The Inner Light … and the Beatles, with Joanne DiMaggio

April 10, 2024

Please join us and our guest, Joanne DiMaggio, for a show on The Inner Light: How the Beatles Planted the Spiritual Seeds in Our Soul. For over 35 years, Joanne DiMaggio MA, CHt, renowned author, speaker and therapist, has pursued a passionate interest in reincarnation research and past-life therapy. Having penned many books on the topic, she is a highly sought-after conference speaker and an acclaimed guest on numerous radio programs and podcasts.

So why now write a book about the Beatles? “Well, for starters,” says Joanne, “it answers the question of why I became so immersed in the world of esoteric philosophies. In The Inner Light, I recount my years as a Beatles fan club president and my perspective on how the sixties, the music, and the Catholic Church played a role in my own spiritual evolution. And now, as we approach the 60th anniversary of the group’s arrival in New York, it is time to share my story with the millions of others who have been equally and inextricably influenced by this extraordinary group.”

Joanne explores the band members’ esoteric beliefs, particularly expanded and reflected in their music, after their trip to India to work with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the creator of Transcendental Meditation. Joanne also pieces together group members’ viewpoints on reincarnation, death, past lives, group incarnations, astrology, tarot, numerology, and kundalini energy. She also explores how John Lennon and Paul McCartney used writing in an altered state of consciousness to compose some of their music. At the end of the book Joanne revisits the question of whether the Beatles were the ones responsible for illuminating the path that led her from being a Beatles fan club president to a career as an acclaimed past-life researcher and author. She answers it with a resounding, YES! Learn more at
