Esmeralda Baños, a Miami native, has been involved with the occult since she was a teenager. “Working here feels very natural to me because I can help people and learn even more than I knew before,” said Baños. “Having a good knowledge base helps too when I’m sharing information with sincere people.”
The shop’s manager, Elizabeth Kaufman, leads meditation circles where Reiki practitioners stand behind participants and perform hands-on healing. Reiki is an technique in which practitioners deliver energy while they reduce stress, anxiety, and more. “I would tell people when they first come in here to just walk around and see what draws you, what takes your liking, and maybe that’s something that you need to explore,” said Baños. “Especially if you’re starting with stones, the easiest way to start is with crystals, because they’re natural, they’re from the earth.”
