The Omega Centre Bookstore

Surrounded by skyscrapers and caught in gridlock, it can be hard to find spiritual escapes in this city. I am very grateful to have discovered The Omega Centre Bookstore, which has been serving Toronto for many years but took me quite some time to stumble upon.

Omega is a fantastic place to find information about spiritual and holistic events and classes in Toronto. Often, special guests are right in the store and there is always a calendar of community activities available to customers.

Located on Yorkville, Omega is an unsurpassed resource centre. No matter what your beliefs might be, you're bound to find something at Omega. Although it is aptly called a bookstore, the merchandise is widely varied. Here, you will find candles, jewellery, art cards, a multitude of crystals and, of course, books.

The staff are knowledgeable and the prices quite reasonable. With soft music playing and a hint of incense in the air, the atmosphere is beyond relaxing. Give yourself time to enjoy it...a typical visit for me lasts at least an hour and I have yet to come away empty-handed.
