At the edge of the Forest
At a loss, not knowing where to turn for help, you recall the village myth of a recluse wise couple who lived at the edge of town near the woods. The tall tales of their healing abilities and wisdom was dismissed by many. Stories of their skill with herbs, star-reading, crystals and magick. Warlocks who understood and do not judge because they had traveled the road ahead many years before. You think perhaps your help and answers can be found within the Hermits’ Cupboard.
We're not about "Stuff"
What's Important to us?
Hermits’ Cupboard is a husband and husband team. As a gay homosexual owned business, we support and advocate for inclusivity and diversity. There is no place here for racists, homophobes, white supremacist, blood or genetic superiority or the dominance of any belief system over another.
Yeah, that’s not the introduction you get at most spiritual stores, is it? Let’s be honest, life isn’t all happy thoughts, rainbows and unicorn farts. There’s a lot of turmoil in the world. Finding your balance is getting more and more difficult. We understand and are here to help.
Especially, we accept with open hearts and spirit those pagans and their families who are impacted by US mass incarceration, be that in a county, state or federal institutions. We disagree with the christian-like judgmentalism of some pagan groups (like ADF) who consider anyone who has been incarcerated as “on lifetime probation”.
People make mistakes, serve their time, and deserve the opportunity for social restoration. It’s wrong for spiritual leaders to put anyone under “lifetime probation”. If incarceration has affected you, know that we love you and there is a community that accepts you.
We’re here for all paths. It doesn’t matter if you are interested in or practice; Eastern, Celtic, Roman, Greek, First Peoples / Native, African, Hermetic, Kabbala, Wicca, Druid, Northern Tradition, Teutonic, Taoist, Hindu, Buddhist, Pantheist, Animist, Polytheist, Mystic, Eclectic or whatever, we are here to help you on your journey. These are all just labels. You are more than a label; you’re a unique individual with unique spiritual needs and we respect your individuality.
There is no shame in saying “I don’t know”. No one can know it all. If we don’t know, we do the best we can to find the answers using our knowledge, resources, and intuition.
This is not a place for dogma. In the occult, spirituality and metaphysics, sometimes there is no absolute right answer or the right way. There may be multiple ways, some better than others. You learn the best way for yourself through experience and perspective.
We thank you for choosing Hermits’ Cupboard.
