JOAN ANGUS – Magazine’s Poetry Editor and Book Series Contributor
Joan Angus was brought up in Yorkshire at the foot of the Hambledon Hills, went to an Anglican Convent School, and worked as an Occupational Therapist mainly in Hampshire, where she raised her family. She is now a grandmother of four. A country girl at heart, her passions are her dog, wildlife, gardening, writing and sewing. She regularly practises Tai Chi and runs a local GreenSpirit group in the Solent area, meeting at the Celtic Festivals. Joan has researched her family history, and has written novels based on this.
She says: “I became hooked on GreenSpirit at the Leicester conference in 2004 where David Abram was the speaker. The movement and all it stands for fulfils my spiritual needs, and gives me the opportunity to be with like-minded people who speak my language.”
Joan served on GreenSpirit Council as Secretary for several years and helps to run GreenSpirit’s Annual Gatherings. In 2020 she compiled and released Anthology of Poems for GreenSpirits in the GreenSpirit Book Series.
