Joan will talk about some of the major life changes she has made because of her night-time dreams, including becoming a full time writer. Her talk will illustrate that the wisdom and advice contained in our night time dreams can give us the courage to make major life changes, confident that those changes are serving our higher purpose. Her talk will inspire those wanting to make changes but, for whatever reason, feel unable to do so.

Currently with a coven of books (thirteen - all available on Amazon) she has many more projects underway. Having recorded her dreams for over thirty years, she will show how her dreams gave her the confidence to make many major life changes and also facilitated a major breakthrough in her doctoral research (chemistry). Her dreams continue to inform her work and her life.
