DiMaggio_3.5x5The Your Soul Remembers workshop offered at the Edgar Cayce Forum is an abbreviated version of Joanne’s longer program exploring the fascinating discoveries she made while conducting the regression/soul writing research sessions, including a case of spontaneous healing and the emergence of a soul group. Joanne ties the Cayce material into her work and concludes with a group past life regression in which participants are taken to the past life that is impacting them in the here and now. The regression is followed by a soul writing session to gather additional information. A time for questions and sharing follows.

Joanne’s programs range anywhere from 2 hours to a full day. She’d love to tailor one of her talks to your group. Contact her for more information.

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHt, is a graduate of the University of Illinois and a freelance writer with a background in marketing and public relations. She worked in the Chicago media market for many years until moving to Charlottesville in 1995. During her long career, she has had hundreds of articles published in newspapers and magazines.

Joanne has been actively involved with Edgar Cayce’s Association for Research and Enlightenment (A.R.E.) since 1987. In 1990, she became one of the founding members of the A.R.E. Heartland Region, headquartered in Chicago.  She has been Coordinator for the A.R.E. Charlottesville, Virginia area since August 2008.

Joanne earned her Masters in Transpersonal Studies degree and her Spiritual Mentor certification through Atlantic University in Virginia Beach, Virginia in May 2010. Her culminating project (thesis) was on inspirational writing and served as the basis of her first book, Soul Writing: Conversing With Your Higher Self.   She formed the first Atlantic University Alumni Association for which she served as president for over two 
years. In April 2011 she was honored at the 2011 Distance Education Training Council’s annual conference as Atlantic University’s Outstanding Graduate of the year.

An inspired teacher and speaker, Joanne has given several talks on the subject of inspirational writing at A.R.E. headquarters in Virginia Beach, and to A.R.E. groups in the Chicago area; in Milwaukee; in Bethesda, MD and throughout Virginia (Charlottesville; Richmond; Waynesboro; Alexandria; and Stephens City). She also spoke at The Rhine Institute at Duke University in Durham, NC, and presented at the International Association for Near Death Studies annual conference in Washington, D.C. in August 2013. Joanne mentors month-long eGroups on soul writing through A.R.E. and Atlantic University on both Soul Writing and on to use Soul Writing to access past life information. She has been a guest on numerous radio programs and the subject of several magazine articles. She was one of the authors featured at the 2012 Virginia Festival of the Book.

Using inspirational writing, Joanne produced a small line of greeting cards called Spirit Song. The International Greeting Card Association cited one of those cards, What is Human is Immortal, for its creative excellence, choosing it as one of six worldwide finalists in the “Sympathy” category for its Annual LOUIE Awards.

Joanne has been professionally pursuing past-life research and therapy for over 25 years. In October 1991 she founded PLEXUS (Past Life Exploration, Understanding and Sharing) in Naperville, IL and brought that organization to Charlottesville under the name Athanasy in 1995. During that time she also acted as Study Group Chairman for the Association for Past-Life Research and Therapies, now known as the International Association for Regression Research and Therapies, and continues her membership in that organization today. She is also a member of the National Association for Transpersonal Hypnotherapists.

She is a graduate of the Eastern Institute of Hypnotherapy as a Certified Hypnotherapist. Joanne completed additional training in hypnosis at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL and studied under Dr. Irene Hickman, a pioneer in the field of non-directive hypnotherapy. The years she spent as the head of her own past life research center enabled her to interact with some of the leading past life therapists, authors and other renowned practitioners from across the country.

In April 2013, Joanne founded The Unity Holistic Healing Center, a service of Unity of Charlottesville, where she serves as Director. She maintains an office there where she conducts private past life regression sessions and workshops on past-life and soul-writing related courses.

In August 2011 her book, Soul Writing: Conversing With Your Higher Self, was published by Olde Souls Press. The sequel to that book, Your Soul Remembers: Accessing Your Past Lives Through Soul Writing, was published by Rainbow Ridge Press and released in October 2013 and explores how to use soul writing to acquire past life information.

Joanne enjoys traveling to different parts of the country to participate in conferences, workshops and programs sharing how to use soul writing—a tool of transformation that anyone can learn—to acquire guidance on every aspect of life.

Soul Writing and Your Soul Remembers are both available on Amazon.

51rk9AkdWFL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Your Soul Remembers is proof positive that answers to questions about your past lives are at the tip of your finger. Author and past-life specialist, Joanne DiMaggio, conducted a groundbreaking research project, combining past-life regression and a form of inspirational writing she calls Soul Writing. With the help of fifty volunteers, ranging in age from 23 to 81, Joanne regressed each to the past life that was having the most impact on them now. After the regression—but while they were still in an altered state of consciousness—she placed a pen in their hand and a journal on their lap and instructed them to ask their soul for information about that lifetime that eluded them in the regression. While they wrote, she also wrote, asking her Source for information she could share. The results were astonishing. Starting in the first century and ending in the recent past, Your Soul Remembers is a veritable past-life passport that takes you to countries across the planet—from obscure hamlets to desolate fortresses, from the quiet English countryside to the wild, wild American west. History comes alive as you read firsthand accounts of what it was like to experience the destruction of Pompeii; persecution in Tudor England; abduction during the Holocaust, and how those experiences still are affecting lives today.

Your Soul Remembers includes fascinating accounts of clusters of soul groups who came forward with similar stories; of spontaneous healings after discovering the origin of a physical karma; of recognition of individuals today who played a similar role in the past.

Posted by admin Filed in BOOKS, CONFERENCES, Lectures, SPEAKER, WORKSHOP

Dave-1There is probably no greater mystery in the history of human affairs than the legend of Altantis.  Even in our modern time of mass communication through movies, books, television, and the Internet, stories about Atlantis abound.  According to Edgar Cayce, our current preoccupation with Atlantis is due, in large measure, to reincarnation.

Cayce is probably best known for the psychic trances into which he entered and gave readings – psychic discourses on practically any topic including reincarnation and the fabled Atlantis.  The Cayce readings assert that many influential individuals alive in the world today had past lives in Atlantis.

However, the Cayce readings insist that the information should be regarded as more than a matter of curiosity about the mythic past.  Rather, due to the influx of souls reincarnating into the earth during the 20th century, he noted that this group would have an enormous impact on world events.  The same conflicts and destructive urges that brought devastation to Atlantis would be faced again.  The swift development of high technology in the early twentieth century was linked to Atlantis, where flying machines, radio, and television were said to have already been invented in the that legendary land.

In attempting to tell the story of Atlantis, this presentation will focus on relevance – on the meaning of the story – the interweaving of characters and events that resonate with the world today.  A recommendation provided by Cayce is to use colorful drawings to tell the story of Atlantis.  Hence this presentation will rely heavily on colorful graphic illustrations created with modern 3D software.  The intent is to follow Cayce’s advice to make it a visually graphic, colorful tale – in other words, visual storytelling.

Using Subtle Energy to Restore Peace and Harmony in Your Life


Your body is actually designed to hold onto stress to keep you safe from harm, and that design is absolutely brilliant.

Now you can change your energy and change your body’s response to stress! In this workshop, you will:


  • Learn how to assure your body that you really are safe most of the time.
  • Repattern the fight-flight-freeze response so it’s fully charged for real emergencies.
  • Achieve more restful sleep and greater vitality.
  • Revitalize your immune system.


Whether you are in the midst of challenging life circumstances or simply looking for something you can do right now to help yourself relax, this is the program for you. You will definitely walk away from this workshop feeling empowered with energy tools you can use!
