Lifelong Malibuites and besties Jen Rossi and Willow Kalatchi have opened their first concept space, The Mindry, providing an easily accessible, non-denominational spiritual space, with world class guides leading you through meditation, sound baths, breath work and mindfulness workshops.
Lifelong Malibuites, Rossi and Kalatchi and been friends since grade school. Both spent over a decade managing high-end retail stores in Cross Creek and have since ventured on to be independent, successful business owners in their own right. Rossi is the owner of Jen’s Pirate Booty, a successful clothing company and Kalatchi is travel curator with her travel company “The Art of Refined Travel”. Now they have come together to create The Mindry, a much needed spiritual space after the trauma of the Woolsey Fire devastated Malibu last year. Rossi and Kalatchi both felt a meditation studio was desperately needed in our community to help the healing process and is an essential practice to take care of the soul, quiet the spirit, and get grounded with the high demands of daily life.
