About Joan

“When we bring our attention back to discovering who we are – not who we wish we were or who we think we should be – we begin the sacred path of transformation toward our innate, authentic, embodied power .”

- Heather Ash Amara

Joan comes to Human Design from a long career in various business endeavors, most recently as a business coach and author of Business from Bed, a book she wrote after wading through a 13 year trial and error process navigating life with Crohn’s Disease (now in remission). She’s always been a champion of the individual in whatever she does, whether training new bookstore managers or guiding her business clients towards their own authority when it comes to their business. She’s been a “seeker” of liberation in her own life.

Joan was introduced to Human Design in 2008. It blew the lid of her not-self life; she’s still untangling herself from the web of what she put together because she thought she “needed” to. In 2010 she started her studies in earnest, taking classes from a variety of HD teachers, eventually landing in John’s dojo in 2013, first as a Jedi student and then as the co-founder of the Human Design Unleashed video project. Now she brings her creativity, business and organizational skills to a whole slew of tasks associated with the project.

A splenic generator on the Left Angle Cross of the Clarion, Joan has the ability to hear what is being said and, in the most seemingly gentle way, to deliver the shock that will shift your perspective. Joan introduces Design through the lens of the most simple: What does it tell you about how it’s healthiest for you to engage with the world, and how do you tune into your authority so that your Design naturally emerges as you go about your life?

Joan never forgets the beginning. She’ll meet you right where you are, using what is happening in your life right now to illuminate the opportunities and the dilemmas.

Living Your Design Overview – $175 a session

I like to start with the basics: how are you designed to interact with the world, what is likely to take you out, and how do you begin to navigate the material plane inside this experiment? Some of the people I’ve worked with know very little about the details of their chart. This is where it gets fun for me. When people start to find their frequency and tune in to their own authority, magic! For sure I can share what I see there, but knowing the information is not the same as watching it unfold as You live it.

I strongly recommend we meet at least 2 times so you can experiment with the information and we can talk about what you discovered. Ongoing “coaching” is available too.

Please contact Joan via email with your birth data and phone number prior to purchasing a session.

What people have said about Joan:

“Joan’s depth of knowledge, her intuition about what to share, and the way she conveys the information moves energy. It literally reconfigured my sense of Self.” ~ Jewels Maloney

“It’s been only one month since our meeting, but so many things have changed! I’m almost like another person, haha! Everyday a new discovery regards being a Reflector, it has been really nice. (though sometimes a little challenging, but that’s life) ~ M.N.

“You’ve given me so many tools over the many years we’ve worked together. Being able to tune in, take the time I need to make good decisions – and trust how I feel about things – has been one of the best.” ~ M.B.

“I don’t know if I should love your or hate you for sharing this information with me. ~ S.D.

“Thank you for our session we had a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to let you know that I have on several occasions stopped myself from being impulsive/spontaneous based on the information that you provided me on my human design.  I have also been more aware of letting people come to me versus me pursuing them.” ~ Y.D.

“It is good to be working with a Generator who has had to surrender to the form principal AND has the entrepreneurial skills to really navigate this plane. She is basically in charge of everything!!” – John
