About Us

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we made the decision to close down our physical location rather than go out of business entirely. This closes one chapter on a 30+ year journey, but it is by no means the end. We are happy to offer many products and even services online while we all weather the current pandemic. Once it is fully safe to do so, we intend to reopen in a new location. Please follow us on social media for updates. 

Our History... 

We were established in 1989 to serve the diverse spiritual needs of the San Francisco Bay Area. Originally named “Dolphin Dream” by the original owners Jean & June (after the visionary experience that started it all) we soon became a fixture in the Walnut Creek downtown, offering something unique to the East Bay.

Not just a retail store, “The Dream” set out to be a place in which the various spiritual communities could convene to find and share information, tools, and services that cater specifically to the needs of both the new spiritual seeker as well as the lifelong practitioner.

The store was sold in 1996 to Sue, who then sold it in 2007 to Chas Bogan and Storm Faerywolf, proudly returning us to being a gay owned and operated business.

In the spring of 2008 we changed our name to “The Mystic Dream” to better reflect the updated vision for the store as we move into the future.

Storm (who had been a member of “the Dream Team” under the original owners and then later was manager) and his husband Chas were happy to include Devin Hunter as a full partner in 2017, and together they strive to provide a much needed service to the local community, which includes offering readings and other spiritual services to the general public.

Wherever you find your interests directed you are likely to find something in our curious shop. Interested in meditation? Or crystals? Or magic? Or prayer? We have books as well as the tools to help you fuel your spiritual pursuits and improve your life.
