We filmed this short mood video with the wonderful Milla Monteiro on Bali’s rough and beautiful westcoast. “You are something the whole universe is doing in the same way that a waves is something that the whole ocean is doing.”
How are Mahi malas blessed? Bali is not mistakenly called the “island of the gods”. This island’s connection to the spirit world has not been broken, even in modern times. For a Balinese person, life is an offering full of ritual and prayer.
Why meditate? Meditation has been used for thousands of years to quiet the mind and has many physical calming benefits.It can be helpful in releasing stress and anxious thoughts, and will bring you to a more visible level of awareness and consciousness.
Malas come in all different forms and shapes just like the humans that use them. They have been around since ancient times and are traditionally referred to as prayer beads. Their use can be found in various spiritual traditions that cultivate meditation practice.
