This place has been in Atlanta for MANY years and I've visited many times. I've made quite a few purchases over the years, but am always a bit saddened by the sheer amount of new age cluelessness here.
Gems, Books, a Community to relax and learn in.
Phoenix and Dragon is much more than an excellent gift shop it is a community of wonderful people. I go there to learn, relax, and explore other cultures. I attend Saturday night meditation which sets me in the right spirits for the week. The meditation room overlooks trees and nature and the guided meditation is an excellent way to escape from the stress in my life.
My wife loves the stones, and jewelry. I enjoy the community of people I have met there. Sometimes I just sit out in the center court near the oak or visit the goldfish pond. The staff is extremely friendly and make you feel welcomed. I get a chance to read books that I can't find in other big bookstores. Overall I rate Phoenix and Dragon a "5". Don't miss their monthly art exhibits. Have fun at Phoenix and Dragon!
