About Joanne:

Internationally recognized Researcher, Teacher, Author, and Past-Life Therapist, Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHt, has published six books and hundreds of magazine articles for both mainstream and esoteric audiences.

In 1987, Joanne began devoting all of her time to her esoteric studies, specializing in past-life exploration, research, and therapy. The years she spent researching and working on her own past lives, coupled with her experience as the director of her own past-life research organization, gives clients the comfort of knowing they are working with someone who has firsthand knowledge of the emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual experience a past-life journey entails.  She eventually combined her passion for soul writing™ with her knowledge of reincarnation and today is considered a respected expert in both fields.

I’ve always seen myself as a Reporter for the Universe. Being able to research, understand, and share the richness of esoteric topics like Past Life exploration and Soul Writing™ in a practical, healing way is a core part of my spiritual DNA and purpose in this lifetime!

Joanne offers a full array of esoteric & therapeutic services encompassing:

  • One-on-one private Soul Writing™ and Past-Life Therapy sessions.
  • Digital and self-guided learning courses. “Coming Soon”
  • And literature for the hungering soul to rekindle their higher awareness and use of the gifts, attributes, and goals they incarnate with again and again.
