What we’re all about and much, much more…

Welcome to our site on the amazing world wide web. I would like to share a little history with you about Dancing Moon Books and Gifts.

In March of 2005 we moved once again to our present location on Wake Forest Rd. Dancing Moon Books & Gifts has become one of the largest independent, New Age retailers in the Southeast. We carry a large selection of books and gifts, aromatherapy and candles, CDs, incense and crystals, jewelry and tarot decks, and herbs. We invite you to browse our website (as you do, remember that the inventory listed is just a small sub-set of what we carry in the store), check our  events calendar for a listing of readers and healers, upcoming events, classes, and seminars;  or just come by in person and spend some time at the”MOON” – we trust you will find it an enlightening experience! Our knowledgeable staff has been serving the community for many years now and we consider ourselves fortunate to be a part of the Spirit of Dancing Moon, and we trust that you will as well. Our purpose here at the Moon is to:

  • Maintain a consciousness that grows and changes as our awareness expands;

Martha Engeman - Chakra Reading + Balancing

Do you want to have more energy and feel clearer in your life? If so, then chakra balancing can help. Clearing and balancing the chakras helps to bring the body, mind and spirit into alignment so you have the energy to live the life that you want.

Chakras are wheels of energy that are located a few inches off of the spine, going from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and beyond. The chakras relate to specific parts of your body, issues that you may be facing in your life, to your emotions—to everything.

Chakra balancing sessions include:

  • Discussion about what is going on in your life to identify the key challenges
  • Overview of the chakras and what they signify
  • A reading of the energy in your chakras and clearing and rebalancing your chakras

Cost: $60 for 30 minutes, $110 for 60 minutes

Denise Lucille - Numerologist

I’ve been doing numerology charts for over 25 years and my reading are focused around your life path, why you are here in this life; and the energy both strengths and challenges you are here to reconcile and work through to live your best, most productive and happy life.  My full charts include past, present and future energies and a full 30+ page chart to read later.

Energetic Numerology Readings & Charts –Numerology is a mathematical method of ancient science created by Pythagoras, a philosopher, 2500 years ago who coined the phrase Philosophy. He discovered that by using our birth names and dates we can understand our life path and the energetic cycles that come into our space throughout our lives through the use of numerology formulas. By formulating our birth name and birth date in a numerology chart, he stated that we can better understand ourselves, each other, and the direction we are taking, personally and collectively. Everything in life is a cycle and numerology helps us understand those energetic cycles and how significant good “timing” is when making life decisions. I have found just the “knowledge” of our numerology cycle can help us understand that everything is fluid and that everything eventually passes. This knowledge can release us to understanding these cycles and how to best work within the energy challenges and strengths.  Numerology teaches us that life energy ebbs and flows. Ultimately there is much value in understanding this energy when making and evaluating the timing of our decisions.


Numerology Pricing:

Life path & Purpose, current year and monthly reading.  Comes with a printout of your life path number. $60.00/30 minutes

Full 30+ Page chart (to be emailed after the reading to review later) and one full hour reading for life path and purpose, other core numbers, pinnacles, personal years & months. $100/60 minutes.

Terri Wiebold - Medical Intuitive

Terri is a Registered Nurse, a Certified Holistic Nurse, Certified Medical Intuitive, and Karuna Reiki Master in private practice since 1990.

The strength of my intuition and insights accelerated after a near death experience at age 7 while was hospitalized for pneumonia. It was then,

I found my life’s purpose to be a nurse healer.  Since then, I have continually expanded my gifts to assist others to heal.

In this style of Medical Intuition all information comes from the body. While attending to the client, I use Body Scan techniques to clarify, source, and track information to root cause.  During the Body Scan the body may share physical, emotional, and spiritual information or patterns that are contributing to symptoms of discomfort or even interfering with healing.I use Body Scan techniques to clarify, source, and track information to its root cause. Many years of experience with the Body Scan process has taught me that each person’s body processes and holds the experiences of their lifetime differently.
In 2001, I trained in this style of Medical Intuition Body Scans with Lori Wilson at Inner Access 101, in Guelph, Canada.

Session: Mini Body Scans: 30 minutes for $75. The Mini Body scans focus on one symptom or area of the body of your choice, to source to root cause.
