Hello! my name is Heather Mudry and I am the creator and owner of Mama Malas. I love that first cup of coffee in the morning, the smell of bonfires and restorative yoga (no cardio for this gal). My not so secret guilty pleasure is watching teen dramas that I am really just too old to be watching.
I made my first set of mala beads when I realized how easy it was to be distracted from the mother I wanted to be, by the unimportant things in life. I wanted my son Owen to grow up with a wonder for nature. With memories of spontaneous day trips to the mountains and an appreciation for living in the moment and connecting with the people that are right in front of him. Instead, I found myself spending too much time on things that didn't matter and failing to be truly present with my family.
I needed to create something to bring me back to my core intentions and desires, and since I’m such a tactile person a mala was the perfect solution. Every day when I would put it on I was reminded to meditate for a moment on my intentions. It then served as a reminder throughout the day whenever I felt it tap against me.
It can be so easy to be distracted by the unimportant things in life, especially as a mother. With digital devices taking over our lives, it can be hard to put everything aside to just play with our kids, take some time for ourself, and to remember that we are spiritual beings.
As a society, we feel the need to fill every moment with distractions, and for me, mala beads brought me back to the moment and reminded me that I want to be able to sit with my son without checking Facebook, or compulsively researching something online. They helped me disconnect, go inwards and live in the moment.
From your mala beads that connect you to your meditation practice, to your gemstone bracelets mindfully chosen each day as a reminder of the woman you want to be and the traits you want to model for your children, my intention is that your Mama Malas give you the courage to follow your instincts, create a life and parenting style that work for you, and keep you aligned with your goals.
I want you to live in the moment, drop what is unimportant to play with your children and go on fantastic and wild adventures.

Your Mama Mala is the perfect accessory to take your desires and intentions and turn them into something tangible, touchable and real.
