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™ 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 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.
