The Dreaming Goddess…

Dreaming-Goddess…was a trance-channeling priestess who ventured deeply into the darkness for divine inspiration. She was an oracle, dreaming visions of wholeness for one’s personal healing, the benefit of the community and Mother Earth. She was found in an alcove in an underground temple on the Island of Malta, dating back approximately 6,000 years ago.
Today her spirit is alive and vibrant. The Dreaming Goddess offers workshops, circles and gatherings. Connect to the cycles and rhythms of the Earth by celebrating the Wheel of the Year, and honoring the phases of the moon; times of the year that our dreaming-goddess-sign1ancestors revered and in many cases built great structures and altars (for example, Stonehenge and Newgrange).

We’re creating ceremony relevant to our time and to our culture, allowing these auspicious days to have deep meaning in our lives and in our connection to the Earth. Be sure to check out our calendar of events and happenings. You can join the email list serve and receive our monthly newsletter with all of our updates and news.

“There is a most natural experience when one walks into the Dreaming Goddess…. a Nature walk of its own. It speaks to me with a label I’ve adopted affectionately….pragmatic mysticism. This can be found in this Nest. An owner’s personal support coupled with a community support weave together to manifest the natural abundance desired by all. This space is a hearthside and the embers reflect the contributions.”

Rhianna

Owner, Visionary, Creatrix

“I love the many hats I wear, beginning with being the chief navigator of the fundamental going-ons at the DG. I’m a mother to one awesome man, a sister to two beautiful women, and Aunt Rhi Rhi to four amazing young humans. I’m currently the beloved caregiver of two black cats and a 6 ft red tail boa constrictor. I’m a fire spinner, hula hooper, dancer, healer, artist.”

Favorite Mythical Creature: Unicorns are my favorite magical extinct creature. To call it mythical would imply that I didn’t believe they ever roamed the Earth.
Birthday/Zodiac Sign: Taurus with Virgo Rising; Moon in Cancer
If You Were a Stone or Crystal, What Would You Be: If I were a stone I would like to be a piece of Fire Agate ~ deep, mysterious, full of vibrant flashes of red, orange and gold that dance like flames.
Favorite Color: If I said my favorite color was anything other than purple would anyone believe me?!
Favorite Form of Divination: Pendulum
Favorite Tarot of Oracle Deck: The Messenger Oracle, by Ravynne Phelan, has become my favorite daily go to deck. As far as tarot, I have a tattered old deck of the Lovers Tarot, now long out of print, that are over-sized collage cards, depicting only the major arcana. I love it dearly and have found it to be incredibly profound. For readings my fall back to deck is the Robin Wood tarot.
Favorite Poem, Book or Author: Favorite poet is Mary Oliver and my favorite poem by her is “Sleeping in the Forest.”
Favorite Artist: Love my local girl Melissa Harris for sure.
Favorite Song to Sing or Dance to: Song to sing, dance and hula hoop to would be Anna Nalick “Breathe”, I like to fire spin to Evanescence “Bring Me to Life” and my favorite song to listen to is “Bliss” by Sirgun Karaoke and Sardar Shan Singh.
Favorite Movie: I have many favorite movies. These days I will only watch non scary sci-fi or super hero movies, animated movies and movies with happy endings.
Favorite place to grab a bite in the DG neighborhood: I love so many of our awesome neighborhood restaurants I couldn’t just tell you about one so here goes: any fresh juice or wrap at All Shook Up; any salad and the lavender lemonade from Twisted Soul; the baked brie at the Beechtree; and the pretzel, caramel, graham cracker crusted madness @ BC kitchen (Babycakes).
The best thing about working at the DG: The best thing about going to work every day starts off with being greeted by the most amazing staff. We are a cohesive family unit; growing, healing, challenging ourselves in the safety of each others gentleness and understanding. I am deeply blessed by each of their presence in my life, both at work and outside of the shop.[/fusion_text][/one_half][separator style_type=”single|dotted” top_margin=”3″ bottom_margin=”10″ sep_color=”#650075″ border_size=”4″ icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”75%” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][one_third last=”no” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][imageframe lightbox=”no” gallery_id=”” lightbox_image=”” style_type=”none” hover_type=”none” bordercolor=”#650075″ bordersize=”4px” borderradius=”” stylecolor=”” align=”none” link=”” linktarget=”_blank” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” hide_on_mobile=”no” class=”” id=””] [/imageframe][/one_third][one_half last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” padding=”” margin_top=”10″ margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

The Best Thing About Working at the DG: There is always something incredible to learn or grow from, whether from the people that come through the door, the classes & gatherings, or the different tools and objects in the shop.
