Austin Den Meeting & Bead Workshop

Please join us for a fabulous CEU opportunity and workshop on beading! Deann Acton, LMFT, ATR-BC and Deanna Miesch, LPC-S, ATR-BC will be presenting.

Beads have been found dating back nearly 40,000 years and have been made from all sorts of materials such as pebbles, shells, teeth, claws, clay, glass, and more. The word "bead" comes from the Anglo Saxon words "bidden" (to pray) and "bede" (prayer). Historically, beads have been used as a form of money, as jewelry to bring wisdom and fortune, and as both a spiritual aid and a tool for meditation.

In this workshop, participants will:
- Learn about two distinct forms of bead making - paper beads and felted beads
- Become skilled at making these types of beads
- Learn how beads can be used as a meditation and gratitude tool
- Discover how beads can aid in transformation
- Understand how beads can be used in the context of therapy
