Personal transformations can produce startling revelations. The seemingly surprising metamorphism Jeffrey Segal experienced took him from jurisprudence to crystallography. It was surprising for everyone but Jeffrey.
s a books reporter in the Digital Age, I'm often asked: What's the future of books? Although I can honestly say that I believe books are as vital and significant now as they ever have been, the truth is that I can't predict the future. There are, however, those who can.
Mystic Journey Crystals offers the highest-quality crystals to be found anywhere in Southern California, if not all of California or even the country. Between the gallery and the bookstore, Mystic Journey has the widest variety of crystals and stone you will ever see. The gallery offers the largest geodes you will see anywhere outside a museum – if there!
here is a space on the Westside, a zen oasis providing an escape from the hustle of life in Los Angeles. The Mystic Journey crystal gallery, yoga, sound bath and meditation studio is an expansion of the beloved Venice bookstore of the same name. The new space at 1702 Lincoln Boulevard in Venice is not like anything in Los Angeles. Half of Mystic Journey is the crystal gallery, and the other half is a light therapy and Reiki room, and a studio where classes run seven days a week.
Mystic Journey has been a westside mecca for spreading metaphysical knowledge and esoteric healing since debuted on Abbot Kinney nearly a decade ago, and this summer marks a new age for the Venice bookstore. The boutique has expanded its good vibes to Lincoln Boulevard, where it recently opened a crystal and art gallery and space for meditation and yoga.

After beating cancer, Jeffrey Segal took another huge step and opened a bookstore. Amanda Bender, an indie-film actress, moved to Venice from Brooklyn a month ago and immediately embraced the welcoming vibe at Mystic Journey Bookstore.
I thought about what I needed to do to clear my energy of the fear, sadness and worry that had built up. I hadn’t been to Mystic Journey in a week, since the gorgeous Grand Opening, but had missed the healing energy there. I remembered that the Dynasty Electrik Crystal Sound Bath is on Friday evenings. I hadn’t yet made it to one but had heard beautiful things about it from my old soul friend, Pritesh Shah. I double checked the schedule, and saw that I had just enough time to eat, shower, and drive to Venice.
When people come to the Mystic Journey Crystal Gallery, they always ask me, “How do they get these amazing crystal geodes out of the earth? Do they look like this when they come out?” On a recent trip to Uruguay, I saw for myself the amethyst crystal mines, the extraction process, and how the geodes go from a rock in the earth, to the amazing pieces of natural beauty in our gallery. I want to share with you what I learned.
