Malas + Gemstones
Amplify your mantra or prayer practice.
Sacred Sound—or mantra—is traditionally practiced using a strand of prayer beds, called a mala.
A mala relieves you of the distraction of counting. (It has exactly the number of beads for repetition: 108, 54, 27.)
It also enhances and amplifies the vibrational attunement of your practice through the properties of its materials: semi-precious stones, glass, wood, or sacred seeds.
“Prayer beads do not belong to one culture or spiritual tradition. They span continents and time. They are a symbol of Devotion. They are a reminder to return to [your connection to the Divine], to come home to the moment. They are circles of protection for the wearer and solace for those who spin the ancient rosary across the hand.
“There is a current of sacred energy that binds us. Call it Shakti, Consciousness, the Holy Spirit or Prana, we carry the current of the Divine and it is Electric. It is this electricity that connects us. Like many beads strung on one sacred thread, the current goes through each one of us.”
–Prana Devi, Creator of Electric Mala
That is the practice of mantra itself—connecting to and cultivating a string of sacred energy, a strand of wisdom, a centering of peace.

Your Host: Rebecca Prien, Founder of Ompreneur
I’m Rebecca Prien (Rama Devi), wisdom teacher and mystic, essayist and artist, attorney and business owner.
Mantra, the practice of chanting sacred sound, is my favorite go-to practice for its power to quiet and focus the mind. Sound in general and sanskrit in particular, has a deeply harmonizing effect on matter, include us. I hear divine wisdom, by listening down to the vibration. Mantra is a powerful access point for this wisdom and transformational work. I use it in my own practice and with clients to heal and transform the patterns that seem as-of-yet untouchable and to attune to our intuition and divine wisdom.
You have access to this tool and this wisdom yourself. I’m excited to bring you this workshop to further enhance and amplify that experience through a mala and the metaphysical qualities of its materials.
Special Guest: Prana Devi, Creator of Electric Mala
Since Prana Devi designed her first mala in 2015 she has been creating personalized and unique prayer beads, which she discovered is a luxurious practice in which her mind rests in the lull and rhythm of creation. Designing malas has become a cherished occupation.
Prana Devi is also a certified yoga teacher (CYT-200) and continues to study in the Kali Natha Yoga tradition at Kashi Atlanta with her beloved Teacher, Swami Jaya Devi Bhagavati. Visit electricmala.com for perspectives and inspirations from Prana Devi on uniting Yoga practice with daily life.
