|Call First: Over the Past 8 Years Witchvox has featured over 2.000 local shops. During that time ONLY 3 shops have informed us that they were closed, hundreds never bothered, much to the frustration of customers that drove to the shop only to find it 'out of business'... We highly recommend that you CALL Local shop listings before you make the trip. - Witchvox Staff |

All the flyers we have in the store are on the Resource Page of our website as downloadable files (covering such topics as smudging, magickal oils, colors and candles, amulets & talismans, herb warning sheets and more) . Our goal is to provide the highest quality goods and information to assist you with your personal spiritual quest.
Our books cover a wide range from personal growth/recovery and development of psychic skills to health, earth religions, eastern thought and on into UFO's, astrology, angels, channeled material, magick, wicca and more. Our music is also eclectic, from new age to world alternative to Native American and Celtic. We have in-store play demos of over 400 CD's, on two 200 disc CD players, and give personal attention and time to help connect people with music they'll enjoy. We also have a wide selection of meditation and self-hypnosis CDs as well as related books on CD. We also now have a new, rapidly expanding section of DVD's.
We do special ordering of books and audio items. These, almost always, arrive within 3 to 4 days. Special orders, placed and picked up in store, also apply to our Free Discount Buyers Club. This program keeps track of our customers' in-store purchases of books, music, jewelry, stones, candles, incenses, oils and divination decks (our largest selling categories) and for every $250 spent over any length of time, a $20 coupon is given to the customer for their selection of store items or services. For our on-line customers we have elected to discount shipping/handling costs, conduct on-line specials and various other surprises as our way of saying thank you.
We have a stunning array of gemstones and crystals, all hand selected by Deborah for the unique beauty and energy of each specimen. We have everything from inexpensive tumbled stones to gorgeous polished spheres, points and sacred shapes. Many of our pieces are truly museum quality.
We have a unique and beautiful array of jewelry. Some are one-of-a-kind pieces. We also have hand-selected stones and polished points that are lovingly wrapped in silver or gold by local artists. We support cottage businesses in the United States and much of our beautiful jewelry comes from independent artists from all across our country.
We have incense from around the world - India, Japan, Tibet, Europe, Middle East, Africa, United States and Native American - the finest sticks, cones and resins are gathered together and available at Pathways. We also have the highest quality botanicals we could locate. Herbs, roots, barks, flowers, seeds, either grown in the wild or organically grown have been gathered from the world over. None have been chemically sprayed or irradiated. If you have a favorite botanical, we invite you to compare the quality of what we offer. We think you will be pleasantly surprised.
One brief word regarding minors. We do not sell botanicals to them. We feel that any item that could be taken internally requires education, maturity and wisdom before use. We also do not sell books on subjects such as tantra, altered consciousness, western magick or witchcraft to them (although we honor them as viable paths) without the presence or expressed approval of their parents. We are not here to bring strife to families, but hopefully to assist in their growth and understanding.
At our own expense, we have purchased, and have open for view, over 100 tarot and divination decks. We want customers to be pleased with their purchases and an important criterion for that is an informed choice of purchase. Frequently we have shown 15 to 20 decks to people based on their artistic affinity and content so that they can purchase something with which they are comfortable and that meets their needs.
We have candles suited for every purpose, from plain solid color candles, votives and candles in glass to candles with herbs and/or oils designed for special uses. We also have a variety of essential oils, flower essences and extracts that we personally use and enjoy. In line with our policy of having the highest quality items we can locate, our windchimes, notecards, posters, window transparencies, statues and calendars are truly the best we could find. We support local Missouri artists and have several items in our store on consignment to give them the opportunity to become better known and to display their talents. We also have difficult to find magazines and DVD sales.
Other wonderful items are also available as we locate and purchase unique, high-quality new products. We truly mean it when we say "New Arrivals Weekly". Check out the New Arrivals section of our website for the latest additions. We've also developed New Arrivals sections in the store for CD's, Books and Gifts. So many new items come in each week that we work to make sure you see all the new arrivals.
In the area of services we offer both private, personal sessions as well as a calendar of in-store events. On the personal side, by appointment, we have private tarot consultations, astrology consultations, hypnotherapist sessions, clairvoyant sessions, gemstone-crystal balancings, Himalayan tuned Chakra Bowl sessions and energy-field work. On various days we have different gifted readers available for our customers. Please check our monthly calendar, on our website, for current availability.
Our calendar of in-store events keeps our customers aware of the wide variety of activities that are offered by Pathways. On the last Sunday of the month we have an In-Store Psychic Fair with free admission and free lectures. We have guest psychics in doing $15 readings. These are great fun and provide the opportunity for people to connect with some of the better psychics in the area. Our readers are at the fair by invitation (not because they have paid for a space) and are invited because of the accuracy, sincerity and compassion they display when doing their work.
Occasional evening discussion groups, study groups and a drumming circle are also free, with the option of a love donation. These groups are designed to give a time and space for people on their spiritual journey to share thoughts, ideas and questions with others of a like mind. It and the Sunday meditations are services that we provide as part of our own giving program to help others find their inner spiritual course. These are of a wide range and format for we believe all paths lead to the Godhead and a better openness and understanding of others frequently leads to a more clear understanding of ourselves. Please check our calendar of events (on our website) for the current month for latest information. Current offerings include a weekly Sunday chanting group ("Enlighten St. Louis") , a Wednesday Evening Discussion Group, a Friday Magickal Discussion Group and a Drumming Circle.
Classes and workshops are available for a very nominal charge on a wide range of topics and special guest readers are invited in on selected Saturdays, all detailed in our monthly calendar section. And, of course, there are the inevitable surprises, special events and sales that are on the calendar and website as well.
The Sunday Evening Circle of Light Independent Spiritualist Church Healing Meditation and Prayer Service is free but we do ask for a donation of canned goods that we give to local food pantries. Monetary donations go towards local church and community needs and a building fund. The main section of the service varies from week to week. Frequent topics are chants, astrological meditations, guided meditations and energy work with friends. This is directed beginning energy-field work where people both send and receive energy from each other and then share their experiences. There is a yearly focus for a system or a concept as Spiritualism recognizes and honors all faiths. Also included in these Sunday services are short inspirational talks, spiritual healing work and mediumistic spirit messages. On approximately a monthly basis there is a service with an activity rather than a meditation. This is in response to families who want to share a service with their children.
PATHWAY'S MISSION STATEMENT
Pathways commitment is to retail high quality unique products that augment in some way the spiritual and/or consciousness growth of our customers. We will offer personalized attentive service by friendly, knowledgeable staff - who share the value of our commitment.
We will offer assistance but strive to always remember that a person’s path is his or her own personal choice. We will respect the path they have chosen and their right to make that choice. We will strive to provide information to our customers to enable them to make informed choices about many products that are new to their lives, but we will refrain from presenting our own personal choices as the "only" way. For we realize that the pathways to the Godhead are infinite.
