Pascal

Pascal is the Director of Operations who runs the daily life of the shop with efficiency and flair. As a partner, he joins the team with his baggage as practitioner but also as an educated administrator: Director of the Orders department, he is a Master in all aspects of customer service, products and supply management.

His path led him to various Traditions explorations : as an eclectic and open minded practitioner, his practice is totally integrated in his daily tasks. He is currently working to create administrative tools to better serve the needs of a growing clientele. He is actually, the man behind the Reward Practitioner+ Program designed to give back to the community!

Michel
MichelCo-Owner
Many of you know our new partner under the name “Mr. Michel”. Indeed, Michel has been consultant in Tarot for over 10 years at Charme & Sortilège. He now joins us as a partner, while continuing to offer Consultations at the shop.

His practice is eclectic and his journey is based on openness, sincerity and universal love. His approach is discreet and full of compassion: he is always ready to put his hand to the dough to help and support. His contribution is valuable as a partner: he believes more than ever in the Spiritual Mission of Charme & Sortilège.

We really have the feeling he found his place! 🙂

Precursors

Dominic Desmeules
Dominic DesmeulesCo-founder
Dominic was the partner at the time of the foundation and his contribution was paramount in the original Mission of the Boutique. His generous involvement has greatly contributed to the deep foundations of what Charme & Sortilège has become over the years. He left to take over his role as a full-time father … and continue his acting career!
Laïla
LaïlaGuardian
Laïla, Charme & Sortilege’s sweet Bastet since the beginning, lived for 14 years at the Boutique. At the time of the major renovations (March to June 2017), we decided to offer her a golden retirement to avoid the stress and discomfort of the chaos. She now lives with Kim where she continues to represent the compassion and hospitality of the staff associated with the Mission of Charme & Sortilège. Thank you beautiful Laila for the years you shared with us all!
Sylvain Chevarie
Sylvain ChevarieGuardian and eminent collaborator.
Sylvain assumed the responsibility of Senior Manager of the Boutique during a period of important commercial transition and his role was decisive for the continuation and survival of the Shop. Guardian at heart, he managed to stay the course for several years. Returned to school; he remains a friend of Charme & Sortilège.
