JoAnna with Family & Friends

in the larger Women's Community

JoAnna is Dianic High Priestess, UCM Minister, and Founding Mother of The Sacred Circle, a self-supporting sisterhood of recovering women who are reclaiming the ancient ways of Mother Nature to heal from all seemingly hopeless states of mind and body.  She's been recovering and reclaiming for over 30 years!
