Debbie Harris-FunferOwner & Buying-trip Diva Extraordinaire
With over 30 years of cultivating spiritual practice & world-wide travel under her belt, Debbie brings a lifetime of experience and insight straight to the HEART of her unique Salt Spring Island store. She has travelled extensively through Asia, and many of the treasures she brings to the store make their way here through sources she has worked with for years. Debbie first came to Salt Spring Island over 25 years ago & spent 3 years at the Buddhist retreat centre on Mt.Tuam. She has studied Vipassana & Buddhism extensively. Debbie’s current focus in spiritual development is on the unification teachings of the Advaita Vedanta tradition, under her primary teacher, Adyashanti. Prior to opening Treasures of the Heart on Salt Spring Island, Debbie owned and operated an Interior Design, and a Metaphysical Store in Santa Fe, New Mexico for over 10 years. Debbie’s vision for Treasures of the Heart is to provide a beautiful and soulful oasis where visitors can stop, still their minds, and see themselves reflected in the beauty around them. We think she’s done a fantastic job!

Kim ChristieService Specialist & Organic Treasure Seeker
Kim feels blessed to have been born a magical child – curious about many things: nature, art, healing modalities, yoga, meditation, gardening, cooking, and kayaking to name a few. She has explored these particular passions for decades. After traveling for a few years she immersed herself in Art, until it became as necessary to her as breathing. At the same time, she began her studies in bodywork, yoga and meditation. Kim expanded her healing practice in an Ayurvedic Spa for 8 years, where she practiced 11 different therapies. With age and a lot of experience, Kim wanted to bring it all together to share her many joys with children. Now, as a Waldorf preschool teacher, she is pushed to delve even deeper into matters of the heart where play, creativity and nature are sacred. Kim’s very first collection as a child was of semi-precious stones. She slept with them at the head of her bed! In summers she traveled to a very rich area where other rockhounds explored. So, her work at the store is like a treasure for her heart!
Tashi NorbuTOTH Mascot & Official Napper
Tashi is our official Mascott, and Debbie’s constant companion of 9 years.

If you’re a dog-lover, make sure you stop for a snuggle. Tashi loves all the attention he can get! Tashi Norbu is Tibetan for “Auspicious Jewel”. Our little Tashi DEFINITELY lives up to his name!
