Art, Music, Books and Culture
The vortex of Mount Shasta attracts free spirits and the Silk Road Chai Shop is a place where they can meet, mingle and have the kinds of conversations on which human beings thrive.
“Civilization is two thousand years of Buddha talking to himself”
— American poet Gary Snyder.
The Silk Road Chai Shop is the creation of Lewis Elbinger, along with Bela Watson and Eric Wooddel.

While we honor our sponsors with a BEST AWARD in their field of expertise, we would like to say something about why we are called The Best of Mt Shasta.
Mount Shasta is known worldwide as a destination, primarily because of our spectacular mountain, the exceptional quality of spirituality, our pristine water and abundant nature with lots of outdoor recreational opportunities.
When visitors come to Mount Shasta, there is one treasure they miss – the people of the Mount Shasta area, those who live in Siskiyou County and call Mount Shasta their home.The Best of Mt Shasta is intended to include all the people of this area, showcasing our community to the world!
The BEST Sponsors make The Best of Mt Shasta possible each year. Without them we would not have the annual conference and festival.
Thank you, Lewis Elbinger for your support and patience to make The Best of Mt Shasta happen!
