Web Site Statement of Purpose
Welcome to Insight. Established in 1986, we are a bookstore specializing in metaphysical concepts and opportunities for those who seek to know more about themselves and their world. The word "metaphysical" describes all possibilities beyond the limits of our five senses. We encourage people to seek the source of their own insight and inspir ation and to free themselves from the fear and dogma that limit their growth.
We believe that all people have a right to their own ideas and belief systems and should be free to follow their own pathways. We encourage all philosophies, religions and spiritual practices, believing they all have value for those who seek answers to life's questions. We do not judge your needs or the veracity of your convictions. We also do not limit arbitrarily the availability of books and other items due to personal preference. It is our goal to match resources with all people who hunger for them, to disseminate information so all people can free their minds to their own unlimited possibilities. We wish to counteract many centuries of censorship by those who wish to limit our growth.
We have books and items that can help excite the imagination, stir creative juices and solve problems. So what excites you to learn new things? Maybe you've had a lucid dream that demands understanding. Perhaps your heart yearns to study the practices and beliefs of the Native Americans. Or, an unexpected feeling of direct communication with someone recently deceased requires verification.
Perhaps you wish to compare your religion with one or more of the other world religions. Maybe your doctor isn't helping you, or you have no health insurance and need to explore alternate health and healing methods. Or, you see certain cycles and synchronicities that make you curious to discover explanations. Ancient civilizations are exciting for some, UFO's and other unexplained phenomena exciting to others.
We want you to feel like you are actually visiting our store. So picture in your mind an old two-story former residence converted into a bookstore, rustic and unique. As you walk in, imagine the sights and sounds and smells are all there to heighten your awareness and uplift your spirit. Hear the gentle music and feel it warm your heart. Smell the mild. incense burning in the back room. See the Native American ceremonial items hung prominently on the walls. See and feel the crystals and jewelry. Sense the undercurrent of excitement and discovery as other visitors explore their special interests or whisper with their friends about their learning experiences.
And the books... see all the books. Every nook and cranny is filled to the brim with books. Perhaps there's a little dust here and there, but there's no doubt the books are treated with love and respect. Add to all this the possibility that a small vortex of upward-spiraling energy exists at this location, and you can feel like the gateways of your mind are opening and expanding in all directions.
We have tried to provide as much information as we can about our books for sale, helping you feel that you are actually looking at these books. We hope this information will make it easier for you to know what you are purchasing. We also hope we can save you money on books that are not appropriate for your needs. We hope to keep adding more descriptive information as time goes on. However, please realize that we do not favor the books that have descriptions. Eventually, we hope to provide details on every book available to us. The prices for our books and items are based on publishers' suggested retail prices. We feel that discounting our books cheapens their value and excessively commercializes our efforts. The book business is our life's work. We are in business to help people, and we know that we will continue to make a decent living if we do good work.
We hope our personal approach can help you learn to trust us and to turn to us for your future needs. For example, shipping and handling charges are based on our actual costs and may be somewhat less than other companies. In addition, we hope to put your orders into your hands within 1-2 weeks whenever possible (necessary exceptions include books that are temporarily out-of-stock or when publishers are reprinting). Also, we will not charge you anything until your order is in our hands ready for mailing. We will order any book that is in print whether it's on our list or not.
And you can call 1-888-326-5683 if you need more information or do not wish to send your credit card number through the Network.
We hope you will enjoy browsing through our listings. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know. Thank you.
In Love and Light,
Mary Jane Tuttle
