Tayu New from Old
Welcome to the Many Rivers Books & Tea website.
The Many Rivers mission is to provide customers with
tools to support genuine spiritual practice. Owned and
operated by Tayu Order, a nonprofit church corporation,
Many Rivers is an embodiment of the Tayu philosophy
that genuine self-inquiry—however it arises—is the
heart of religious and spiritual endeavor.

Thus we offer products to support self-inquiry as practiced in all the great philosophical, religious and spiritual traditions, including books, incense, candles, sacred art, etc. Due to its inherent utility for invocation of ritual meditative spaces, and its historical connections to meditative practices in Asia and beyond, Many Rivers offers tea and teaware for sale in support of the cultivation of meditative attention in the midst of daily life.

We also support spiritual practice by hosting spiritual talks, classes, and special events with speakers from every religious tradition. In addition to Special Events and Ongoing Events, check out the schedule for our popular Thursdays at Many Rivers series in our store in Sebastopol, California, or download and listen to past talks.
