Greetings and thank you for visiting

My name is Dr. Joan Hangarter, DC, known by many as Joan of Angels for the visionary art and the messages from spirit that come through my work. I have been assisting people from all corners of the world for almost 40 years,  inspiring, healing, and uplifting thousands as a doctor and a counselor, doing many long-distance "readings."  My background as a chiropractor along with a Masters Degree in Counseling has given me the skills to effectively heal and counsel those willing and ready to make a change for the better.

My life transformed on October 31st, 2013, when I began hearing messages to paint 33 angels in 30 days, thus launching my work as an artist and a channel for these divine beings to assist humanity.

As a result, I created the Desert Heart Sanctuary where I paint, channel messages, offer guidance,  and share this high vibrational work with the world. 

It's been a joy to feel the energy of divine beings move through me. I hope you can feel it too. When a painting resonates with you, it usually means the beings themselves are calling you to connect. Reach out to me if you need more clarity or wish to receive the paintings and channeling.
