression and it helped me connect to my heart and find myself. The changes it helped me through were nothing short of amazing and I am grateful for the grace of finding my way to this practice.”
