BIG NEWS: East West Has One of the largest Collections of crystal in California
We are honored to host museum quality crystals from world-class collector, Bill Kaunitz. Below are some of the treasures Bill has discovered over the years. And new, remarkable pieces will come in regularly throughout the year.
Bill is a terrific speaker, and will be giving a different talk about crystals every Wednesday night in August, free. A rare opportunity to learn from a master teacher. Coming up:
East West is one of the largest independent bookstores of its kind in the world. For more than 50 years, we’ve been a center for conscious living, offering a wide selection of books, products, and programs representing spiritual traditions and new insights into mind, body, and spirit from around the world. Stop by to shop, relax, or just renew your spirits.
East West is the spiritual heart of the Silicon Valley. We're a community and a mini-retreat center — hosting over 300 in-store events a year, with leaders in consciousness and spirituality. Deepok Chopra, Dr. Andrew Weil, Caroline Myss, Swami Kriyananda, Stephen Halpern, and Eckhart Tolle are among the many who have spoken here. Nearly every day of the year, you can attend a lecture, workshop, concert, film, or visit an intuitive reader.
The store is overflowing with books, but also with unique and beautiful gifts that uplift the spirit. Browse one of the largest collection of crystals in the Bay Area, sacred art, jewelry, candles, aromatherapy, singing bowls, statues, natural fabric clothing, delicate teapots and organic teas, incense, greeting cards, and a large selection of blank-paper journals. (and much more...)
