Merri Weis, Joan Stokes and Connie Miller were interested in healing of mind, body, and spirit through unconventional means. Each woman had the vision of starting a spiritual place that would be welcoming to all cultures. They had all been searching separately for "their place" in the St. Cloud area. And each had decided to take the same medical intuition classes with intuitive and author Carol Ritberger one winter in 2002. After class one evening the new friends went to a Chinese restaurant together. They talked non-stop through dinner about their dreams and visions. When they opened their fortune cookies, they discovered their future included each other and business success. Back in St. Cloud Minnesota, one week later, with just a name and a vision for Mind Body & Spirit, they began searching for a retail space to house their spiritual center. They found their downtown location (next to the Paramount Theatre) and began the task of starting a small business. They utilized friends and relatives to renovate the space and they searched for the "right merchandise." "We were making quick decisions because we had to, " says Merri. "We opened the store in August of 2002 just 7 short months after meeting each other. We hadn't even spent time looking at our future or a customer base. We just knew it was the right time to start this business." After several months of work and support, and a trip to India, Connie found other opportunities and she was off to find new passions. Merri and Joan became partners in Mind Body & Spirit, spending so much time together it must have been fate for their friendship to grow along with the store. Joan says, "Our families got involved in this adventure too, so it's great that we all get along so well and now we're like one family."
