Watkins Bookstore: Much More than Books

Watkins If there’s one store I miss the most from England, it would have to be Watkins. From the time I was in my 20’s, this magical place was part of my metaphysical education and growth.  I would spend hours over the books and then retreat for a lovely pot of tea and pastries, a ritual repeated many times over the years with my mother, Maureen, and many other dear friends.  “Going to Watkins” became a full afternoon event.

In case you’re not familiar with it, Watkins Books is an esoteric bookshop in the heart of London. Located just off Leicester Square, it’s is a must see if you’re on your way to the museums or the theater. Established over 100 years ago, this is one of the world’s oldest independent bookshops specializing in new and antiquarian titles in the Mind, Body, Spirit field.

But it’s not just books! In addition to esoterica, Watkins offers so much more: amazing gifts, music, DVDs, tarot sessions, author readings, lectures, online videos, etc. In recent years the company has expanded into book publishing, and they have a wonderful quarterly magazine, “Watkins Mind, Body, Spirit.” Watkins has been in the top 5 of every “Spiritual Resources” list for years, and you owe it to yourself to check it out.

To March or Not to March: When Science Gets Political

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Data is data, science is objective, and the facts should speak for themselves, right? The answer is… complicated. The choice of what to study can be very subjective, constrained by preconceived ideas, and driven by special interest groups, or funding, (often the same thing). Data has always been open to interpretation, and – even before Kellyanne Conway coined the phrase – “the facts” were sometimes ignored in favor of “alternative facts.” But what’s scaring some scientists now is the anti-science, climate change denying stance of the Trump administration, and the fact that data is disappearing.

The Coming of the Cosmic Age: Michael Mannion on Wilhelm Reich

The trial of Wilhelm Reich is an unknown, untold story. The US Federal Court-ordered banning and burning of his medical and scientific writings is not taught in American schools. It is not even known to the legal profession. It has long been ignored by those who fight for First Amendment rights in the US. And you will never see Reich’s writings included in any of the thousands of annual “Banned Books” displays around the country each year.
