About Our New Name

The Mystic Dream

About our new name... For 18 years the name 'Dolphin Dream' has been well known in Walnut Creek and well beyond. Some know it as that strange shop where all the weirdos hang out. Others see it as a sanctuary that encourages spiritual engagement and feeds the souls of their community. Many come in looking for dolphin shaped knick-knacks and are often disappointed. Then there are those who find us, look around, then ask "why is this shop named Dolphin Dream;" a fair enough question, albeit one we have no good answer for. Dolphins are considered by some to be spiritually evolved creatures in tune with higher frequencies of consciousness, indeed, it was with this association in mind that the store was christened Dolphin Dream back in the dawn of the New Age. However, not everyone perceives dolphins as being enlightened beings. Ask someone on the street what comes to mind when you say the name 'dolphin' and you may get answers such as 'bad tuna' or 'shark prey' or 'fin flop,' not the connotations that ought to be associated with a spiritual supply shop. In order to inform customers of what products they might find, the word 'mystic' best expresses the energy of our store. We invite you to come and partake in this transition, that you too may have a mystical experience. Our purpose (our dream) remains the same, to encourage spiritual development, diversity of beliefs, and enlightenment in all its forms.
Whereas the dolphin has been set free, our dream continues.

New Pendulums

This week we (Storm & Chas) met with one of our favorite independant vendors and selected a wide variety of pendulums, nearly two hundred! All are hand-crafted from folk across the globe, ranging from folk art beads to fancy European metal work. Come on in and find one that calls to you.
