Ulverston is set to get a new spiritual haven this month that will showcase local artisans and facilitate creative workshops for all ages.

Ritual Bliss, located on Market Street, will be dedicated to mindfulness and emotional and spiritual well-being.

The building currently has two rooms and a front retail space, described as the 'magical space', which will showcase unique handmade gifts.

Owner 55-year-old Louise Stirzaker plans to fill the middle room with creativity and positivity by facilitating workshops for all ages.

The back room will be a quiet space dedicated to readings such as tarot and oracle readings.

Louise has been a holistic practitioner for the best part of 30 years and started in 1996. 

She said: "I had quite a mundane job as a secretary and when I was furloughed in 2020 I decided to get creative.

"My mum was a seamstress and I used her sewing machine to start making embroidered silk-lined tarot bags which really took off and developed into a worldwide online business called Crystal Haven.

"I was quite confined working from home however and I very much missed meeting and interacting with people.

"This is why I decided to create the shop. 

"I want Ritual Bliss to be a place for people to come and escape the stresses of everyday life and also be a hub for positive, like-minded individuals.

"The retail front of the shop will be the highlight and magical space of Ritual Bliss.

"It will showcase amazing and unique handmade gifts and the work I am receiving from these artisans is outstanding - I know our customers will be taken aback.

"Additionally, it will be an area where customers can purchase a huge variety of beauty and pampering products, as well as spiritual tools and ethically sourced crystals to assist in daily rituals."

Louise added: "It's the more, the merrier for me.

"Whether it be basket weaving, art, collage, journaling, air dry clay, wand-making - anything that children or even adults can enjoy for one to two hours.

"Whatever creates positive outcomes and happy memories, I would be honoured to have you."

Louise is also aiming to help people in their daily rituals by sourcing tools or special items.

This includes incense, essential oils, wands, candles, bathing or shower products, skincare, altar cloths or tarot/oracle/lenormand/kipper cards.
