Bodhi Tree began as a beloved Hollywood bookstore and destination for the spiritually curious in 1970. The original owners, Stan Madson and Phil Thompson, could be found there often, deep in conversation with customers, or introducing one of the many authors such as Deepak Chopra, who gave talks there. Today, Bodhi Tree has expanded to become an online destination for new and antiquarian book titles as well as handcrafted sacred home and ceremonial products, consciously selected to support the thoughtful path. Our Bodhi Tree LIVE event space allows our community to continue to gather in person, with live streaming capabilities for our customers throughout the world.
Reintroducing an icon is no small task. Our mission was to rebirth Bodhi Tree in the most sincere and elegant way, five years after the Melrose Avenue location closed, and to be a resource for discovery, reflection and wisdom. Our team is a tight-knit group of talented contributors who are dedicated to artfully resurrecting this beloved concept, retaining the integrity and humility that Bodhi Tree always embodied.
We are seekers, just like you, with a mission to offer a unique, thoughtful experience with the wondrous world of books, our first love, and offer tools to support a more awakened life. We are here to ask the questions, big and small, metaphysical and practical.
We’re so glad you’ve joined us.
