About Us

Gaia Rising is your one stop on-line shop for all things metaphysical.  We began with and still are a brick and mortar shop located in breath taking Nelson, British Columbia, a culturally diverse and welcoming community located in the West Kootenay region of the Selkirk mountains (near the Rocky Mountains, for those farther away). Gaia Rising has been open in Nelson since 2005 and has steadily gained popularity with locals and visitors who are looking for cool new age stuff or the perfect meaningful gift for those hard-to-buy-for friends and family members.  There are thousands of inspirational, unique and beautiful items available; from self help books, to guided meditations on CD, to sacred statuary for your alter, to yoga paraphernalia to support your practice, to smudging supplies for your home the list goes on and on and on. 

Gaia Rising is run by husband and wife team, Vern and Laureen.  Michele and Stephanie work in the shop, Julie is busy adding inventory and Lena is building the web presence.  Sardonyx (Nyx for short) supervises from her perch in the back of the shop, but you may see her come out for tummy-rubs if you are lucky.  They are always listening to the customers and willing to look for special items.  The Gaians take great joy in finding new and wonderful treasures to add to the in-store collection.  

You can take a tour on the Gaia Rising google place page, it's pretty cool!

Drop in if you are in the area.  It is worth the trip!
