Joanne DiMaggio, MA, CHt

Are physical and mental illnesses the result of karma acquired in a past life, and if so, does uncovering that lifetime lead to healing? According to the yearlong research project conducted by author and past-life specialist Joanne DiMaggio, the answer is yes! Fifty volunteers participated in the project, suffering from a variety of chronic physical conditions. Each session included a body scan, past-life regression and soul-writing segment. The outcome of her research is chronicled in her new book: Karma Can Be a Real Pain: Past Life Clues to Current Life Maladies.

Joanne will discuss the result of her research, and then lead the group into an exercise to scan their bodies for signs of discomfort, sensitivity or birthmarks related to a prior life. The session will end with a soul writing exercise to get details of that lifetime.

Joanne has given talks on the subject of past life exploration and soul writing to audiences across the country and has been the guest on over 50 national and international radio programs, including Coast to Coast AM and the Shirley MacLaine Show. She will be one of the featured workshop presenters at A.R.E. Congress in June, and will be giving a full-day workshop on Soul Writing at the A.R.E. in August.

Joanne has been professionally pursuing past-life research and therapy for over 30 years. She is a graduate of the Eastern Institute of Hypnotherapy, 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. She earned her Masters in Transpersonal Studies degree and her Spiritual Mentor Certification through Atlantic University. The years she spent as the head of her own past-life research center outside of Chicago enabled her to interact with some of the leading past-life therapists, authors, and other renowned practitioners from across the country.


In addition to Karma Can be a Real Pain, her other books include Your Soul Remembers: Accessing Your Past Lives Through Soul Writing and Soul Writing: Accessing Your Higher Self. Her books will be available for sale at a discounted rate at the Forum.


Joanne is the founder and director of the Unity Holistic Healing Center, a service of Unity of Charlottesville, where she conducts private past-life regressions and soul writing sessions.
