About Joan Harthan the author of Dreaming Yourself Aware
Originally from Saddleworth (NE of Manchester) Joan currently lives in the East Midlands. She describes herself as a bridge between two camps. Having worked in mainstream academia for many years she acknowledges the spiritual aspect of dreaming and has a particular interest in Shamanic dream work.
Her successful and varied career, developed relatively late in life, was directed and informed by her dreams. Following many years of living in the grey twilight of what if, may be, when and if, her dreams encouraged her to make the decision to go to University at age 37. She graduated with a PhD in Chemistry and took up a Teaching Fellowship at The University of Nottingham. Four years later she moved into the FE sector where she was employed as a Lecturer in Clinical Physiology / Biomedical Science before returning to The University of Nottingham as a Lecturer in Food Science. Here she instigated undergraduate research into the dreams of women attending a bone density clinic to see whether deteriorating bone condition was being reflected in their dreams. She also studied the effects of nutrition on sleep disturbance in menopausal women.
Always a strong dreamer, she never saw her dreams as any more than a curiosity until a personal tragedy, over twenty years ago, was foreshadowed in a dream, forcing her to take them more seriously. She has kept a daily, illustrated, dream journal ever since and has recorded in excess of 6000 dreams to date. At the end of each year she has her journal professionally bound; they make a very interesting addition to her large book collection. In 1995, whilst still a student, she began to run regular dream workshops and has facilitated dream work groups since then, including workgroups for students studying for a Diploma in Counselling. Her first book, Working the Nightshift, How To Understand Your Dreams, details the techniques covered in the workshops and is available from her website http://www.docdreamuk.com .
A member of the International Association for the Study of Dreams, (IASD), she has had articles and papers published in their magazine Dreamtime and has presented at international conferences in Europe and America. She has a particular interest in the neurobiological aspects of sleep and dreaming, having presented a paper at the IASD 21st Annual Conference in Copenhagen; “A Theoretical Perspective on the Function of REM Sleep”, which explored the possibility of a link between REM sleep and the generation of new brain cells. She has also been featured in a popular women’s magazine and has done a number of radio interviews. If asked whether she could have achieved so much without reference to her dreams, her answer is a resounding “no”. Her dreams gave her the confidence to make major life changes, secure in the knowledge that she was making the right decision. They have been the lanterns that have illuminated the path ahead.
