Initially located in Collins St., the T.S. Bookshop started life as the Reading Room of the Theosophical Society in Melbourne in the early 1900s. Moving to 126 Russell Street in 1975, it relocated to its current home at 234 Flinders Lane in 2021. The bookshop continues to serve the aims of the Theosophical Society, in supporting and encouraging the study of comparative religion, philosophy and science.
As more and more people seek answers and deeper truths in turbulent times, the bookshop has been here to help them in their quest. We specialise not only in esoteric literature from the sacred and mystical traditions of all of the world’s great spiritualities, but a whole lot more.
Worldwide mythology & folklore, psychology and self-help (including a significant Jungian section), traditional medicines (Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, Tibetan medicine, Western herbalism, Spagyrics etc.), New Age philosophy, and divination (astrology, tarot cards and books, I-Ching, runelore, palmistry, dowsing) are all significant sections among our range.
Today we have more than 10,000 titles in stock, and many many more on our database. We source titles from across the globe, including India, the UK and the US, and our knowledgable staff are able to help you in the search for the title you want. We provide a prompt and reliable mailorder service all over Australia and the world, with generally same-day dispatch.
We also stock everything you need for your spiritual journey: perhaps Melbourne's largest range of natural incense and resins; singing bowls, statues and other sacred objects; crystals, oracle cards, jewellery, and aromatherapy oils and candles.
Plus of course, our huge range of hard-to-find esoteric, spiritual and traditional musics, on CD and now, vinyl.
So, enjoy our website, or make the time to visit us in our new home in Flinders Lane – we look forward to seeing you in the shop, or answering your questions on the phone or by email.
