Beautiful, bright, warm, home-like— these are just a few of the words that describe Los Angeles’ new and inspiring WMN Space. Founded by doula and women’s circle facilitator Paula Mallis, WMN offers a conscious space for women—no matter where you are in your journey—to gather in service to their own healing through various healing modalities, workshops, private counseling, group classes and events.
Blending together her experience as a mother, her expertise as a doula, a facilitator and her extensive training in Spiritual Psychology, Mallis recognized a need for “a sacred space to connect with each other and return to the authentic, true essence of who we are as women.”
Designed by Todd Mallis of design and build firm Potter Mallis, the space features his custom lighting, as well as built-in cabinetry and seating, which accent the stunning French white oak floors. Throughout each room, one can find mid-century modern inspiration including vintage pieces and Moroccan rugs from Merchant Modern, a shearling covered chair by Stahl + Band, as well as Gainey and Architectural Pottery ceramic planters.
WMN’s also features a curated apothecary full of beauty, wellness and lifestyle items hand-selected by Mallis. The apothecary includes her line of herbal pregnancy and new mother products, as well as her New Moon Journal, Moon Juice Moon Dusts, Jiva Apoha oils, Lake & Skye aromatherapeutic fragrances, Third Eye Jewelry, Shakti prayer pouches, In Causa incense and Mt Washington Pottery, a ceramics lines also used in WMN’s custom kitchen.
But that’s not all— just a few of the many classes and services offered by WMN include new and full moon circles, solstice and equinox gatherings, ayurvedic facials, tea ceremonies, birth prep, placenta encapsulation, breastfeeding support, mama and baby yoga, children’s music class and more!
