We Support the Local Community
Shining Lotus™ Metaphysical Bookstore is a locally owned, independent bookstore. Read why this matters. We are proud to serve a diverse local community of spiritual seekers, drawn from both eastern and western traditions.
Shining Lotus™ has been the Air Sponsor for Front Range Pagan Pride the past two years and again this year. The Pagan Pride organization is dedicated to educating people about the different paths in paganism through workshops and public ritual. Pagan Pride Day promotes networking for pagans by inviting local pagan vendors, artisans, entertainers and groups or organizations to take part in the day.
Shining Lotus™ partners with the Denver Theosophical Society to provide recycling for household batteries. Household batteries release toxic chemicals into the environment. We accept household size D and smaller. Re-chargeable okay too. Batteries are fully recycled in the U.S. No part of the battery is shipped to third world countries or disposed in landfills.
Shining Lotus™ conducts an annual fundraiser for The Denver Hospice, the region’s leading hospice since 1978. The Denver Hospice empowers caregivers by providing an unsurpassed and complete set of resources designed to educate, to comfort, and above all, to provide understanding.
Shining Lotus™ is proud to be a member of the Mile High Business Alliance. The Colorado Local First media campaign is all about raising awareness of the importance of local businesses, and providing resources for people to connect with locally-owned companies. Stop by today and pick up a copy of the new Local Flavor Guide to University Hills. All businesses listed in the guide are locally owned.
Shining Lotus™ is gay-owned and LGBTQ friendly. We support the work of The Center. The mission of The Center is to engage, empower, enrich, and advance the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community of Colorado.
We are members of the Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR). COVR exists to support independent retailers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and publishers of visionary books, music, and merchandise. COVR also welcomes conscious-based individuals or companies who demonstrate an active interest in the New Age and Conscious markets. Justin Swanström serves on the COVR board of directors.
Shining Lotus™ belongs to IndieBound. IndieBound brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive. Supporting local, indie businesses means that dollars, jobs, diversity, choice, and taxes stay local, creating strong, unique communities and happy citizens.
