Mother Mala was started by me, Mindy Kittay, in 2018. I have been making jewelry for over 20 years but was recently guided spiritually to make Malas.
I experienced some extreme trauma during most of 2017 and 2018 and eventually had to take a medical leave of absence from my position as a Library Director. Unfortunately, I was never able to return to that position but I knew that there was something else for me waiting in the wings.
I began my healing journey by increasing my mediation and journaling practices and I started attending services and classes at Agape Spiritual Center. I bought my first Mala at Agape and knew right then and there that I had to go home and pull out my jewelry making supplies and make a special healing Mala just for myself.
And I couldn't stop! Ever since that day, I have been making Malas for friends and family. I feel such a sense of peace and joy while creating these Malas and after receiving many requests for custom Malas I decided to create this website and offer them for sale.
I hope that they will bring you the peace and joy that I receive in making them!
With love and gratitude,
