Joan Anderson

Joan Anderson is a sought-after motivational speaker, workshop leader, and retreat facilitator. She spent the last 10 years writing memoirs that ask the question most women ask themselves: Who am I beyond the roles I play? She took a year out of her busy life to live by the sea on her own. From that year, during which she befriended Joan Erikson, wife and collaborator of Erik Erikson, the famed psychotherapist, came five books: A Year by the Sea, An Unfinished Marriage, A Walk on the Beach, A Weekend to Change Your Life, and The Second Journey. She has appeared twice on the Oprah Winfrey Show, as well as the Today Show and Good Morning America.
