Living the Dream

At Dreaming Goddess New Age and Esoteric Gift Shop, Rhianna Mirabello makes it a priority to offer a safe space for seekers, offering easily affordable classes and workshops and free gatherings. Giving back to the community, in her case, is not just a catchphrase but a necessity. "I was a single mom of a toddler, struggling to make ends meet, when I started doing beadwork and selling it at festivals and in church basements all up and down the East Coast," she says. "My son was seven when the perfect store became available, but I had no savings. The community basically gathered around me and said, 'You must do this' and handed me $5,000. I could never have imagined what life would look like now, 22 years later; I just followed spirit, and the greater good is what drives the business. My son basically grew up in the store; he's 33 now and grateful for all of it."
