If you’re looking for a little magic, visit Calling Corners New Age Boutique in downtown Truro. Sarah Coleman opened the mystical shop six years ago to create a space where people can explore spirituality, ask questions, and learn.

“If you’re looking for some magic, you can come to us,” Sarah says. “That’s what it’s about, making your own magic. Whether you believe in magic in the traditional sense or you’re looking for a serendipitous moment, you can come here. Magic is super important, and that’s what we’ve tried to infuse into the shop.”

The shop carries a wide range of new age products including crystals, a variety of indie tarot card decks, zines, books, and mystic tools made by locals.When Sarah was designing the store, she wanted to make sure it was a place where people felt comfortable asking questions and learning. “When I was first learning about metaphysical things, I would go into different places and sometimes feel uncomfortable asking questions about things I didn’t know. We have a lot of young people come in who are really curious, and they seem to feel confident asking questions. I’m really proud of fostering that type of environment,” says Sarah.

When someone new to the mystical world comes into Calling Corners, Sarah and her team encourage them to walk around the shop, touch things and find what feels right to them. “We usually start people off with crystals because that’s something that comes from the Earth, and everyone has equal access to them. You can find stones on walks,” Sarah explains. “Sometimes we’ll just tell people to go for a walk in the woods, see how that feels, and see what comes up for them along the way.”

Calling Corners Staff

Heidi, Elsa, and Sarah from Calling Corners in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Sarah decided to open Calling Corners after a breakup when she was leaning heavily into the spiritual world to deal with the changes happening in her life. Sarah’s been a lover of stories for as long as she can remember. She cites the movie The Craft, as a huge inspiration to her in opening the store.

“I just liked seeing weird girls, because I was a weird girl,” Sarah says. “I want other girls to see me being a weird girl now, and that it’s okay to be weird. That’s the nucleus of it.”

One of Sarah’s major achievements is carrying a selection of products and services from local artists and practitioners. The store carries a variety of indie tarot decks, zines, and books created by locals, and offers services like tarot readings (when public health regulations permit). “I love helping local artists, that was one of my major goals,” she says. “There’s like this cool, underground indie world where you’re getting decks made directly by the artists, and oftentimes you’re helping fund them, I love it.”

Sarah’s extremely proud of her staff as well. They all have unique interests and expertise in different areas of the metaphysical world, which creates a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in learning. Often, when people come into a mystical shop, they’re searching for something that they wouldn’t typically be looking for in other stores. That means that the team at Calling Corners sometimes hears deeper, spiritual concerns from their clients, which can be a lot to take on.

“My whole team is very intuitive,” Sarah says. “They can handle all kinds of situations very well, feel compassion for people, and really work to understand them and help them find what they’re looking for or what they might need.”

Calling Corners

Sarah loves having her store in downtown Truro, her hometown.

“I’m a sucker for stories and movies and that sort of thing,” she says. “So it’s kind of like I get to live in this movie where I go to my shop, then walk down the street to get coffee and say hello to everyone. It feels a bit like Gilmore Girls, which I super dig; I try to cultivate my life so it feels like something from the 90s. And that’s what I love best, I grew up here, and I have so many memories.”

When it comes to choosing a path for exploring the metaphysical, or spirituality, Sarah says that every person needs to find their own path, and her team at Calling Corners can provide educational material and other items based on what an individual is interested in.

“Spirituality to me is just being able to tap into myself and trust that there’s something besides it,” she says. “It’s not having to rely solely on my brain, which can overthink and create spirals; spirituality is my respite from that.” She says that she might do a tarot reading, something magical, or just listen to music to get herself into a spiritual mindset.

The Coven Slumber Party Podcast

Sarah recently started a phenomenally entertaining podcast with her friend and colleague Rae from Black Heart Arts called the Coven Slumber Party. The pair breaks down and geek out over witchy, magical, and mystical media from the 80s and 90s, while “trying to fill the video store-shaped holes in their hearts” (all of us 80s and 90s kids feel this way when we turn on Netflix, don’t we?). They talk about witchy movies, nostalgia and recreate the atmosphere of a 90s slumber party through the lens of adulthood, business, and life.

Pyrite

Pyrite

Often referred to as “Fool’s Gold”, this masculine stone’s true namesake comes from a Greek word meaning “fire” because of its ability to generate sparks when struck against metals. The spark is really the nature of pyrite, as its warming and stimulating effect is known to increase vitality in those who carry it. Its ability to ignite a spiritual & mental fire within you makes this stone ideal for situations requiring studious focus; when one needs to come out of their shell and where a strong will is needed. An excellent protection talisman against manipulation and high-risk work environments. It inspires its holder to protect others.

Smoky Quartz

Smoky Quartz

The transparent brown (or deep gray) tones of this crystal really embody its powerful yet gentle influence. An ideal grounding stone, smoky quartz absorbs negative energies either from the atmosphere, or as a blockage in one’s auric field, and sends it into the Earth where the negativity can be cleared and transformed naturally. As a result, one who carries smoky quartz is likely to find it alleviates resentments or unspoken conflicts, mitigates nightmares, relieves fear & depression, pacifies the mind, and produces emotional calmness. This crystal is also well-known to aid in patience and focus. Because of the nature of its properties, smoky quartz should be cleansed regularly.

We’re all familiar with this idiom, and might have (embarrassingly) said it ourselves back in the day. This stone acts as just that! With its calming, milky colouring, Howlite helps to neutralize aggressive emotions, whether yours or some else is sending those rage-vibes your way. The perfect sone to aid in meditation. Under your pillow, this stone can be a great sleeping tool to relax a restless mind.
