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 your cool, conscious friends and family members.  There are thousands of inspirational, unique and beautiful items available; from aromatherapy oils and diffusers, self help books, yoga paraphernalia to support your practice, smudging supplies for your home, through to sacred statuary for your zen alter,  the list goes on and on and on. 

As of March 24, 2020 Gaia and the arrival of COVID-19 Gaia Rising was started by husband and wife team, Vern and Laureen Barker. Vern died on July 20, 2021 and is sorely missed.  Laureen still works the shop with a great group of Gaians!  They listen to their customers and always willing to look for special items.  The Gaians still take great joy in finding new and wonderful treasures to add to the in-store collection
