Following Our Bliss
Quietly, reverently, open the wooden gate and walk along the cobbled stone, past the lush flower gardens buzzing with fat bees, past the silent pilgrims wading in the shallow, slippery healing pool, past the lion's head spout pouring out holy water, tinged red with iron, like blood from the heart of the Earth. When you reach the round portal with its iconic lid propped open and dressed with flowers, gaze into the sacred well as time stops. Flashing through layers upon layers of illuminating awareness, each second of looking into this dark water of truth feels like forever. Something touches the nameless within you. Breathe. Rest your mind. Find stillness here.
Surrender to this indigo depth, and know thyself.
Since 2006, we've followed our dreams, starting out as a small private practice in a Berkeley office, growing over a decade into a booming retail shop in Oakland, then a second shop in Portland. There was a lot we loved about shop life, especially our customers. Many of you have been with us from the beginning, and we welcome you on the next leg of our journey.
Life has given us a new adventure. We heard the call of the mountains. We have become geographically autonomous in a commitment to walking the wild and wide-ranging road of wisdom. We thrive when we are exploring the world and making connections with fellow mystic travelers, and we want to bring that spirit of freedom to our work with you. We are now based in Mt Shasta, where the beauty of nature and the excitement of thousands of annual spiritual pilgrims bring us joy.
Avalon (also known as Glastonbury), where The Chalice Well pictured above is found, is connected to Mt Shasta via ley lines. Avalon is the heart chakra of the Earth and Mt Shasta is the root chakra. Many people make pilgrimages to both places for healing. In our case, our pilgrimage to Avalon followed by a trip to Mt Shasta brought us home. Both Avalon and Mt Shasta are located upon red and white sacred holy springs (iron-rich, and silica-rich) that flow side by side from the body of the Earth, representing the divine union of wisdom and compassion. We feel blessed by the energetic connection of these sacred wells, by their relationship to one another and to the well-being of the planet.
