Welcome to the spiritual heart of Silicon Valley

Books • Gifts • Readers • Events nearly every day of the week 

East West Bookshop in Mountain View is one of the largest spiritual/metaphysical bookstores in the world. It would take a lifetime to explore even a part of its extensive book offerings. Walking into the front door brings you to another world — a serenity that is deeply calming to the soul. You will find spiritual wisdom from all traditions, by teachers ancient and contemporary.

But there is much more. We offer unique and beautiful gifts that uplift the spirit, including an extraordinary collection of crystals, sacred art, jewelry, candles, aromatherapy, singing bowls, statues and other religious icons, natural fabric clothing, delicate teapots and organic teas, incense, greeting cards, and a large selection of blank-paper journals. 

“Best Place for Unusual Gifts” since 1997
—Mountain View Voice

East West also offers more programs than almost any bookstore in the United States: lectures, workshops, concerts, intuitive readings, and films nearly every day of the year. Well-known authors, spiritual teachers, musicians, and healers speak here, including Dr. Andrew Weil, Cheri Huber, and Caroline Myss. Most programs are free of charge.
