As owner of The Healing Dream Garden LLC, Fran Kramer explores with her students and clients the relationship of dreams and intuition to spirituality, health and wellbeing. She lives in Ewa Beach, Hawai'i – a real garden of healing. She is an educator, writer and holistic life coach whose passion is communicating the power of inner wisdom to transform our lives, beginning at the spiritual level and working outward through the great gifts of the body as a sender and receiver of healing energy. Her blog, www.frankramer.wordpress.com, has reached thousands of people around the world and gives specific advice on dreams and intuition. She teaches classes on spirituality, dreams, intuition, and energy healing at various venues to include university, hospital, and church and community settings.
Fran Kramer spent her childhood in Hawaii and Japan. She attributes her life-long love of Asia and cross-cultural influences to these early years when she could see the back of the head of the Great Buddha at Kamakura from her bedroom window. With both a BA and MA in Asian Studies, Ms. Kramer taught classes on World Religions, Comparative Mysticism, Death & Dying, and the Meaning of Existence at the college level. She worked as a Maryknoll Lay Missioner in Japan promoting the Hospice Movement and working with the homeless in Tokyo. She has written two novels: The Traveling Sketchbook: An American Kid Discovers Japan and Dead Men Do Tell Tales, a Young Adult Mystery novel.
Fran views her life as one long series of healing and transforming changes which have filled her with awe and wonder. These transformations have been fed and led by over 40 years of dreamwork and a grounding in the Christian faith. One such transformation was a profound kundalini awakening which began in 2007 and continues to bring energy and direction into her life.
