What has brought you to this work?

I have had a strong pull towards the mystical from a young age. Growing up in a primarily christian household made it tough to practice the craft. After having countless books and other items destroyed I halted my studies, but I eventually found my way back to the moonlit path through astrological profiling. I have always been a self-taught solitary practitioner who prefers low magick to highly ritualized practice. Working in one of Ontario's oldest Occult Boutiques for five years also helped grow my knowledge base as I had access to a large library of metaphysical material. During my time in college I was invited and initiated into a very private sect of advanced practitioners who shall remain nameless. I have done very little of the ritual work needed to advance in this above mentioned group, but am looking to continue my studies, and eventually will advance beyond the stage of neophyte and glean what the goddess has hidden for me in that practice. After graduating college I was approached by an interested party to finance a Magick shop here in St. Catharine's and that is my current focus.

Here at The Dark Butterfly we are responding to a perceived need within the community for a source of alternative spiritual supplies and guidance. Chelsea (the store manager), has an extensive background in the Metaphysical craft, and was hand picked by Anna (the owner of the shop) to assist clients with their personal needs. An experienced professional in the business for over five years, she aims to assist you with the manifestation of your goals and intentions utilizing a variety of Magickal techniques, customized and catered to the individual need. For those who already have a strong understanding of their own practice, we offer a large variety of supplies you may need to complete your manifestation intentions.

What services do you offer and how do they assist others?

Our full service Magickal supplies shop provides a wide range of spiritual supplies such as candles, crystals, oils, oracle/tarot cards, books, herbs, visualization/manifestation kits, and much more.
