Since 1995, Radiance Gifts on Corydon has been a beacon of light offering tools for personal well-being across Western Canada. They are definitely one of Canada’s most comprehensive and Winnipeg’s largest “metaphysical headquarters,” supplying a broad spectrum of resources from humanity’s spiritual, healing, and earth wisdom traditions.
Radiance Gifts is an oasis of ancient and current discoveries and syntheses. One step through the door and you’ll understand that they are solely in the business of celebrating love, wisdom, science, lifecraft, healing, visioning, religion and psychology. Their service is to offer life-giving nourishment for the body, the mind and the soul.
Over the past few years Lisa Tjaden has developed Radiance Gifts into the social gathering point within the alternative community. With a fully equipped classroom and presentation area, they produce close to 100 events and workshops throughout the year. These include topics such as Chakra Balancing, Grief Workshops, Intro to Crystals, Tarot Card events and author signings and readings. Some workshops deal with moral issues or dilemmas, while others focus more on the application of theories and introductions to new discoveries. You might learn about how meditation translates into better living or how a certain crystal can have a mesmerizing quality that will enchant you.
Speaking of crystals, Radiance Gifts crystal and stone selection is by far the most comprehensive inventory in Winnipeg and the reason so many enlightened clients, customers and friends visit often. They carry samples and specimens from across the globe.

Some come to educate and equip themselves for personal introspection and growth. Others are neophytes whose spiritual interest is a recent phenomenon. To many in Winnipeg, young and old, Radiance Gifts is an important cultural landmark in their lives and key to their personal well-being.
