Dr. Diane Dreher was born in Louisville, Kentucky and traveled extensively throughout her early life. The child of an Air Force colonel, she lived in the Philippine Islands and Germany, becoming fascinated with the convergence of Eastern and Western spirituality. She began a profound inner journey in her early twenties, did graduate work in England at the University of Birmingham in Stratford-upon-Avon, and earned her Ph.D. in Renaissance literature at UCLA. She finds her vocation helping others connect with their creative potential and discover their own vocations.

Diane Dreher lives in northern California with her husband, neuroscientist Dr. Robert Numan, their dachshund Ginny, and horse, Little Darlin'.
