Momma Bear Apothecary

Katie is Momma Bear Apothecary.  momma bear apothecaryShe makes things, sells things, teaches things. She is teaching and selling her goods at a retail start-up which appeals to the inner hippy in all of us. The casual square footage is dotted with watery art pieces, stones, wood, herbs and oils.  I hope Lotus of the Moon enjoys retail success. They have started small but judging from the traffic I saw today, they are filling a niche in this community.

It was at Lotus of the Moon that Katie, my niece, taught me (and others) how to make a mala bracelet. I didn’t really understand what a mala was but I do now. The mala necklace is a well-known mediation tool.  Katie started making mala bracelets, sharing with us that she simply doesn’t have the time to meditate with a full mala necklace.  The mala bracelet became her go-to.

Hands and bracelets pictured were, I believe, from today’s class.

Now I will simply have no excuse not to meditate. I don’t have a mantra yet but dang, I bet I can come up with something.

Aaahhhh.  I’m feeling better already!
