Your Long Distance Local Bookstore. Quality Fact and Literary Fiction for Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

The Higher Self Book Store is a New Age, New Thought, Metaphysical entity that offers the opportunity for personal growth, healing, enlightenment, knowledge, intuition development, health and well-being, along with materials and merchandise that supports one’s path, belief system, awakening and rebirth.

We view it as our job to say yes to what the Northern Michigan community wants in a bookstore – reading groups, music, helpful staff, convenient hours, support of local authors and a welcoming atmosphere. We hope you consider us to be your “third place,” the place you go to relax , the first being home, the second being work.
