For eight years leading up to the Ohm Store’s launch, Nikki and Frank experienced a series of escalating physical ailments that ultimately lead to Frank being bedridden for months at a time and Nikki struggling for her own health while supporting her older brother.
Their real life experiences of tremendous physical and emotional pain set them down the path of putting their health back together. This journey taught them valuable lessons, which became the foundation of The Ohm Store’s mission and purpose.
There was something inspiring about practicing a Nepalese mindfulness ritual with a singing bowl that was hand-hammered by someone 7000 miles away. You feel connected to the artisans, real people who put thought and effort into every item they produce.
Wanting to share this feeling of connectedness with the world, the siblings began looking for different mindfulness rituals from around the world. Rituals that would help cut through the clutter, technological or otherwise, of life and allow people to enjoy the present moment.
Our purpose is to support people's spiritual development by sharing mindfulness rituals from different parts of the world. In today's environment it's easy to lose ourselves and be constantly looking for the next "thing" to keep us occupied. It's not until we take a second apart from the hustle to enjoy the simple beauty of a moment that we realize that's what we were missing all along, being present.
Our mission is to empower 1,000,000 people over the next 5 years to establish a daily mindfulness practice, using tools and methods we bring to you from around the globe. Our mission is to create a ripple effect in the way people relate to themselves and each other. 1,000,000 human beings each passing along their sense of peace, empathy and love to even just one person a day can change our world for the better. This, we humbly strive for each day.
