Our Story

Reflections Books has been serving our community since 1988! Today, Reflections is a hub for spiritual seekers, healers, and psychic practitioners. A team of uniquely gifted staff members work alongside owner, Melissa Webber, to provide helpful knowledge, quality service, and loving kindness to our valued customers.

Since Melissa took over Reflections in April 2018, the store has continued to evolve and transform. Through intentional and careful sourcing, we strive to bring in new, eco-friendly and locally made products to support you on your spiritual journey. At Reflections, you can find an abundance of uplifting, healing, and transformational tools to bring joy to your life and loved ones.

We also offer Psychic Readings and have a wellness space above the store.

About the Team

Melissa

Melissa

In 2018, Melissa took over as owner of Reflections Books from her mother-in-law Carole, who opened the store in 1988. After a journey of self-healing, Melissa knew taking over the store was the next step in her spiritual awakening. For Melissa, Reflections is about helping and connecting with people, about witnessing transformation of others and herself, and being surrounded by magic. She loves all the books, crystals, incense, and self-care items, among the many other offerings at the store. She also values having the Oasis Wellness Centre as a hub for spiritual classes and sessions available to the local community. Her goal is to provide a safe, inclusive space for people to gather, learn, and expand both at the store and the Oasis.

Being the Taurus that she is, Melissa has a passion for food! She loves growing and sharing food with others, enjoying the nourishment that is available to us from the earth, and how powerful it is to connect with the food we put in our bodies. Melissa’s spirituality is nature-based and she believes in the interconnectedness of all things. She has learned that being in the present moment connects us with our inner selves and brings stillness in a busy world (Her recommended read: The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle). A coyote was the catalyst for Melissa’s spiritual awakening and she feels deeply connected to Blue Herons.

Through the Oasis, she offers Reiki classes, Reiki sessions, Theta healing, and tarot readings. In her personal time, Grace loves to read books, and gets together with friends to practice energy healing and divination. The most important thing Grace has learned on her spiritual journey is finding how to love herself.
