Our Story

Mary Kara & Robert Leysen
founders

At the forefront of the spiritual realm since we opened our doors in 1985, the Psychic Eye Book Shops, created by Robert Leysen and Mary Kara, are the largest and most comprehensive New & Old Age bookseller and metaphysical gift supplier in the United States.

In accordance with our philosophy of keeping things simple, to the point – and, above all, real – we designed this website to be an online source for any and all realistic, modern metaphysical & spiritual needs, as well as to be a supplement for our five diverse West Coast locations.

The Psychic Eye is also world-renowned for featuring carefully chosen professional and ethical psychic consultants, available by phone, in-person at our Store Locations, or specially booked for group events.
