Metaphysical treatment and international coffee combined in a new Billings cafe



Billings, Montana – Sacred Grounds, a brand-new company with a location at 2950 King Ave. W., aims to provide its clients with a distinctive experience by fusing exotic coffee with spiritual healing.

In addition to coffee, the store sells local artwork, has a traveling library, masseurs, mental health specialists, and a space with salt lamps and dim lighting for relaxation.

According to the company’s owner, Mackenzie Brown, the special blend is just how he had envisioned his enterprise to seem.

“We really wanted something different,” Brown said. “It was always kind of part of the plan, just to have a place where you could come and get a coffee or tea and just relax and soak up the good vibes. Just a one-stop shop for all of their spiritual needs.”

According to Brown, the company aims to provide something for everyone in light of Billings’ ongoing growth.

“Billings is growing very fast and so there’s new culture and new people coming in,” Brown said. “We are just trying to do something to support all of that.”

Damian Forrester, a co-owner of the store, claimed to have first met Brown while serving as his realtor. Forrester decided he wanted to get more involved with Brown when he presented his ideas for the store.

“I just loved the idea and what they were aiming for,” Forrester said. “It’s for everyone to come and enjoy and hopefully, enjoy everything we have to offer.”

According to Forrester, the location is meant to provide a respite from Billings’ typical shops and enterprises.

“It’s a different space,” Forrester said. “I always tell people, ‘Once you come in here, you don’t feel like you’re in Billings anymore.”

And the company is undoubtedly distinct. There’s a lot to offer within its doors, from the foreign coffee manufacturing area where the staff brews their drinks using a pile of hot sand to the metaphysical healing zone where salt lights light a gloomy chamber.

“We’re open to anybody,” Brown said. “We just want to hold a space in town where people can come and be themselves.”

Even though the company has only been operating for a few months, the proprietors report that the response so far has been outstanding.

“I got goosebumps just talking about it,” Forrester said. “Just because what we’re hearing from the people, it’s what Billings needed.”

“I’m incredibly thankful. Incredibly thankful,” Brown said. “This was always the plan, but I didn’t think it would get there this quickly.”
