Mantra Mala Creations is a conscious lifestyle brand that provides the highest quality sacred art for you and your home in the form of prayer beads, jewelry and dharma products. Our intention is to inspire and reconnect the world by combining ancient spiritual tradition with beauty as an expression of spirit. Each piece serves as a reminder of our true nature and as a tool for transformation. A more conscious, loving and joyful planet begins with just one person and just one prayer - you are the change we have been waiting for!
MMC first began in 1995 with Celedra’s desire to create a unique and beautiful mala as part of her devotional practice. Over the years, her husband Porter perfected the design, establishing a small and dedicated clientele of musicians, spiritual teachers and practitioners.
Now, over a decade later, Celedra Gildea and Jennifer Duoos have partnered together for the relaunch of Mantra Mala Creations.
From the beginning, Jennifer’s soul deeply resonated with the spiritual depth of Mantra Mala Creations, which seemed to touch her own well of ancient sacred knowing. Jennifer’s design and creative vision coupled with Celedra’s long history as a successful entrepreneur and Buddhist practitioner is the perfect balance needed to make our products available to the millions of us whose intention is to help create a better planet.
Recently they created Tara Malas, taramalas.com, which is a non-profit organization created in support of the Nangchen Nuns in Eastern Tibet. Celedra recently returned from Eastern Tibet, where the Tara Malas were made by local Tibetan women and then placed on the altar of one of the nunneries there. After being infused with blessings and prayers, the malas will be returned to the U.S. and sold on behalf of the nuns. The establishment of self-sustainability will continue to support local Tibetan women, as well as these very dedicated and impoverished nuns.
Mantra Mala Creations continues to grow and evolve as our expression of the sacred and with the intention for the blessing of all beings. Thank you for being here.
Celedra and Jennifer
