I found The Crystal Cavern by accident but it was much more than I expected. The shop is chock a block with crystals and other new age paraphernalia- heaven on a stick. Great price range. Only downside was they only take cash so I had to leave empty handed. Although it’s out of the way it’s a pleasant drive and I will definitely be back to buy.

These people are a disaster. They are unfriendly and lack customer service. They have limited social skills and even though they promote health and wellbeing they fail to have learnt for themselves the basic tools for human interaction.
The owner suffers from strong body odour and frequently ask customers for hugs. Disgusting.
Energetically felt like aggression which was unwarranted in a place like Carmel.
The many car wrecks are a direct reflection of the owner, no business sense.
A complete waste of time.

I love this place, amazing range.

However, I wanted to address what's been said here about the hugging. I saw one review saying it wasn't their cup of tea and Stan addressed that by saying that only 1% of people have an issue with it.

Then Stan went on to say that another person had also complained about this.

It seems that many, many people love the hug and the environment but what Stan is failing to accept is that some people value their personal space and don't want to touch someone so intimately that they don't know.

Now, I'm not sure if Stan asks for permission before he does this, but even if he does so, it would be very socially awkward for someone to say no.

Now of course one could argue that this is his place and he can do what he wants, but if someone attends without knowing this custom, then it's understandable that they might be uncomfortable.

Stan, could you confirm whether or not you ask for permission first so we can further this discussion?

I am quite sure that you mean absolutely no harm but perhaps haven't thought this all the way through.

Everyone!!! do yourself a favour and head on over to this lovely bushland setting for a wonderful experience.
Every Saturday and Sunday afternoon for an hour, immerse yourself, body, mind and spirit, in the wonderful sounds of gong meditation. You will "float" away.

Melissa and Stan are attentive, friendly hosts.
You wont be disappointed.
