Terra Christa is owned by Mary Ruth Van Landingham
and run by a wonderful family of spiritual people who
welcome everyone from all paths of life, and in partnership with her daughter Michele Barlock.
Terra Christa had it's birth on Fenwick Island Delaware
in 1988. It was only a summer store and it was ready to
grow in many areas, so the store relocated to Vienna Virginia
in early 90's Terra Christa has grown from a one room
store about the size of a walk-in closet to a haven of
peace and inspiration with six rooms offering a unique
blend of nurturing products and people willing to share
their knowledge and experience to help shed some light
on the path.
A wonderful quote Ruth loves from The Polar Express song,
Believe: "Destinations are where we Begin Again."
It's all about the "Journey",
not the "Destination"....come journey with us!
From Ruth: I have been
on my spiritual path as long as I can remember, without
really knowing where I was going or how I would get there,
so for me it was a happy day when I heard there was no
final destination, just a new beginning and taking a different
path on the journey. But I did know there was something
more to know and I've always wanted to know....just about
everything. My mission, my dream for the store is to enable
people to know they have all their answers within. No
one needs to be dependent on anyone else for their journey
or for their happiness and fulfillment. I offer a unique
selection of inspirational treasures that I hope remind
people of this....you are your own best guide. Namaste
From Michele: My mother created and grew Terra Christa with the intention of providing a resource for the metaphysical Community in a time where there were so few options available to learn and heal. Bridging religion and Spirituality, Allopathic and holistic therapies, as well as providing a haven for those in need to receive counseling, Guidance or suggestions on where to even begin exploring a more mindful or spiritual life. Our goal is to support Each person walking in the door with no-judgement and true desire to be of service.
