east west bookshop in seattle's roosevelt neighborhood is one of the most peaceful, tranquil places i know, right up there with the beach or the top of my favorite tree. it is wonderfully quiet, where you are surrounded with books, much like the library, yet there is also the sweet smells of nag champa and sweetgrass. prayer flags, mini buddahs, mirrors,rainbows to align your chakras surround you; as do the sounds of bamboo wind chimes and water fountains running all around you.
there is a wonderful used book section and always a wide array of gorgeoug crystals and jewelry for sale. there are also classes, workshops with guest speakers and private psychic readings. whether you have $5, or $100 to spend it is one of seattle';s most beautiful indoor places to visit.namaste.
