Entrepreneur breathes life into space on Mill Street

Yoga, soul work and more available at the Omful Lounge downtown Chilliwack

Kristen Day had a vision of filling a downtown space with her heart and soul, where positive energy flows freely. And she’s succeeded.

The entrepreneur has created The Omful Spiritual & Holistic Healing Lounge, newly opened on Mill Street in Chilliwack. The studio and retail space is a soothing break from the busy street outside, with water trickling through a fountain, and pleasing wood tones throughout that relax the spirit.

She’s filled the shelves with a variety of mostly locally-made products, with beautiful items including candles shaped like river stones, organic body products, tea, yoga-friendly clothing, gifts, artwork and more. While it’s what first meets the eye when walking into the shop, the space is a centre for so much more. She’s brought at least a dozen vendors into her space, and each has its unique purpose.

“This is a healing place,” Day says.

To that end, she and two other metaphysical practitioners share the space and work together to help people bring harmony and balance into their lives. Spiritually minded souls can gather to participate in meditation, circles, moon and solstice ceremonies, intuitive development, book club, sound healing, chakra work, soul work, yoga, Qigong, and an endless calendar of workshops and classes.

Day says whether you are newly experiencing your journey’s path or fully immersed in it, the Lounge was designed to support and guide you. Day is a Certified Feng Shui Consultant & Coach, Certified Qigong Instructor and Level One Reiki Practitioner. She also offers Indian Head Massage and Arm/Hand Massage sessions as well as Tea Leaf Readings.

Melanie Sereda of H.E.R. Healing Guidance offers one on one (and group) Soul Coaching, Intuitive Development & Mediumship sessions and is a Master Reiki Practitioner.

Paige Koster of Pegasus Gemstone Design creates intuitively made Mala jewelry and offers services of Chakra Work for adults and children. A list of their workshops and more information about each of the services is listed on their website, www.omfulhomes.com.

Day says she couldn’t have opened the doors with the hard work and loving support of her partner Chris Bolton. And since the doors have opened, she’s been overwhelmed with support from her new customers.

“They have been coming in and thanking us for being here,” she says. “It’s been confirmation that we are doing the right thing.”

The Omful Spiritual & Holistic Healing Lounge is located at 9361 Mill St. and they are open every day, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with studio hours for classes early in the morning and into the evening.
