Mary's Gems & Beads
Necklaces, Bracelets, Geodes, Crystal & Tarot Decks
I am originally from Scotland and have always been interested in stones for their healing properties. I LOVE ALL Crystals & Gems, so I started my own business and have a studio in Sooke. My Road travelled is to continue to learn more about the precious gems of the Earth.
Unique Hue International
As the owner of Unique Hue International, I offer Aura and Chakra Photography, Colour Therapy, Chromalive Treatments and Pet Energy assessments. I also give group presentations, information sessions, and workshops. All are intended to assist people on their journey to reach optimum health at a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level with the help of colour vibrations. I carry a wide variety of 'colour-coded' products to support my recommendations.
As a certified Chromalive practitioner and colour therapist, I will assist people in discovering their 'true colours'.
Come by my table and say hello. For a minimal fee of $8 I will tell you which colour would be most beneficial for you by assessing your chakras via the reflexology points inside your hand.
I am a Hypnotist and experienced tarot card reader completing my studies in Hypnotherapy this March. I offer a unique approach to uncovering hidden information, exploring the subconscious mind, and will guide you to find the fresh perspective you’ve been looking for. Much of how we experience our reality is based on how we identify with our emotions, and how we react to those in our environment. By observing these subconscious patterns we are able to allow the light of our consciousness to free us from our limiting perspectives. Shifting these beliefs, we allow for more joy and peace to enter our lives.
Angel Wing Readings
I am an International Medium and I have lived on beautiful Vancouver Island, in Canada, since 2016, after living in Alberta for over three decades.
One of the main reasons that I chose this move is because I have often witnessed people living in fear and worry. I decided I didn't want to be one of those people and took a daring step out of my comfort zone, to heed my call to be close to my family and the ocean, which I feel a strong connection to.
Sometimes in life we become too comfortable, too stable, too stale. Challenges are meant to bring in new energy and resources, to shake us up and keep us alive.

Alison is also a self-taught artist who began working mainly in pencils, but found her niche painting faeries in digital media. Alison's obsession with faeries began shortly after her first visit to Vancouver Island in 2002 when she purchased a deck of faerie oracle cards from a local bookstore. After collecting faeries and immersing herself in faerie culture for over a decade, Alison has been painting with pixels to create enchanting faerie and fantasy illustrations since 2010.

About Shaman Fashionista
Peruvian Canadian fashion designer Ana Jost is the founder of
SHAMAN FASHIONISTA. Founded as a way to integrate Ana's passion for fashion, her heritage and a spiritual awakening through shamanic healing practices.
Ana's discovery of her Shipibo roots led her to the Shipibo-Konibo Community of Cantagallo in Lima Peru. Cantagallo was founded by a group of indigenous Shipibo families who were part of a forced exodus from their ancestral home in the Amazon basin, pushed out by illegal logging, mining and infrastructure development, who settled in Lima in search of better opportunities. SHAMAN FASHIONISTA is proud to support,empower and collaborate with the many artists and artisans of Cantagallo.
The Answer Within
Was I ever relieved when I realized that we can change ourselves if we really want to! For so long I believed that once a habit was entrenched we were stuck that way. And it wasn't just "habits" but what I sometimes call my "Standard Operating Procedures", just those things I did without even realizing that I was doing them or that I had the choice: letting emotions rule my life, worrying too much about what everyone else thought and not enough about what I thought, and yet at the same time still being so terrified that I came off somewhat egocentric. Not exactly the balance I wanted.
Then in came hypnotherapy and it changed my mind and my life. I was actually able to "rewire" my brain to allow me to better operate in the way I desired. Hypnotherapy gave me insight into where my issues came from and how I could resolve them. It isn't magic, but it is the closest thing to magic I have experienced.
I decided to name my practice "The Answer Within" because I noticed that that was where the power of the change or transformation was, within ourselves.
I believe it is my open, relaxed and non-judgmental attitude that allows clients to feel comfortable and confident sharing with me. My insight into human motivations and behaviours grants me the ability to offer clients effective, supportive assistance in releasing negative experiences and reaching their goals by helping clients find healthy perspectives of their life experiences and themselves.

P.U.R.E. Bliss was born out of a passion for health, well-being, transparency, and protecting people, animals, and the environment: all at once. I believe that the body, nature and the world are all sacred.
Making and purchasing skincare products should not break the bank, jeopardize peoples health, the planet, or harm animals.
What I offer is wholesome food-grade ingredients that are known to preform well and be gentle on the skin. After all, a healthy body is the foundation of a healthy mind and spirit.
Oracle, Tarot Card decks and Books
I've been having spiritual experiences since I was a young girl - as early as I can remember.
Life wasn't always so wonderful though because I didn't know what to do with my gifts. I sought out teachers and mentors who could help me understand what was going on and through this I worked on healing my own wounds.
I've devoted countless hours in my education and training and am very proud to be in a position where I can now help others heal themselves.
With loving kindess, Teresa
UNIVERSAL HEALING FOR THE SOUL
Kelly - Oracle Card Readings
My name is Kelly Victoria Mitchell. I work full time as a Montessori Teacher and Early Childhood Educator. Although I have always been interested in spirituality and self-development, it wasn’t until this year that I started branching out and exploring my intuition deeper. I began the year by giving 100 free readings to people by distance, and slowly started to grow my confidence and strength in my intuition. I believe we create our own reality and these readings are guidance posts, not fortune telling. I am here only to transmit messages from spirit and the universe. My passion and purpose is simply to help as many people as possible and raise the vibration of our planet.

Jyorei, like prayer, is universally beneficial. The Light of Jyorei purifies and uplifts, there are no negative side effects. Although we have not studied this subject scientifically, it appears to encourage homeostasis. Both overactive and underactive immune systems seem to benefit from Jyorei. It calms down those who are agitated and it rejuvenates those who are tired. Jyorei is good for body, mind, and spirit.

Cassandra Clegg Health and Wellness
My mission is to help change the world--regardless of how big or small that change may be.
Too often we are unhappy with our lives, ourselves, and are chained to the past.
What if you could be free from that, and enjoy life? That is what life should be about--growth, exploration, not paying bills and struggling till we die.
Tarot cards are the bridge that articulates what we can’t always find words for. They provide a framework to more fully explore the messages from spirit and liberate insightful and intelligent direction. My unconventional intuitive interpretation reflects the openings that are most beneficial at this time. Their story spotlights your strengths and the associated energetic disruptors. Decisions/decisions, love & relationships, self-identity, finances, those who have passed, and much more!
More than anything else, I am a teacher. A teacher of spirituality and awakening, a teacher of life advancement through coaching, a teacher of elderhood in a challenging society, and a teacher of wellness through working as a healer.
I have applied and taught Emotional Freedom Techniques for over twenty years. EFT has been a powerful part of my own healing journey as well as something I am privileged to offer to the world. I have been a transpersonal life coach and mentor for many years, and am qualified as an Integral Associate Coach®. I incorporate my experience in business, government, postsecondary teaching, and the paths of spiritual growth, Eldering, and community building in my work as a coach and a healer.
I am acknowledged as a storyteller, an elder, and a leader of ceremony, and as a person who demonstrates the qualities of patience, wisdom, compassion, and understanding.
I have studied with Tom Brown Jr. and Jon Young, and have been strongly guided by the writings of David R. Hawkins, Michael Newton, and Ken Wilber. I incorporate their truths into my own work.
I have done my own Vision Quests four times, and guided Rites of Passage for individuals and groups for 20 years, including the 24-hour Solo and the four-day Vision Quest. I have taught a nature-based path of spiritual awakening and power since 1994. In 1999 I initiated the Firemaker Primitive Skills Gathering, an annual week-long learning and celebration of ancient skills and community held on Vancouver Island.
I have published numerous articles in journals and newsletters on topics such as edible and medicinal plants, spirituality, healing, tracking, and Coyote Mentoring, and am contributing author of Peak States of Consciousness, Volume 2: Acquiring Extraordinary Spiritual and Shamanic States (Grant McFetridge with Wes Gietz).
I have written a book, Born Whole: How you can heal your own pre-birth pain and how you can guide and protect your baby from conception to birth, published July 2019!

Tina - Angel Card Reader & Animal Communication
My name is Tina Kurucz and I am an Animal Communicator, Reiki Practitioner and Angel Card Reader.
I started my spiritual journey in helping others by performing angel card readings for friends and family. I enjoy doing angel cards as they assist me to connect with spirit and allow me to assist others to find clarity and/or closure in their lives.
As a child I was able to see and sense spirit and for most of my life, I have been able to connect with animals and have been able to sense what they needed.
In 2012 I heard about “Animal Communication” courses that were taught by Georgina
Cyr. After attending the courses, I found I was able to properly focus my gifts and skills in connecting with animals, both past and present. I could see and feel what they felt! This allowed me to be able to communicate information between pets and their owners. This was an amazing experience! I then completed courses, offered by Georgina Cyr, on Iridology for humans and animals. These courses allowed me to further assist into aiding people, as well as animals, on their path to health and well being.
In 2015, my quest for spiritual knowledge led me to register and complete classes in Reiki. I am now currently a Level 2 Reiki Practitioner, working with both people and animals, and I am looking forward to becoming a Reiki Master. I feel that my Reiki skills meld beautifully with my card reading and animal communication skills and help me to connect and bring clarity to my readings.
I feel that life is an amazing journey and by having an open accepting attitude of the world and all of its inhabitants is what makes this an amazing place to live.

Maximilian -Bioenergy - Energy Medicine
Hi, my name is Maximilian and I am a bioenergetic practitioner in Victoria. What do I do? I assess people's energy fields to find the root causes for their health issues, whether acute or chronic, and I correct these energetic imbalances, so the mind, body and soul can heal themselves.
Have you ever wondered what "causes" good health? Most people think of their health in terms of their body parts, for example a healthy heart, a healthy brain, etc. We are not just a collection of parts and organs, but rather a collection of about 100 trillion cells. If micro-circulation to each cell is improved, cardiac function is enhanced, strength and energy increase, mental acuity and concentration are improved, detoxification processes improve, stress is reduced and sleep improves. All cells in the body, regardless of their function are positively affected by improved blood flow.
A BEMER energy session is deeply relaxing, and you will learn what can change in 8 minutes. Come experience BEMER, and know that you can FEEL BETTER TOMORROW THAN YOU DO TODAY!
Thai Massage is an energy based healing system that combines gentle full-body stretching, twisting and traction with targeted acupressure point massage. “It’s like going to a physio appointment, stretching class and receiving a massage all at once.”
