Inner Traditions celebrates 40th anniversary as Independent Publisher


inner-traditionsThis is the 40th year of independent publishing for Vermont-based Inner Traditions/Bear & Company. Founded by Ehud C. Sperling in 1975, Inner Traditions has established itself as a landmark publisher of books on new age spirituality, alternative health and more.

Internationally recognized, Inner Traditions moved to Rochester, VT, in 1986. Nestled in the Green Mountains, Rochester provides a community and setting well matched to the company’s values and aspirations. Inner Traditions is one of the largest employers in the area.

With over 1,400 books in print, Inner Traditions’ mission is to rediscover, preserve and protect the spiritual traditions of the world. Books published by Inner Traditions and its imprints are distributed around the world and translated into dozens of languages. Bestsellers include The Heart of Yoga, DMT: The Spirit Molecule, and The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils. Well-known authors include Zecharia Sitchin, Dr. Julie Holland, Barbara Hand Clow, Rick Strassman and artist Alex Grey. The company prides itself on the attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship that go into each and every book it publishes.

Inner Traditions is committed to social responsibility in the Vermont community and beyond. Locally, the company generates power from solar panels on the roof of its office in Rochester and its solar farm in Randolph. Ehud and his family also are actively involved in a 300-acre reforestation project in Costa Rica. The Hacienda Rio Coté project was started as a way to give back to the Earth a portion of the great bounty we have received from it. As part of the project, more than 56 different species of trees have been planted to help reforest farmland and restore the watershed. This project is both supported and administered by Inner Traditions.

All Inner Traditions books are available at and wherever books are sold.
