Hello!  


My name is Helen and I'm the creator of Chant Malas, an ethically-run company based in Hove, UK.


My Story:

I began creating mala beads in 2014, around the birth of my first child, when I become more immersed in my own japa meditation practice as I prepared for my first birthing experience.  I am an English teacher by day, a trained 200hr yoga teacher, Crystal Healer and mother to my two small humans.


My Aim:

I know firsthand the benefits of meditation, mindfulness and the use of a mala to help settle the mind in readiness for deeper meditation (and consequently a happier existence!), and my aim is to pass this on in an accessible way.  No faff, no hype, just high quality, consciously-crafted beads made with your meditation practice in mind.  

I aim to cater to all budgets in order to ensure that anyone that wants one, is able to own one of these sacred tools.


My Process:

Chant Malas are created to tell a story, whether that be the story of a Goddess, the story of a journey, or the story of an individual.  I begin with an intention, use this intention to guide my choice of stones, and then allow the design to emerge from there.  I use only natural stones and/or seeds that have undergone only mechanical treatment, so no dyes and no heating.  All Chant Malas are sustainably- and ethically-sourced, vegan and contain no animal products or residues.  All crystals listed in my shop are socially-conscious and conflict-free and I only work with suppliers that have this at the heart of their trade.  I do the worrying so that you don't have to

I am inspired by nature, the Goddess/SHE in all her forms, my children, words, the elements and, of course, the moon.


Seva:

I love people, and I love nature.  I believe that every action has a consequence, that we are all connected as one and that we must live as a member of a loving world, helping in some way to create this every day.  As a result, I choose a Charity of the Quarter to donate 10% of my profits to every three months.  Last quarter, my chosen charity was Ourmala, a charity supporting female refugees and asylum-seekers in creating a new life in the UK.  Please see my Charity of the Month page for more information.  Most recently, I contributed to the Teen Yoga Foundation's Sierra Leone fund on behalf of Chant Malas.
