When do you ship?
We ship Monday through Friday. All orders received by 12:00 pm eastern time will be shipped the same day.
Where do you ship?
We ship to any location in the USA and most international locations except for countries in the European Union and Brazil. Unfortunately, due to complications with the VAT and other tax codes, we cannot ship to these countries. You can try to order our books from other popular online retailers, such as Amazon.
What is your shipping method for orders within the United States?
Media Mail: The default shipping method for domestic book orders is USPS Media Mail. This usually arrives in 2 - 5 business days, but as it is the least expensive method of shipping, it can occasionally be slower. Media Mail does not come with tracking, and it applies for orders that contain only books or other media.
Priority Mail: Domestic orders have the option of upgrading to USPS Priority Mail, which should reach its destination anywhere in the US within 2 - 3 business days. Priority Mail comes with free tracking upon request.
What is your shipping method for international orders?
International Orders: Depending on weight, either USPS First Class International or USPS Priority Mail International for non-US orders. International orders can arrive as soon as 5 business days after shipping. The slowest international order we've ever received news of took about 2.5 weeks to arrive. Longer than that and something has gone wrong. : )
Note: International orders come with tracking only within the U.S. Once the package leaves the country, the postal service does not continue tracking the package.
(Please do not write, "Remote Himalayan Mountain Cave" as the shipping address. You know we cannot ship to you, Babaji Maharaj.)
What about your "flat rate" method of shipping?
Orders over a certain weight will be less expensive to ship in a flat-rate box. ("Flat rate" simply means that however much the the box weighs, the cost to ship the box stays the same.) Flat rate does not change the shipping speed.
Our store isn't sophisticated enough to offer you the flat rate only when it may be helpful. How do you know when to choose flate rate? Whenever it's the least expensive shipping method. No calculators needed.
Can you ship me enlightenment?
We are sorry, we cannot. Ra will explain:
We cannot offer shortcuts to enlightenment. Enlightenment is of the moment, is an opening to intelligent infinity. It can only be accomplished by the self, for the self. Another self cannot teach/learn enlightenment, but only teach/learn information, inspiration, or a sharing of love, of mystery, of the unknown that makes the other-self reach out and begin the seeking process that ends in a moment, but who can know when an entity will open the gate to the present?
