I’m Dyana, and I’m an oracle. I started doing Woke Up Knowing™ experiences in 2011 when I had a waking vision of being in a bed in an ancient castle with people sitting around my bed waiting to hear a dream I had. Years later, I have dreamt in several countries, in languages I didn’t speak, for seekers, artists, scientists, and humanitarians.

I practice an unsupervised oracular tradition that has no formal training. Currently, I have few peers. I believe these things are changing as more of us step out of the quiet and into the light.

This is my service. This is my art. This is Woke Up Knowing™.

I use she/her/hers pronouns and work on colonized land of the Kizh and Gabrieliño people.

interviews with:

Nicole Antoinette from Real Talk the sometimes gory underbelly of doing a fringe-dwelling business, a great and thorough process of getting past the Right/Wrong questions and into the REAL, and my own(sometimes messy) relationship with money,

Tara McMullin on What Works about how my business started, money, how I tested and developed my practice. Transcript.

Heidi Rose Robbins on spirituality and my work, membership+belonging, my astrology, and I even read two poems in this interview!

Julie Parker on The Priestess Podcast, where I do a live piece of work with Julie, and talk about opening up to our work.

Mara Glatzel on Needy. We talked Money, Sex and Dismantling White Supremacy At HOME.

Esmé Weijun Wang on The Unexpected Shape blog. This one is older, and about my work with my decision-making model, SuperConditions™.

I’d love to know what you thought after you listen/read to these pieces. Take good care and thank you for your time.

I enjoy being a guest on stages, podcasts, programs, or in public art projects. Please ring +1 310 663 6630 or email to invite me.

Philosophy

My work is about finding a way to shifting away from the life-above-the-eyebrows intellectual approach to problem solving. Too often, we limit what we are capable of to what “works on paper.” Get beyond those traps and expand your capacity to discern your natural no and crystal clear YESses that affect your life, career and relationships.
