You can register and pay for Courses and Sessions online, by phone or in person. Since the dates & times for Readings & Healings are constantly changing (as appointments are made) many customers prefer to contact the store directly to find out what is available. Once a date and time is booked we will ask you to prepay to guarantee your spot. This also entitles you to receive the lower price (listed in brackets). Appointments that have not been pre-paid may be cancelled (unless prior arrangements have been arranged).

HEALING BLESSINGS

Let us join together collectively and focus our healing energies towards the areas of our wondrous planet that have been affected by disaster or trauma.

Please send your love along with white, gold and platinum light, and the healing energies with which you work to support those in need. If you use the violet flame to help transcend non-beneficial energies or are skilled at grid-work to help repair disconnected energy lines, your assistance is also required.

Let us also remember those in need of medical attention and healing, from the little children to the aged, from the citizens to the volunteer workers, from the pets and wild animals to the devastated landscape and sacred architecture of the area.

Let us pray that the medical experts and volunteer helpers are able to gain access to all areas in need; that supplies of water, food and clothing can reach all individuals; that the monies raised worldwide will be used efficiently & effectively to support healthy, livable communities; and that the people affected are blessed with hope for the future.

And may we pray for the thousands of dear souls who suffered as well as to those who have passed to another realm.

Let us pray that the countries of the world unify together to assist with whatever means they have in aiding areas of the planet that have been devastated by natural disasters & mis-guided human actions. And that in this unification, all citizens will realize that what is most important is to move toward a brighter future with more love, cooperation, acceptance & respect between nations and peoples, including the unseen and those from multi-dimensional existences.

ODYSSEY WINS THE COVR AWARD FOR BEST WEBSITE IN 2010

COVR - Coalition of Visionary Retailers is a professional trade association that presents Awards for the industry’s best books, music and sidelines. In 2010, Odyssey was presented with the award for BEST WEBSITE. This was the first time a retail store had ever been recognized with this prestigious honour (in the past it had always been given to vendors or large publishers like Llewellyn). In addition, it was also the first time a Canadian business had been chosen.

The Award would not have been possible without the skill, talent and dedication of Leila Vey of New World Media Artist who redesigned our website in 2010 by adding new content, product categories, photos and a shopping cart. Lawren Purvis & Emylee Cuthbertson have continued to support the site with product additions and updates. At the time our beautiful, tabloid-size Calendar of Events designed by Linda Lee Purvis was also featured on the site.

Thanks to all of you for weaving your energetic thread into the tapestry of Odyssey and for playing an integral part in our community.
