Our Spring/Summer Calendar-of-Events is now in store if you want to pop in to pick one up (those who are on our mailing list should have received their copies last week). Since the dates & times for Readings & Healings are constanlty changing (as appointments are made by other customers), it is best to call the store directly to find out what is available when you are ready to book. Once an appointment is made your sessions must be paid for at the time of booking to guarantee your spot. Appointments that have not been pre-paid may be cancelled (unless prior arrangements have been arranged).



This month we offer our Members 10% off our wide selection of divination decks. Divination is the practice of seeking knowledge with the use of oracle or tarot decks. Divination readings access our subconscious to find answers that aren't readily available to our five senses. New and favourite decks arrive every week at Odyssey so come in and browse our unique selection.

If you are not a Member and would like to take advantage of our Monthly specials, $5.00 bonus vouchers and  this month's free book, sign up today. An annual membership is only $10.




We have retired some of our CD demos and cleared out some of our inventory. For every $5.00 you donate (100% of which will be donated to the Charities we support) you will be able to choose a free CD. Stop by early for the best selection.

Let us join together collectively and focus our healing energies towards the areas of our wonderous planet that have been affected by disaster or trauma, including the recent power outages and damages from the ice store that affected hundreds o thousands of people in Southern Ontario.

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.


Every year since 1998 I've attended a show in Denver, Colorado called the International New Age Trade Show (INATS). This is where I've had the pleasure of meeting some of the wonderful authors whose books we carry (including Ted Andrews, Silver RavenWolf, Richard Webster, Louise Hay, Doreen Virtue, Wayne Dyer, Gregg Braden, and more). There is also an industry Association present at this show called COVR - Coalition of Visionary Resources - and each year they present 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 was chosen.

The Award would not have been possible without the skill, talent and dedication of Leila Vey of New World Media Artists. A few years ago she took on the arduous task of totally redesigning our website and adding new content, product categories, photos, and a shopping cart. In addition, Kerrie Christensen, Lawren Purvis & Emylee Cuthbertson have helped support the site with product additions and updates.

And since our Calendar of Events is such an integral part of our site (and our store) we also want to acknowledge and thank Linda Lee Purvis for her creativity and hard work in providing Odyssey with a fantastic tabloid-size, picture-rich, full-colour format.

The Award itself is a large marble obelisk which is on display at the store for you to see.

I want to thank each and every one of you for being an integral part of the Odyssey community and for allowing me to share our wonderful news with you.



The following is a wonderful article that was written by East of the City Magazine columnist, Linda Lee Purvis.

An inviting, celestial sun shines above the entrance to Odyssey Books & Resource Centre in the Courtyard in Pickering Village. It radiates with affirming warmth, welcoming patrons in search of illumination for their path to self-discovery. Inside its doors is a galaxy of specialty books and tools to guide spiritual travelers along their journey.
