Anniversary Celebration: Origo Books turns two years old!
Downtown Toronto's alternative and metaphysical bookshop is celebrating its second anniversary on Saturday August 11 with an open door event featuring free talks and raffles.
In the words of Origo Books owner, Amilcar Alvarez, "Year Two is considered the end of the 'baby age' for small businesses, so we are really happy to transition into the pre-teen year... with all the exciting lessons, changes and explorations it brings. We have so much to thank to so many!... from dozens of practitioners, speakers and facilitators to a faithful customer base that encourages us to persevere in these times of confusion."
In addition to retailing and in tune with its motto "Feed Your Mind, Empower Your Soul", Origo Books offers a wide range of services: book signings, oracle and psychic readings, workshops, courses and classes, lectures, seminars and talks, healing sessions, networking events, as well as product presentations and launches. Authors, healers, and metaphysicists are actively encouraged to consider Origo Books as a viable platform to showcase their Work and spread their Intention. Every day there is something happening at Origo Books!
Since the inception of the Origo Books store in 2010, the Origo Books Gallery has been providing a space for local visual artists to promote their works in the ever growing, ever evolving community of Toronto and the GTA. Acknowledging that there is no point for Art to be created and not distributed, the Origo Books Gallery goes beyond decorative art and fosters meaningful creativity. No more soul-less, mass-created, golem art but thoughtful, mindful, cathartic, inspiring, transformational, visionary, emotive "Art for the Mind and Soul."
Located one block south of the iconic St. Lawrence Market and a short walk from Sugar Beach Park, Origo Books is easily accessible from outside Toronto via the Gardiner Expressway.
