The 5th annual Metaphysical Vendors Market returns to Vernon March 23.

Organizer Laura-Lynn Scheuerman said she decided to start running the semi-annual event after finding solace in metaphysical treatments.

“I was diagnosed 32 years ago with Fibromyalgia and was put onto all kinds of medications,” she said.

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body. On top of widespread pain, symptoms also include an increased sensitivity to pain, fatigue and muscle stiffness.

“I was told I would never work again. Through courses and classes, I found essential oils, crystals, meditation and metaphysical practices I was able to re-centre myself and get off the medications and be a productive part of society,” she said.

But, it was only after injuring her back about seven years ago that she decided to leverage this love of crafts and crystals from hobby into an actual job.

“I found there were not a lot of venues that were under $100 for a day and I was surprised that people who might have amazing items for sale, could not find venues in a lower price range to get a customer base.”

Scheuerman, with the help of her husband, soon began hosting shows about six years ago as a way to “get like-minded people together” in a lower cost venue.

The upcoming event, titled Spring Fling, will run from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. a the Schubert Centre in Vernon. Admission is by donation with all funds collection being split between Boxer Rescue Canada and the Vernon Friendship Centre. She also runs Pagans in the Park each summer, as well as a similar two-day event in October.

“For this market we will have a mix of small home based businesses, crystals, orgone(energy) generators, smudge items, as well as jewelry, hand-made items, flower arrangements, essential oils, native drums and rattles and much, much more,” she said.

The event will also have a palm reader, card readers, Reiki healers, a crystal healing practitioner and a Shambhalla multi-dimensional hands-on healer, a “natural energy healing system”. Scheuerman also noted that interested vendors are still able to sign up to attend.

“We have always been committed to our community,” she said. “It’s really all about bringing people together.”
